President Trump replied to Michelle Obama’s scathing criticism on Tuesday, Aug. 18, after she delivered her remarks to the Democratic National Convention (DNC,) calling her speech “extremely divisive.”

Speaking to reporters at a White House ceremony to commemorate the passage of Women’s Suffrage at the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the president said of Obama, “She was over her head.”

The president pointed to incorrect statements she made in the speech, such as the number of deaths from the CCP Virus, and no mention of Biden’s running mate, reported USA Today. “Frankly, she should have made the speech live, which she didn’t do—she taped it,” the president said. “And it was not only taped, it was taped a long time ago because she had the wrong deaths, she didn’t even mention the vice presidential candidate in the speech.” He added, “And yet, she gets these fawning reviews—if you gave a real review it wouldn’t be so fawning.”

During Obama’s taped remarks, she called the president “the wrong president for our country.” “If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it,” she said. “I know Joe. He is a profoundly decent man guided by faith.”

The president tweeted on Tuesday that he got the top job because former President Barack Obama and Biden failed to deliver to the American people, reported Fox News. “Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama 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,” President Trump tweeted early Tuesday.

The president also tweeted on Tuesday a reference to the success of his plan to rebuild America’s economy. It has happened despite the pandemic and interference from Democrats with riots and protests. “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,” the president tweeted. “Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow,” he said. “Sit back and watch!”

The president referred to the corruption of the previous administration in another tweet, and thanked Michelle Obama for her “very kind words.”
