President Donald Trump early Tuesday launched a Twitter attack against former first lady Michelle Obama after her scathing Democratic National Convention speech that criticized his presidency and questioned his leadership with her declaration that he is "clearly in over his head."

“Somebody please explain to Michelle Obama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama,” Trump tweeted. “Biden was merely an afterthought, a good reason for that very late & unenthusiastic endorsement."

He added that his "administration and I built the greatest economy in history, of any country, turned it off, saved millions of lives, and now am building an even greater economy than it was before. Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow. Sit back & watch!”

Minutes later, the president added a pair of tweets attacking the former president and Joe Biden on other issues. 

"Looking back into history, the response by the ObamaBiden team to the H1N1 Swine Flu was considered a weak and pathetic one," Trump tweeted. "Check out the polling, it’s really bad. The big difference is that they got a free pass from the Corrupt Fake News Media!"

He then continued that the "ObamaBiden Administration was the most corrupt in history, including the fact that they got caught SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN, the biggest political scandal in the history of our Country. It’s called Treason, and more. Thanks for your very kind words Michelle!"

In her speech, Obama said that Trump is "the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is."
