Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s new book “Becoming” slams President Donald Trump for his racist birther conspiracy about President Obama not being born in the U.S.
The Washington Post published an excerpt:
The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed. But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,
What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.
In response to the book, Trump claimed President Obama did not fund the military properly when Trump’s military budget is almost identical to President Obama’s budget:
I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. It was depleted, everything was old and tired, and I came in and I had to fix it, and I’m in the process of spending tremendous amounts of money. So I’ll never forgive him for what he did to our military. I’ll never forgive him for what he did in many other ways, which I’ll talk to you about in the future.
