Michelle Obama returned to the Democratic National Convention to urge voters to elect Joe Biden as president, as another four years of Trump will only cause Americans to suffer more greatly.
"Let's be clear: going high does not mean putting on a smile and saying nice things when confronted by viciousness and cruelty. Going high means taking the harder path. It means scraping and clawing our way to that mountain top," Obama said. "Going high is the only thing that works, because when we go low, when we use those same tactics, we just become part of the ugly noise."
"If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe [Biden] like our lives depend on it. A president's words have the power to move markets. They can summon our better angels or awaken our worst instincts. You simply cannot fake your way through this job. Being president doesn't change who you are; it reveals who you are."
