Former first ladyMichelle Obama in her upcoming book laid out her most damning statement against President Donald Trump, who she said promoted the "dangerous" birther conspiracy that could have endangered her family's safety. Michelle went in-depth on Trump's comments, saying "What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?" she wrote in the book "Becoming".
"Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she added. "I'll never forgive him [Barack Obama] for what he did to our military", he said.
In the book, Obama also spoke about her reaction to the "Access Hollywood" video in which Trump boasted about sexually assaulting women.
Mrs Obama writes that they met with a counsellor "a handful of times", and she came to realise that she was more "in charge" of her happiness than she had realised.
Trump's message, according to Obama, in words which appear in the book in darkened print: "I can hurt you and get away with it".
The Washington Postobtained a copy of Becoming, and the Post notes in a Thursday evening review that Obama discusses "what she calls the angry black woman "trap" that dogged her".
She expresses disbelief over how so many American women would choose a "misogynist" over Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, "an exceptionally qualified female candidate".
