The former first lady of the US Michelle Obama has criticized President Donald Trump as Democrats all ready to select Joe Biden as their White House challenger.
Ms. Michelle said in a recorded message to the Democratic convention, “Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country.”
She criticized Donald Trump, saying, “You simply cannot fake your way through this job”. She was wearing a necklace that mentioned “Vote”.
She added: “Our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this president downplayed for too long.”
Mrs. Obama added: “Stating the simple fact that a black lives matter 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.”
She said that the last four years had been difficult to explain to America’s children.
“They see our leaders labeling fellow citizens enemies of the state while emboldening torch-bearing white supremacists.
“They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages and pepper spray and rubber bullets are used on peaceful protests for a photo op.”
Mrs. Obama continued: “Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country… he is clearly in over his head, he cannot meet this moment.”
On the other hand, she appreciated Mr. Biden, saying he is a “profoundly decent man”, he has good experience as a candidate as vice-president under her husband, President Barack Obama.
“We have got to vote for Joe Biden as our lives depend on it,” she said.
