Michelle Obama views the impeachment proceedings involving President Donald Trump as "surreal," but believes the nation can make it through the current political turmoil.
The former first lady gave her thoughts on the impeachment inquiry in an exclusive interview with Jenna Bush Hager on TODAY Monday during a trip to Vietnam to raise awareness about the importance of educating young girls.
"It's surreal,'' she said. "I don't think people know what to make of it. But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah.
"We've seen tough times in this country. You know we've gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we've gone through Jim Crow, and we've always come out stronger. And that's what we have to continue to believe because what's our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well that's not fair to this next generation that's coming before us that are counting on us to get this right."
The impeachment proceedings have highlighted the political divide in the federal government and across the country, but Obama believes that can be overcome.
"It's not an 'us or them,' it's not an 'R or a D' (Republican or Democrat), we are all here as part of this country,'' she said. "We all want the same things, it's just sometimes that gets lost in the noise."
Obama announced her trip to Vietnam in October on the International Day of the Girl and has now traveled to the country as part of her Girls Opportunity Alliance to highlight the importance of education for young girls.
