Michelle Obama delivered an emotional speech on Monday, August 17th, in a pre-recorded message to the Democratic Convention. In the pre-recorded tape, Michelle Obama blasts Donald Trump, saying that he is the wrong president for the country, and warns American citizens not to vote for Trump, in the up-coming U.S presidential election.
“Let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can , Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country,”Michelle said in her speech, “He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what is.”
In her speech, she urges U.S voters to reject Donald Trump, and vote for Joe Biden in the U.S 2020 presidential election. Michelle’s Speech was a more direct and political one, unlike her “memorable 2016 Democratic National Convention Speech”, where she used her now well known phrase “When they go low , we go high”, without referring to the then Presidential candidate, Donald Trump. In her 2020 DNC speech, Obama also explained the true meaning of “Going High” in her well known phrase.
She said, “But let’s be clear,” Going High does not mean putting on a smile and saying nice things when confronted by viciousness and cruelty. Going high means taking the harder path. It means scraping and clawing our way to that mountain top. Going high means standing fierce against hatred while remembering we are one nation under God, and if we what to survive, we’ve got to find a way to live and work together, and work together across our differences. And going high means unlocking the shackles of lies and mistrust with the only thing that can set us free; the cold hard truth.
Her speech became the highlight of the Democratic Convention on Monday. Michelle Obama, who has also been Democrat’s dream candidate, for a very long time, addressed her true view on taking part in politics.
“We live in a nation that is deeply divided, and I am a Black woman speaking at the Democratic Convention”, she said. ” But enough of you know me by now. You know that I tell you exactly what I’m feeling. You know I hate politics. But you also know I care about this nation,” Obama said in her pre-taped speech.
Obama’s speech was very remarkable, in the fact that, in only 18 minutes, the former first lady did not fail to address every crisis the United States faces till date. Her speech is also highly acclaimed for what she said about Joe Biden. Although, she said that ‘Joe is not perfect’, but also says, “But there is no perfect candidate, no perfect president. She further urged the citizens of America to vote for Joe Biden in the up-coming elections.
She said, “If you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this; If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can, and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday morning, Donald Trump fired back at Michelle Obama after her DNC speech. He said, “Well she’s in over her head, and frankly, she should’ve made the speech live, which she didn’t do. “She taped it. And it was not only taped, it was taped a long time ago, because she had the wrong deaths. She didn’t even mention the vice presidential candidate.”
The U.S 2020 presedential election, is scheduled to hold on, Tuesday, November 3, 2020. It will be the 59th quadrennial presidential election in the U.S.
While the world awaits the outcome of this election. We leave you, our readers , with this question. “Who do you support, Biden or Trump?
