Vastavam web: In a lengthy post shared on Instagram, Michelle Obama has called upon the country to honor the 2020 election results and “encourage a smooth transition of power.” Donald Trump, who still hasn’t conceded, recently admitted Joe Biden won the election, but claimed that it was “rigged.” Michelle Obama directly addressed Trump’s refusal to budge, while also reflecting on where she was four years ago when Hillary Clinton lost to Trump.
The Obamas helped along a smooth transition of power between the administrations, which is something Trump doesn’t appear to be interested in. “My husband and I instructed our staffs 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.” The former First Lady went on to explain that aiding that transition of power wasn’t easy for her, especially as Trump had infamously spread racist lies about her husband in the past.
“I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside,” she said. “So I welcomed Melania Trump into the White House and talked with her about my experience, answering every question she had—from the heightened scrutiny that comes with being First Lady to what it’s like to raise kids in the White House.”
