Why Michelle Obama Will 'Never Forgive' President Trump

Michelle Obama and Donald Trump

Obama, 54, said she and her husband and former president Barack Obama underwent fertilization treatments to conceive daughters Sasha and Malia, now 17 and 20.

"Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she added.

In the book, Obama says she will "never forgive" Trump for his incessant obsession with her husband's birth certificate, revealing that the lie put her family in danger. "She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always insisted you come up with controversial".

The former first lady writes that she assumed Mr Trump was "grandstanding" when he announced his presidential run in 2015.

While Obama has largely refrained from criticizing Trump, she did compare his presidency to "bad parenting" in April and speculated that the reason Clinton lost was that "people weren't comfortable voting for a woman sadly".

A reporter asked Trump for his reaction to former First Lady Michelle Obama's forthcoming book, Becoming.

President Trump has elected not to let Michelle Obama's criticism of him slide and chose to hit back, alleging she wrote that passage to generate controversy for more book sales.

During the same press gaggle, Trump also responded to questions about acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mrs Obama also expresses disbelief over how so many women would choose a "misogynist" over Hillary Clinton in 2016. The two met while she was his adviser at the law firm Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago, Illinois.

"As soon as I allowed myself to feel anything for Barack, the feelings came rushing - a toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder", she writes of her now-husband, 57.

"But it was also unsafe, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", she adds.
