The former first lady attacked Trump over his cuts to her school lunch regulations.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama bashed President Trump for relaxing regulations on school lunch programs at the Partnership for a Healthy America Summit on Friday.

“Why don’t you want our kids to have good food at school?” Obama asked. “What is wrong with you?”

“This is really where you have to look at motives,” she said.

“Think about why someone is ok with your kids eating crap,” Obama continued. “Why would you sit idly and be ok with that?”

The former first lady implied that the Trump administration does not care about children, due to its slashing of regulations.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced earlier this month that the Department of Agriculture would loosen the regulations that required school lunches to meet strict nutritional standards.

“Perdue recalled hearing from many students who have complained about fat-free and reduced fat chocolate milk offered in schools,” according to ABC News.

Widely regarded as a non-political figure, Obama descended into the partisan fight as soon as she saw one of her projects under attack.
