In excerpts from her memoir “Becoming”, Michelle Obama has said he she would “never forgive” Mr Trump for the “xenophobic” claims that her husband was not actually born in America, reports The Hill magazine.
In the talk, Obama will be discussing her memoire titled Becoming with the award winning novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. They will talk about her experiences from childhood, her work, motherhood and &her time spent at the worlds most famous address. She will also be sharing life-lessons learned while hoping to inspire people to become the very best version of themselves.
“The whole thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” the former First Lady wrote.
“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 familys safety at risk. And for this Id never forgive him,” she said.
The book, which is set to release on November 13, details the her early life in Chicago all the way through to her time as First Lady, and includes her feelings of shock and disbelief following Trumps election in 2016.

Other criticism in the book was aimed at Trumps comments about women on the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” tape, as well as his conduct during debates with his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.
