New Delhi : In a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention, former US First lady Michelle Obama tagged Donald Trump as 'the wrong President for the country'.

"Let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is," Michelle said in her address on the opening night of the 2020 Democratic National Convention.

She also tore apart President Donald Trump for being less responsible in actions against coronavirus, a disease which has killed more than 170,000 Americans and left the economy in "shambles." 

"More than 150,000 people have died, and our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this president downplayed for too long. It has left millions of people jobless. Too many have lost their health care; too many are struggling to take care of basic necessities like food and rent; too many communities have been left in the lurch to grapple with whether and how to open our schools safely," she said.

She urged people of the US to vote for Joe Biden in the upcoming Presidential polls.

Obama cautioned that if Americans think things cannot possibly get worse, "trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it".
