President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticise the former First Lady, after she made an impassioned speech endorsing Joe Biden as the Democrat’s nominee for President last night. During the speech, Ms Obama attacked Trump’s qualifications and handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Trump wrote: “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 that very late & unenthusiastic endorsement…
“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!”
His criticism of Ms Obama comes after she accused the Republican President of “chaos, division and a total and utter lack of empathy”.
She argued the President is incapable of leading the country during this moment of crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The former First Lady was especially frank about his lack of qualifications to hold the top job and said: “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.”
