Michelle Obama Slams 'Racist' Donald Trump And Says He's Not Fit To Lead America
| Last updated
Michelle Obama has come out swinging against President Donald Trump in an effort to get people to vote.
The former First Lady has uploaded a more than 20-minute video to her social media accounts where she laid into the Commander in Chief.
Mrs Obama even went as far as saying Trump isn't fit to lead the country.
"In the greatest crisis of our lifetimes, he doubled-down on division and resentment, railed against measures that could have mitigated the damage," she said in the clip.
Michelle added that what has been one of the most disparaging things to witness is the President downplay the seriousness of the coronavirus.
"Seven months later, he still doesn't have a plan for this virus," she said. "Seven months later, he still won't wear a mask consistently and encourage others to do the same. Instead, he continues to gaslight the American people by acting like this pandemic is not a real threat."
President Trump and First Lady Melania both tested positive for coronavirus last week and the leader had to be hospitalised over the weekend for treatment.
He's since been discharged and his doctor says he is no longer experiencing symptoms of the disease.
But Michelle Obama didn't just focus on Trump's leadership during the pandemic.
She said Trump and his mates' attempts to stoke 'fears about Black and brown Americans' have been designed to 'distract from his breathtaking failures by giving folks someone to blame other than them'. She's labelled these efforts as 'morally wrong' and 'racist', but claims it won't work to divide America.
Michelle used her social media video to encourage people to vote, even if they are undecided on which candidate they want.
It's less than a month before Americans will have to put their votes in for the November 3 election and it's sure as hell shaping up to be a big decider.
Mrs Obama said: "I want everyone who is still undecided to think about all those folks like me and my ancestors.
"The millions of folks who look like me and fought and died and toiled as slaves and soldiers and labourers to help build this country. Racism, fear, division, these are powerful weapons. And they can destroy this nation if we don't deal with them head on.
"Imagine how it feels to wake up every day and do your very best to uphold the values that this country claims to holds dear - truth, honour, decency - only to have those efforts met by scorn, not just by your fellow citizens, but by a sitting president."
