President Barack Obama, in his farewell interview in this status, the magazine Rolling Stone dispelled the increasingly popular rumor that his wife Michelle Obama will participate in the presidential race in 2020.
“Michelle will never run,” he said.
The first black President of the United States did not fail to remind you that Michelle Obama is a talented man, able to capture the aspirations of the American people. “But she’s too sensible to want to engage in politics,” said Obama, explaining that last statement is a joke.
This is not the first time Barack Obama speaks about the impossibility of a political career of his wife. “There are three things in life, the inviolability of which you can be assured – death, taxes and the fact that Michelle will not participate in presidential elections”, – he said in January during a trip to Louisiana.
As recalled by The New York Times, Jimmy Kimmel show, Barack Obama said: “Michelle once admitted to me that he tries to organize his life so that it does not require much fuss, and politics is too much of a mess”.
And in March the first lady at the festival in Austin said: “I’m not going to run for President. No, I’m not going to do it.”
However, writes The Hill, after winning Donald trump’s election enthusiasts have formed three election Committee, seeking to coerce Michelle Obama for the presidential race. The hashtag # Michelle2020 got viral on social media and came tops Twitter. Petitions calling for the first lady to stand as a candidate gained thousands of signatures, and sites like www.ReadyforMichelle.com began collecting donations.
“Please join our mission to confront the President of the Trump with the same zeal with which Republicans are opposed to President Obama’s” call the supporters of the presidency of Michelle.
As noted by ET Online, Michelle Obama could beat Donald trump if he participated in the elections. During the Obama presidency it, as was shown by opinion polls, has remained consistently more popular than her husband. A public debate with trump about sexism and other bright performances only added to her fans.
While political activists continue to break a lance, Michelle Obama is busy decorating the White house for Christmas. Six-meter tree was taken last Friday on a wagon pulled by horses. Decorating the presidential residence were attracted 60 people.
