Ever since he announced his candidacy for president last June, Donald Trump has dominated the headlines, creating an even wider political divide in the United States. Trump has made many enemies over the last 11 months, and it now appears the current First Lady is not holding back her views on the billionare real estate mogul.

Michelle Obama on Trump

Over the last week, President Barack Obama has amped up his attacks on Trump, most recently during a stop in Indiana. While the president has offered his thoughts on Trump, it seems his wife Michelle Obama is doing the same, which was witnessed during a graduation speech in New York, as reported by Politico on June 3.

Speaking to the graduating class at City College in New York on Friday, Obama warned of people who want to "build up walls to keep people out," and who also "view our diversity as a threat to be contained rather than a resource to be tapped." Obama didn't use Trump's name, but made it obvious by highlighting his most talked about policy proposals and ideas. "They act as if name-calling is an acceptable substitute for thoughtful debate," Obama said, stating, "As if anger and intolerance should be our default state rather than optimism and openness that have always been the engine of our progress."

"Here in America, we don’t give in to our fears, we don’t build up walls to keep people out," the First Lady continued, hitting Trump on his plan to build a wall across the Southern border in an attempt to curb illegal immigration.

The is the first time that Obama has joined with her husband to tackle the Republican nominee, regardless of whether or not they use his name. The Obamas are in their last year in office, winding down two full terms in the White House, as they push to keep either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders as commander in chief.

Election forecast

Surprising many, the former host of "The Apprentice" was able to become the last man standing in the GOP primary, clinching the nomination last month. According to Real Clear Politics most recent rolling average, both candidates are polling within the margin of error, though Clinton is expected to regain the lead following the conclusion of the Democratic primary next month.
