Obama has also reflected in her new book on how she wanted to "block it all out and go to sleep" on the November 2016 election night, when it became apparent that Trump would likely be the next to serve as USA leader after her husband. Before her book tour kicked off, ABC News anchor Robin Roberts interviewed her for various segments that ran on ABC's platforms.

Obama spoke to Roberts in a live interview in Chicago on the day her memoir, "Becoming," was released. "The hatred was old and deep and as unsafe as ever".

"When you're in the White House and you have that platform and that responsibility where every word matters, you're often thinking - or at least Barack and I often thought - 'Is what we're about to say going to help?' Is it going to move the needle forward?"

Asked on Friday about her comments, Trump did not answer directly and instead took a swipe at Barack Obama.

In "Becoming", Obama writes about deeply personal issues, including her past fertility and marital struggles, her anger at President Donald Trump and the bigotry and hate she encountered on the campaign trail. "I was so busy proving people wrong", she said.

Monday's stop at Whitney M. Young Magnet High School comes a day before the release of her book, "Becoming".

According to the sources, the accuser's face was "swollen and bruised" and she had "red marks" on both cheeks. She returned Wednesday to gather her belongings, but it looks like things quickly turned south.

Marko Arnautovic transfer: Chelsea want West Ham striker
Asked if it was possible Arnautovic could leave soon, his brother added: "That's possible". He should play for the worldwide spots. "Marko feels extremely comfortable at West Ham".

During a Wednesday morning segment on Fox & Friends, host Ainsley Earhardt pointed out that the current first lady had lashed out at the former first lady after she revealed that she had been snubbed by Ms. Trump.

The next time the women saw each other was in January 2017 when Donald Trump officially took control of the White House. "I stopped even trying to smile".

Obama said she felt her "biological clock" ticking, which led to her and Barack, 57, eventually turning to in vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive their daughters Malia, 20, and Sasha, 17. It was an important part of her journey that she is becoming by writing and sharing her story of this book. These shows seem to provide as much wish fulfillment for the celebrity moderators as they do for the audience; no matter how famous a woman may be, a sit-down with a beloved first lady is a rarity (even for Oprah).

"I could see in his eyes how broken [those images] had left him, what this had done already to his faith", Obama wrote.

"So many people are feeling uneasy... afraid of the impending darkness", she told the audience. "She's an icon and an incredible example for how we can live our lives".
