Former First Lady Michelle Obama's memoir, "Becoming", takes aim at President Trump and reveals person details that she's sharing publically for the first time.

Married for nearly 26 years, the Obamas represent the flawless couple. It was about me exploring my sense of happiness and my voice ― the notion that you come to a relationship whole and that I couldn't look to Barack and he couldn't look to me to be everything.

A then-teenaged Malia Obama urged her parents to "just be cool please, okay" when they met her prom date, Michelle Obama recalls in her new memoir "Becoming". She also admits she "stopped even trying to smile" at Trump's inauguration. And I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, we work on our marriage. "And we get help with our marriage when we need it".

"His foreign policy, and this lack of civility that Trump represents - I think he sees speaking out as exceptional behaviour required by exceptional circumstances".

Mrs. Obama also opened up about her thoughts on racism which she experienced first-hand from people around the globe.

Obama said that while she was a student at the high school she was doubted by her guidance counselor but applied to Princeton University and was accepted nonetheless. "And if my story, my journey somehow gives them hope - that they can build a powerful journey for themselves and that they can own their voice and share their story, that that's part of what makes us great".

In her upcoming book, Becoming, Michelle reveals that she'd had a miscarriage and used IVF (in vitro fertilisation) to conceive her daughters, Malia and Sasha, E News reports.

She spent her time entertaining, engaging in charitable endeavours, and attempting to provide some sort of normality to children being raised in a profoundly abnormal environment. "It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life", Obama said in a statement.

She then spoke about the need for promoting candidates who are committed to treating fellow candidates respectfully.

The mum-of-two said she wanted not only for her own children to feel at home there, but also for other guests. "It was a question that dogged me through my first month", she writes. In a strongly-worded attack on the U.S. leader, Mrs Obama said the "vibrant diversity" of her husband's previous inaugurations "was gone" when Mr Trump took the helm.

"It's important for you guys, that when you are at the table, you bring your full voice", she told them. The tour starts in her hometown of Chicago on November 13.
