Excerpts of Obama's upcoming memoir were reported on Friday, including ones where she criticizes Trump, saying she won't forgive him for his years of spreading conspiracy theories to delegitimize her husband's presidency.

Michelle Obama says Trump's viscious campaign was "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks" and she always felt threatened that one of these wingnuts would take out their anger on her husband or children. "What if that person went looking for our girls?" she writes in the memoir. "Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she wrote.

Obama was also candid in her book about how she felt when she first heard Trump's lewd "grab them" comments about women and wrote her "body buzzed with fury". I'll never forgive [former President Barack Obama] for what he did to our United States military by not funding it properly. "(.) What he did to our military made this country unsafe".

As Michelle Obama prepares for the release of her highly anticipated memoir Becoming (and a star-studded arena book tour), she's making clear she'll be holding nothing back.

Mr Trump's message, according to Mrs Obama, in words which appear in the book in bold print: "I can hurt you and get away with it".

She writes that Trump's questioning of whether her husband was an American citizen was "crazy and mean-spirited" - and "dangerous".
