Michelle Obama is not one to mince words and she’s doubling down on previous statements that she is not going to run for President.
The former first lady was at Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston on Thursday when she told a crowd she does not have presidential aspirations.
“I don’t want to be president. I don’t think I should be president. I think I can do a lot of things, but that’s not one of them,” Obama said.
She is far more supportive in pushing women with those skills and have them pursue their dreams.
“We have to find women who understand their gifts and know where to put them to use,” she said. “We just can’t find the women we like and ask them to do it because there are millions of women who are inclined and do have the passion for politics.”
