Michelle Obama Implores Donald Trump To Concede On Instagram

Michelle Obama Implores Donald Trump To Concede On Instagram

Alongside a photo of herself and her husband on inauguration day in 2016, Michelle began by reminiscing about that day, and the transfer of power that occurred when Trump took office.

While she's commented on her now infamous facial expressions showing her disappointment and annoyance about the transition of power, Monday's post also condemned Trump's refusal to accept the 2020 election results, which has now snowballed into a frightening power grab furthering compromising the democratic process in America.

Mrs Obama said although she and her husband were hurt and disappointed, they listened to the voice of the people and immediately set the transition ball rolling.

He urged the president to put the nation first and be remembered as one who was humble enough to shelve his personal interests for the common good of all.

"I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me", the 56-year-old wrote. Donald Trump publicly questioned Barack Obama's citizenship and religious beliefs, pushing the narrative that he was not born in the United States and ineligible to be president.

Taking a jibe at Trump for his unsubstantiated claims of victory in the U.S. election 2020 and his refusal for vacating his seat, she said "Our democracy is so much bigger than anybody's ego".

Just like ex-president George W. Bush and her wife Laura Bush ushered them (Obama and Michelle) at the White House in 2009, Michelle said, as a tradition, she invited Trump's wife Melania at her official residence and chatted with her on what to expect during her stay. "Our love for the country requires that we respect the results of an election even when we do not like them or wish it had been different: the presidency does not belong to any individual or to any party". "Because our democracy is much bigger than anyone's ego".

In light of the current turbulent transition period between administrations following the elections, former first lady Michelle Obama has since looked back at their own transition out of the White House.

"Mullen had put a call in to Pakistan's army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, and while the conversation had been polite, Kayani had requested that we come clean on the raid and its target as quickly as possible in order to help his people manage the reaction of the Pakistani public", he said.

But Trump, who has refused to concede, is claiming that the votes were rigged against him.
