    Supporters of the US Democratic Party, frustrated by the first political initiatives of Republican US president of Donald Trump, want former US first lady Michelle Obama, also known as the "mother-in-chief," to run for president in the next presidential election.

    In late 2016, Facebook users created several communities named "Michelle Obama For President 2020."

    The groups consist of more than 1.5 million people who consider Michelle to be a perfect candidate for the post of US President in the next election.
    Disappointed about Trump's policy, some social media users discussed the strengths of US ex-president Barack Obama's wife.

    Since Barack Obama is no longer able to take the post of the head of state according to the country's constitution, his fans are pinning their hopes on the former first lady.

    Michelle Obama herself repeatedly said she is not going to take part in the election.

    "I don't believe in playing games. It's not something I would do, but it also speaks to the fact that people don't really understand how (being in the White House is). I mean, the next family that comes in here, every person in that family, every child, every grandchild, their lives will be turned upside down in a way that no American really understands," she said in an interview with the US media in December.

    However, the Internet users have not given up and are calling on Michelle to reconsider her position.
