Michelle Obama says ‘it still hurts’ that Donald Trump won presidency

Michelle Obama has said people ‘feel they don’t matter on this planet’ and alluded to the pain she still feels around Donald Trump being elected, in her new memoir.

The former First Lady said ‘it still hurts’ after Trump was elected following her husband’s successful tenure.  

In her new book, ‘The Light We Carry’, which is her second memoir, she builds on her 2018 title ‘Becoming’, and aims to be a ‘toolkit to live boldly’.

Trump was President from 2017 to 2021, following one of the most successful presidencies in modern history as Barack Obama was elected the first black president.

In Obama’s new book she also reveals her ‘fearful mind’ and experience of depression during the pandemic.

She said that more people ‘feel like they don’t matter on this planet.’

Speaking to BBC she said:  ‘That’s that point in time when you have to ask yourself, was it worth it?’ she said.

‘Did we make a dent? Did it matter? And when I’m in my darkest moment, my most irrational place, I could say, well, maybe not. Maybe we weren’t good enough.

‘But then I look around, and when there is more clarity, when I’m able to unpack those feelings and think more rationally, I think, well, my gosh, there’s a whole world of young people who are thinking differently about themselves because of the work that we’ve done.’

She added: ‘Did everything get fixed in the eight years that we were there? Absolutely not. That’s not how change happens.

‘But we laid a marker in the sand. We pushed the wheel forward a bit. But progress isn’t about a steady climb upward. There are ups and downs and stagnation. That’s the nature of change.

‘And that’s why the work that we’re doing today is about empowering the next generation.’

It comes just hours after Donald Trump’s hopes of running for the 2024 US election were dealt a devastating blow after the Democrats held control of the Senate.

Republican hopes of a red wave were crushed in Las Vegas where Nevada senator Catherine Cortez Masto was declared the winner against ex-attorney general Adam Laxalt.

That means the Democrats achieved the magic number of 50 out of 100 Senate seats.

Last month the former president and his wife posted gushing tributes to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.

The 44th president celebrated their three decades together by posting pictures of Michelle and himself, and writing a heartfelt note on social media.

He said: ‘Miche, After 30 years, I’m not sure why you look exactly the same and I don’t. I do know that I won the lottery that day—that I couldn’t have asked for a better life partner. ‘Happy anniversary, sweetheart!’

Since its publication, her first book Becoming has been translated into 50 languages and more than 17m copies have been sold worldwide.

The Light We Carry is expected to similarly top bestseller charts.

 In 2020, she was named the most admired woman in America, according to Gallup’s poll, for the third year running.
