The wife of the US former President, Michelle Obama has recalled what her family did in 2016 when President Donald Trump emerged as the President-elect.
On Monday, She in an Instagram post weighed in on the refusal of Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump to move forward with a transition of power.
Michelle, the First Lady, also noted that though the process of ceding power to Donald Trump’s family was complicated, she persisted.
Michelle recalling the events of 2016, wrote, “I was hurt and disappointed — but the votes had been counted, and Donald Trump had won.
“My husband and I instructed our staff to do what George and Laura Bush had done for us: run a respectful, seamless transition of power — one of the hallmarks of American democracy.
“None of this was easy for me. Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that put my family in danger. That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive.”
Currently, the transition processes are yet to commence in the US because Donald Trump is backed by top members of the ruling Republican Party, and has refused to concede defeat to Joe Biden of the Democratic Party.
Though, Joe Biden scored over 270 and defeated Donald Trump in a tight race to the White House.
Joe Biden has since assumed his role as the President-elect, preparing to take over the White House.
But Trump has filed a flurry of court cases challenging Biden’s victory, insisting that the election was massively irregularities in the vote and the election was rigged.
Donald Trump had also expressed his hope of being declared as the winner of the election, saying results that would be announced would put him ahead of Joe Biden.
