"Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country."
Michelle Obama could not have been more frank in her message during the Democratic National Convention - an event that sees the party's president and vice president be officially nominated for the November 3rd US Election.
In her typically poised and passionate manner, the former first lady delivered a powerful speech in which she declared her support for presidential nominee Joe Biden, who is Barack Obama's former Vice President.
Wearing a delicate gold necklace with the four letters V-O-T-E strung out on a chain, Michelle Obama said the upcoming election had the potential to bring about necessary change for America, who has been the worst hit country by the coronavirus pandemic in terms of case numbers and deaths.
"More than 150,000 people have died, and our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this president downplayed for too long. It has left millions of people jobless. Too many have lost their health care; too many are struggling to take care of basic necessities like food and rent; too many communities have been left in the lurch to grapple with whether and how to open our schools safely."
Obama added that the state of America today is a sad display for the next generation to look up to.
"A nation that's underperforming not simply on matters of policy but on matters of character. And that's not just disappointing; it's downright infuriating," she said.
"So let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is.
