Michelle Obama: Trump’s Message is ‘I Can Hurt You and Get Away With It’

Former First Lady Michelle Obama says in her new book that President Donald Trump is sending a message.

And that message is “I can hurt you and get away with it.”

Mrs. Obama’s words are found in her new book Becoming.

The Associated Press got their hands on an advance copy of the book set to be released on Tuesday.

In it, Mrs. Obama talks about Trump following around Hillary Clinton on the debate stage as well as the Access Hollywood tape as well as Trump’s message.

AP reports:

Obama denounces Trump for bragging in 2005, on the infamous Access Hollywood tape, about sexually assaulting women. She also accuses him of using body language to “stalk” Hillary Clinton, his 2016 opponent, during an election debate. She writes of Trump following Clinton around the stage, standing nearby and “trying to diminish her presence.”

Trump’s message, according to Obama, in words which appear in the book in darkened print: “I can hurt you and get away with it.”

The Obamas plan on donating a significant portion of the proceeds to charity.
