In the book, Obama also describes how Donald Trump’s claims that her husband was not US-born affected her and her family.
According to the US Constitution, only natural-born citizens qualify for presidency. By alleging that Barack Obama did not meet this requirement, Trump effectively challenged the legality of Obama’s presidency.
Trump later deserted those claims, but offered no apology for making them in the first place.
Obama wrote in her book that she would “never forgive” him because the accusations put her family in danger.
Not being one to take blows lying down, Trump didn’t hold back when he reacted to the book.
He said that Michelle Obama was “paid a lot of money” for the book and controversy was expected.
“I’ll give you a little controversy back, I’ll never forgive [President Obama] for what he did to our US military. It was depleted and I had to fix it.”
Barack, however, didn’t let Trump get to him and instead focussed on his power wife.
