Michelle Obama ‘will not be running’ for US President, says office

Former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, has no intentions to run for President in the upcoming 2024 elections, her office has revealed, as per a report in NBC News.

“As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” said Crystal Carson, director of communications for her office.

“Mrs Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign.”

Meanwhile, Obama’s aid cited her conversation with Oprah Winfrey from last year as evidence of her way of thinking and the reason she would probably never run for office.

“Politics is hard. And the people who get into it … you’ve got to want it. It’s got to be in your soul, because it is so important. It is not in my soul,” in a Netflix special, she said.

In a 2022 BBC interview, she also said she “detests” questions about running for president.

Last month, Michelle Obama said she was “terrified” about the potential results of the 2024 presidential election, USAToday reported.

The development comes after a poll revealed that Michelle Obama was the leading choice to replace President Joe Biden as the Democratic party’s candidate for the presidential elections.

Notably, about 48 per cent of Democratic voters had expressed their choice of the party “finding another candidate to replace Joe Biden before the election in November”, compared to 38 per cent who disapprove.

The 2024 presidential election will all but see a possible rematch of Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
