Michelle Obama slammed Donald Trump in a series of tweets as she took a dig at his pride and suggested he’s trying to take away the power of vote from Americans.
While urging people to vote in the Tuesday runoffs in Georgia, the former FLOTUS took aim at the President for trying to overturn the election results and attempting to pressure Georgia Secretary of State to “find” him 11,780 votes in a leaked phone call.
“Your vote is your voice. It’s your power. And right now, from the President of the United States on down, we’re seeing and hearing just how desperate some are to take that power away,” Obama wrote.
“They want us to believe that their pride is more important than our democracy.”
The former FLOTUS also blasted the Trump administration’s handling of coronavirus as she insisted that the virus was “downplayed for far too long.”
“And this is just unconscionable at a time when a staggering number of Americans are dying every day from a virus that was downplayed for far too long. It’s unconscionable to focus on overturning an election rather than helping struggling families or distributing a vaccine,” Obama added.
In a call to action, the Becoming author went on to urge Americans to vote for Democratic candidates in Georgia’s runoff elections on Tuesday.
“Tomorrow’s runoffs in Georgia will decide whether the U.S. Senate is run by those who’ve shown their willingness to tear down our democracy – or whether it’ll be run by those who will actually get to work on the monumental challenges before us,” she said.
“These runoffs will decide whether President-Elect Biden has a Senate that will work with him rather than just obstruct him at every turn.”
As Obama insisted, “everyone’s voice matters” in America despite “some folks” attempting to claim otherwise.
