Michelle Obama rips Trump in 'closing argument' for Biden
October 7, 2020
Former first lady Michelle Obama launched a series of blistering attacks against President Trump on Tuesday, describing his policies as “racist” and accusing him endangering American lives with his behavior during the pandemic.
Obama, who rarely gets involved in day-to-day political fights, said in a 24-minute video meant as a “closing argument” for voters to turn out for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that the U.S. has descended into “chaos” because the “president isn’t up to the job.”
Without mentioning Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis, Obama accused the president of seeking to “gaslight the American people by acting like this pandemic is not a real threat.”
