Michelle Obama: Donald Trump Leads With Fear

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

When asked how she views the world “right now,” former first lady Michelle Obama had less of an answer and more of a gut reaction. She cringed and quietly groaned. “I don’t have much of a poker voice,” Obama said with a laugh.

Though she didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name — a leader who’s spent much of his early tenure trying to erase the legacy of her husband, former President Barack Obama — the former first lady did tell a Salt Lake City audience Thursday that “we are looking at two different administrations.” One, she said, was built on hope. The other is being led with fear.

“It isn’t just us first,” she said, a reference to Trump’s “America First” agenda. “We live in a big country and a big world. … You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.”
