President Trump responded to Michelle’s comments by blasting former President Obama for failing to fully fund the U.S. military.
“I guess she wrote a book. She got paid a lot of money to write a book. And they always insist you come up with controversial. Well, I’ll give you a little controversy back. I’ll never forgive [Barack Obama] for what he did to our United States military. By not funding properly, it was depleted. Everything was old and tired. And I came in and I had to fix it.”
Trump added, “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.”
Both Michelle and former President Obama are upset that President Trump won the 2016 election and is actively undoing the former president’s legacy.
