Michelle Obama attacked Donald Trump on Monday night as ‘the wrong president for our country’ and ‘clearly in over his head’ in her first foray into the 2020 election.
The former first lady did not mince words when she closed out the opening night of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), giving her harshest assessment yet of the man who followed her husband into the Oval Office.
She unleashed on Trump at the end of the virtual convention’s first night.
‘Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is,’ she said.
It was a rare political punch from Michelle Obama, who typically stays out of the fray. But, on Monday, she made it clear she wants Trump out of office, warning things will just get worse if he’s re-elected.
