“That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ To me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.”

Despite her criticism, Obama said she and former President Obama want Trump to be successful as president. 

"When you’ve been in that position, you have a different perspective," she said. 

This is not the first time Obama has been publicly critical of last year's election results.

She said in a speech last week that the White House was being led by fear. 

“It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump's "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.”
