Michelle Obama news: Donald Trump savages ex-FLOTUS as brutal row erupts – VIDEO | World | News

Michelle Obama, 56, launched a blistering attack on President Donald Trump on Monday and urged Americans to elect Democrat Joe Biden in November to end the chaos she said had been created during the four years of Trump’s presidency. In an impassioned speech shown on the first night of the Democratic National Convention, Mrs Obama said the Republican Trump “has had enough time to prove that he can do the job” but had failed to meet the moment in a country reeling from the coronavirus pandemic, economic turmoil and racial injustice. But President Trump has hit out at the former First Lady for her pre-recorded interview as he insists he wouldn’t have the job if Barack Obama didn’t do a “bad job”.

President Trump said: “Michelle Obama was over her head and frankly, she should have made the speech live, which she didn’t do – she taped it.

“And it was not only taped, it was taped a long time ago because she had the wrong deaths.

“She didn’t even mention the vice-presidential candidate in the speech and you know, she gets these fawning reviews.

“If you gave a real review, it wouldn’t be so fawning.

“I thought it was a very divisive speech, extremely divisive and frankly, I wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for Barack Obama.

“I wouldn’t be in the White House except for Barack Obama because they did a bad job – Biden and Obama.

“If they did a good job, I wouldn’t be here.

“I’d be building buildings someplace and having a good time.”

Michelle was in the White House when Biden was vice president from 2009-2017, capped a long parade of speakers, including some of Trump’s fellow Republicans, who gathered online to make the case for Biden at the start of his four-day nominating convention.

The harsh takedown by Michelle Obama, regularly cited in polls as one of the most popular figures in the Democratic Party, could generate the sort of voter enthusiasm some Democrats thought a virtual convention might lack.

The convention opened amid widespread worries about the safety of voting in November because of the pandemic. Democrats have pushed voting by mail as a safe alternative, but Trump without evidence has proclaimed it is prone to fraud and blocked emergency aid for the U.S. Postal Service to limit mail-in voting.

Mrs Obama referred to these concerns, saying those who could not win a fair election were trying to stop people from voting by closing polling places in minority neighbourhoods, purging voter rolls and lying about the security of mail-in ballots.

She said: “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.

“He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is. If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden as our lives depend on it.”

She added: “We have to vote for Joe Biden in numbers that cannot be ignored.

“We have got to grab our comfortable shoes, put on our masks, pack a brown bag dinner and maybe breakfast too because we’ve got to be willing to stand in line all night if we have to.”
