'This isn't a game': Michelle Obama rips into Trump for refusing to concede and says he put her family in danger with 'racist lies'
  • The former first lady Michelle Obama issued a direct call Monday for President Donald Trump to concede the 2020 election and allow for a peaceful transfer of power.
  • In an Instagram post, Obama opened up about her personal struggles with welcoming the Trumps to the White House on Inauguration Day in 2017.
  • "Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that put my family in danger," she wrote in the post. "But I knew that, for the sake of the country, I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside."
  • "I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do — because our democracy is so much bigger than anybody's ego," she added.
