Donald Trump Responds to Michelle Obama: I'll 'Never Forgive' Your Husband

Donald Trump has hit back at former First Lady Michelle Obama's attacks on him in her new book by calling her an attention seeker.

Michelle Obama called out the fact that Trump's comments towards her husband Barack could have caused a "wingnut" or "kook" to kill her family. Michelle Obama wrote. "Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk". She said she would "never forgive" Trump for advocating the crypto-racist "birtherism" claims that her husband was not born in the US.

Trump's message, according to Obama, in words which appear in the book in bolded print: "I can hurt you and get away with it". "What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you and you and you".

During a Friday morning pool spray at the White House, Trump addressed the former first lady's book.

"It turns out that even two committed go-getters with a deep love and robust work ethic can't will themselves into being pregnant", she writes.

Former US first lady Michelle Obama attends the United State of Women Summit at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, on May 5, 2018. "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

Becoming is set to be published on November 13, and her full interview will air on ABC this Sunday.




Others just trashed her memoir as a waste of trees.

"As soon as I allowed myself to feel anything for Barack", she writes, "the feelings came rushing - a toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder".

But she admits the couple on occasion turned to counseling, where they "learned how to talk out" problems. "But it was also risky, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks", she writes.

She also slammed him for bragging about sexually assaulting women, as a 2005 Access Hollywood tape, released before the 2016 election, suggests. He has a wife, he has young daughters, they felt like there were real consequences there, and I tie it to our colleague Tucker Carlson.

And while Trump suggested Obama left him with "old and tired" military equipment, Harvard University professor Matthew Bunn noted that it was Obama who, in 2015 "laid out a $1 trillion plan to modernize every aspect of the US nuclear arsenal over the next 30 years".

Obama also reiterates that politics isn't for her, alluding to her previous dismissal of a potential 2020 presidential run. "I continue to be put off by the nastiness".
