Trump pushes back at Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama and Donald Trump

In her upcoming "deeply personal" memoir, Becoming, the former first lady discusses everything from her love for Barack to her past fertility struggles - but she also boldly shares her honest feelings about the country's current president.

In her book, Michelle Obama has reportedly opened up about the uneasy early years of her marriage to the ex-President, the racists comments she had to deal with, and takes the opportunity to rip on the incumbent Commander-in-Chief.

"What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington", she wrote in her book, according to The Washington Post. Michelle Obama wrote. "Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk". "I'll never forgive him [Barack Obama] for what he did to our military", he said.

"She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy", Trump said.

"I'll never forgive him for what he did in many other ways", Trump continued.

She added, "That's one of the reasons why I think it's important to talk to young mothers about the fact that miscarriages happen". "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".

Fertility treatments allowed her to conceive daughters Malia, now 20, and Sasha, 17.

As the first black first lady, she knew she would be labeled "other" and would have to earn the aura of "grace" given freely to her white predecessors. "But it was also unsafe, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".

The former first lady also wrote in her memoir that her "body buzzed with fury" after she heard the now-infamous "Access Hollywood" tape where Trump bragged about grabbing women.

"We had to do IVF", she told ABC, in excerpts of an interview that will air in full on Sunday.

But she admits the couple on occasion turned to counseling, where they "learned how to talk out" problems.

And while Trump suggested Obama left him with "old and tired" military equipment, Harvard University professor Matthew Bunn noted that it was Obama who, in 2015 "laid out a $1 trillion plan to modernize every aspect of the US nuclear arsenal over the next 30 years". She writes lovingly of her family and gives a detailed account of her courtship with her future husband, whom she met when both were at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin LLP. "I continue to be put off by the nastiness".
