Michelle Obama reveals miscarriage and IVF treatment in new book

Obama says she would "never forgive" Trump for the rumors he spread questioning the legitimacy of President Barack Obama's American birth certificate, which she said threatened her family's safety. Michelle went in-depth on Trump's comments, saying "What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? What if that person went looking for our girls?" 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.

"President Barack Obama was born in the United States", Trump said during a press conference at the time.

The new book, which is primarily a biography, will reportedly detail her feelings on Trump and the 2016 presidential election. "It was depleted, it was old and exhausted, and I had to come in and fix it".

"The whole thing was insane and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed", the former First Lady wrote.

She also denounces Trump's "birther" campaign questioning her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted and risky, "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".

During the 2012 USA presidential election, Trump floated the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not a U.S. citizen, and touted the demonstrably false claim that Obama's birth certificate was not real.

Michelle also thought back to the first time she saw the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump is heard bragging about sexually assaulting women.

"I was very surprised, pleasantly surprised, by the level of candor and the level at which she opened herself up", she added. 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. She says Trump followed Clinton around the stage, stood too close, and tried to diminish her presence.

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

The Washington Post obtained a copy of Becoming, and the Post notes in a Thursday evening review that Obama discusses "what she calls the angry black woman "trap" that dogged her".

"This odd mix-of-everything-man", when she finally let him kiss her, set off a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder".
