#Michelle2020 hopes dashed as Oprah asks First Lady the question on everyone's lips

Michelle Obama has shut down all rumours suggesting she will be running for the US presidency in 2020 in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

After the US election last month many Americans declared their wish for the popular First Lady to run for office in four years after the upset of a Trump win.

But alas, democrats will be disappointed to hear Mrs Obama's position is a very clear "no", as outlined in her post-election discussion with Oprah, which aired in the US today.

"No, no... If I were interested I would say it," she said. 

"Let me just tell America, this is hard... it requires a lot of sacrifice, it's not something you even look to one family to take on at that level for that long a period of time."

Reflecting on her time in the White House, Mrs Obama said her biggest regret was not doing more against gun violence. 

"We have spent so much time mourning with so many families, that's one of the hardest things," she told Oprah.

"I wish we could have rallied the nation to do something about it, that's something we didn't get done."

The Obama family will continue to live in the White House until Inauguration Day in January, when Donald Trump will take over the presidency.
