According to The Hill, Obama answered a question about the next presidential race with a joking jab at President Donald Trump. “At this point, everybody is qualified, and everyone should run,” the former first lady said.

Mrs. Obama also talked about her disappointment in the large group of women who decided to choose Trump over Hillary Clinton even after his offensive "grab them by the p***y" comments were made public, according to Time, with 53 percent of white women voting for Trump, Vox reports.
