Former first lady Michelle Obama slams Donald Trump on his refusal to admit defeat. Donald Trump has steady fast refused to accept that he has lost the 2020 Unites States Presidential Elections.
He has also refused to let the President elect Biden-Harris duo to enter the White house and have a smooth transition of power.
Michelle Obama slammed Donald Trump and the administration on social media as they hinder the transition process.
“I want to urge all Americans, especially our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honour the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history,” she wrote.
She them went on to recall how she and her husband, former president Barack Obama had welcomed the Trumps to the White House. They had been vocal in their support for Hilary Clinton who had contested against Trump in the 2016 elections.
Michelle Obama further added that she had to curb her disappointment at the result and welcomed the Trumps warmly.
“I was hurt and disappointed-but the votes had been counted and Donald Trump had won,” she wrote, saying that the transition had not been easy for her but she respected the choice the American people made.
“The presidency doesn’t belong to any one individual or any one party,” wrote Michelle Obama.
While it was difficult, Michelle still managed to gracefully invite and welcome the Trumps into the White House which had been home to the Obamas for 8 years.
“Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that put my family in danger. That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive.”
In her post, she said it took “strength and maturity to put my anger aside” and recalled welcoming Melania Trump into the White House, speaking to her about her own experience of living and raising children there.
“We invited the folks from the president-elect’s team into our offices and prepared detailed memos for them, offering what we’d learned over the past eight years,” wrote Michelle Obama, comparing this to Trump’s refusal to ensure a smooth transition of power.
Donald Trump has been constantly in denial despite the fact that media has declared Joe Biden as the winner the moment he crossed the necessary 270 electoral votes out of 538 member electoral college
“This isn’t a game,” Ms Obama wrote while concluding her post. “So I want to urge all Americans, especially our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honour the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history.”
