Mrs Obama said she and her husband are building up their foundation so we can retire and be with each other, she told People’s magazine.

Ever since leaving the White House, both have remained in political life, including President Joe Biden’s campaigning.

There has been some speculation that Mrs Obama would herself run for office. 

In her interview, she opened up about her family’s experience during the pandemic. It includes moving home of their daughters, 19 and 22, from the university.

Our girls were supposed to have emptied of my nest, she said. I was celebrating that they were out building their lives and allowing me the emotional space to let them go.

She continued saying how the killing of black men at the hands of police has been going on still. Addressing the video of George Floyd experiencing that eight minutes, she said it was a lot to take on and not to mention being in the middle of a quarantine. Further, she said Depression is understandable during these times.

Statement on Donald Trump’s defeat in elections

When asked about former President Donald Trump’s election loss, Mrs Obama said we breathe for a moment. But, there’s still a lot of work to be done. She continued Barack, and I are focused on helping the next generation of leaders through the Obama Foundation.

We’re building our foundation for somebody else to continue the work so we can both retire and be with each other.

The Obama Foundation’s website always says it wants to inspire, empower, and connect people to change the world. It encompasses several fellowships and leadership projects and a project to build the Obama Presidential Centre on Chicago’s south side.

Mrs Obama is also set to be stared alongside puppets in an upcoming Netflix show to teach children about home cooking. 

Mrs Obama, also during her time in the White House, led a health campaign around improving child health.
