Former First Lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday she understands those who were “excluded” from President Trump’s behavior during Tuesday’s first presidential debate.
“I can feel it. Believe me, I do,” Obama told his 42 million followers on Instagram and 17 million followers on Twitter one day after Trump discussed Democratic candidate Joe Biden in Cleveland. “But we can’t let him win by adjusting completely. That’s what he wants. “
