President Donald Trump responded after former First Lady Michelle Obama slammed Trump in her upcoming memoir.

He was asked by a reporter about the comment on Nov. 9 before he got on a plane. “She got paid a lot of money to write a book. And they always insist that you come up with controversial,” Trump told reporters.

Trump didn’t specifically address the former first lady’s comments, but he made a statement about former President Obama’s administration and how it dealt with the military.

And I came in and I had to fix it,” the president said. “What he did to the military made this country very unsafe.”
