President Donald Trump has hit back at Michelle Obama after the former United States First Lady criticised the American president ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
Legit.ng recalls that Obama, in her powerfully delivered speech at the first night of the Democratic convention on Monday, August 17, strongly charged Americans to vote out President Trump.
In her speech, Obama tore down the administration of President Trump, accusing him of creating “chaos,” sowing “division” and governing “with a total and utter lack of empathy.”
She urged Democratic voters to ensure they cast their votes in any way they could, even if it meant waiting in long lines to do so.
But in a swift reaction, Trump scolded Obama for her criticism, saying he became the president of the US because of what her husband did while leading the country.
Taking to his Twitter page on Tuesday, August 18, the US president also boasted about creating "the greatest economy in history which saved millions of lives."
"Somebody, please explain to Michelle Obama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama...
"My Administration and I built the greatest economy in history, of any country, turned it off, saved millions of lives, and now am building an even greater economy than it was before. Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow. Sit back & watch!" Trump said.

Meanwhile, President Trump has been labelled as the first racist U.S. president. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden gave this tag to the American president on Wednesday, July 22, while answering questions at a Service Employees International Union roundtable.
Biden was specifically asked to respond to Trump's calling of the coronavirus pandemic the “China virus.”
Biden said it was “absolutely sickening” how Trump “deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from".
