Trump Responds To Michelle Obama: I Wouldn’t Be Here If It Weren’t For Barack
President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday morning to respond to former First Lady Michelle Obama after her speech Monday night at the Democratic National Convention. Among many critiques of the President, Michelle called him “the wrong president for our country.”
“Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama. Biden was merely an afterthought, a good reason for the very late & unenthusiastic endorsement,” Trump first wrote.
He continued, “My Administration and I built the greatest economy in history, of any country, turned it off, saved millions of lives, and now am building an even greater economy than it was before. Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow. Sit back & watch!”
The tone of the former First Lady’s speech painted President Trump as a divisive leader who lacks empathy. “Four years later, the state of this nation is very different. More than 150,000 people have died and our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this President downplayed for too long.”
She added, citing George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and a number of unarmed African Americans killed, “… stating the simple fact that a black life matters is still met with derision from the nation’s highest office. Because whenever we look to this White House for some leadership, or consolation, or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos, division, and a total and utter lack of empathy.”
In a follow-up tweet Tuesday, the President wrote of the Obama-Biden Administration, calling it “the most corrupt in history, including the fact that they got caught SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN…”
He concluded, “It’s called Treason, and more. Thanks for your very kind words Michelle!”
