(CNS News) -- In a series of tweets congratulating Democratic voters for backing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in their White House run, former first lady Michelle Obama chastised the more than 70 million Americans who voted for President Donald Trump, claiming that their votes meant supporting "lies, hate, chaos and division."

In a Nov. 7 tweet, Mrs. Obama praised Biden and Harris and claimed they were "headed to restore some dignity, competence, and heart at the White House," even though the election has not been decided and there are numerous legal challenges occurring. 

Mrs. Obama also tweeted, "Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division."

She then added, "We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us."

According to the Associated Press, so far, 71,051,857 Americans voted for Donald Trump. That is more than voted for Barack Obama in 2012 (est. 65,915,795 votes) and in 2008 (est. 69,498,516 votes).
