Former first lady Michelle Obama asked the Republicans of the Senate and the House of Representatives to acknowledge Joe Biden’s victory on Monday. In a candid Instagram post from her official handle, Mrs. Obama shared her experience in the 2016 power transition to the then-President-elect Donald Trump. Her post comes when President Trump and his administration are completely uninterested in honoring the victory of the former Vice President who shares a great bond with Obamas. “The presidency doesn’t belong to any single individual or any single party,” wrote Obama, sharing a photo with Barack Obama from the 2016 transition day.
She posted the photo with a heart-touching message, firstly about the agony dealt by Hillary Clinton after a close margin loss against Donald Trump. “This week in 2016, I’ve been reflecting a lot. Our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, had dealt a tough loss by far closer than the one that took place this year. Like every Democrat, I was hurt and disappointed,” said Mrs. Obama in her Instagram post. Although the loss has disappointed them personally, they didn’t let it come in the middle of the highest position they were holding, the Presidency of the United States. She added, “But the votes have already been counted, and Donald Trump has won the election. The American citizens had spoken. And one of the greatest responsibilities of the Presidency is to listen to them every single time. So my husband, President Obama, and I instructed our staff to prepare for what George and Lara Bush had done for us, to host a respectful, seamless transition of power to the President-elect, which is one of the hallmarks of our democracy.”
Sharing her experience, Mrs. Obama attacked Trump for not cooperating President-elect with the transition of power. “Presidency is not a game to play along. To pretend that it is and to play along with these groundless conspiracy theories - whether for personal or political gain will only put the country’s health and security in danger.” Obama also admitted that it wasn’t easy for her to accept Trump’s victory, as he spread racist lies against Barack Obama, which put her family in danger. “The racist lies from Trump weren’t something I was ready to forgive. But for the sake of our country, I had to find strength and maturity to put my anger aside.” Concluding her post, she wrote - “Our democracy is much bigger than anybody’s ego. Our love of country requires us to respect the results of any elections even when we don’t like the outcome. I urge all Americans, regardless of parties, to honor the electoral process and encourage a smooth transition of power.”Dr. Dhillon Randeep
