Former First Lady Michelle Obama is not running for president in the 2024 elections.

After months of speculation, Mrs. Obama’s office issued a statement to NBC News saying her 2024 plans don’t include running for office.

“As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” said Crystal Carson, director of communications for her office. “Mrs. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign.”

Sources close to Obama say she intends to assist the Biden campaign this fall, as she did in 2016.

Last month, other sources said Obama was in talks with her people about a possible presidential run.

It was rumored that she was stepping up after President Biden recalled a recent conversation with former French President Francois Mitterrand.

Biden’s recollection raised alarms because Mitterrand died 28 years ago.

Sky News contributor Kristin Tate said Michelle Obama would “probably beat Trump in a landslide” if she ran for president.

“She’s very dangerous for Republicans,” Ms Tate told Sky News Australia host Chris Kenny.
