Michelle Obama slams Trump in new book

In some of her most extensive public comments on her White House years, the former first lady also lets her fury fly over President Donald Trump's "bigotry and xenophobia" - dangerous, deliberate rhetoric, she wrote, that risked her family's safety.

Michelle Obama discusses almost every aspect of her life in her highly anticipated, upcoming memoir, Becoming - including her dislike of President Trump.

She goes on. "What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk". I'll never forgive him (Barack Obama) for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. "She got paid a lot of money to write a book, and they always insist that you come up with controversial", Trump said.

Trump retaliated on Friday in a White House press spray, saying he won't forgive Barack Obama for "what he did" to the US military. She says she reacted in shock the night she learned Trump would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to "block it all out", according to a copy obtained by The Associated Press.

"What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you, and you, and you", the president concluded.

She also criticizes Trump's body language during a 2016 presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, which she says amounted to stalking.

"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.

Secretaries claimed Mr Obama was both brilliant and "cute" - although Michelle Obama was sceptical, writing that white people went "bonkers" any time you "put a suit" on a "half-intelligent black man".

"We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

The Global Girls Alliance aims to support more than 1,500 grassroots organizations combating the challenges girls encounter in their communities.

Fertility treatments allowed her to conceive daughters Malia, now 20, and Sasha (17).

"This unusual mix-of-everything-man", when she finally let him kiss her, set off a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder".

Michelle Obama's memoir will be released on November 13th. She writes about Mr Trump following Mrs Clinton around the stage, standing nearby and "trying to diminish her presence".
