Michelle Obama went on the attack recently against Donald Trump. Obama’s major initiative as First Lady, a program called “Let’s Move,” has been discontinued by the current administration.
In reference to Trump, Obama asked, “Why don’t you want our kids to have healthy food at school? What is wrong with you? And why is that a partisan issue? Why would that be political? Why someone is ok with your kids eating crap. Why would you celebrate that? Why would you sit idly and be ok with that? Cause here’s the secret, if somebody is doing that, they don’t care about your kid.”
Donald Trump certainly has made a statement in the past about his food preferences, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about America’s kids.

Michelle Obama’s unpopular “Let’s Move” program forced public schools to serve ‘healthy’ food options to students. It also tried to encourage children to avoid sedentary lifestyles and engage in physical activity.
Despite mainstream media praise for Obama’s program, a 2016 study found that the proportion of overweight children had risen to its highest levels ever in 2014, at 33.2%. When Obama launched the program in 2010, the rate of overweight children was around 31.8%.
The program clearly failed to stop the epidemic of overweight and obese children in America. So why does Michelle have such bad things to say about Donald Trump, who has been in office less than five months?
It looks Barack’s legacy isn’t the only one Trump is trying to undo. He’s also picking apart Michelle’s.
Along with the failed ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, Michelle Obama also started a huge monetary fund called ‘Let Girls Learn‘ to give away Americans’ money to developing countries. More than $1 billion was generated and donated to adolescent girls living in third-world conditions. Meanwhile, America’s neighborhoods and towns get poorer and many little girls in rural parts of the country are living in poverty.
We can be thankful Trump is dismantling the Obamas’ legacies. The sooner the better.
