In Michelle Obama's new memoir, "Becoming," the former first lady denounces Trump's behavior on the campaign trail and in his past, particularly toward women, accusing Trump of using body language during an election debate to "stalk" his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, the Associated Press reports after receiving an early copy.

The details: In the book, scheduled to hit shelves Tuesday, Obama discusses how Trump followed Clinton around the stage, saying he "stood too close and tried to diminish her presence," and criticizes Trump for bragging in 2005 about sexually assaulting women in the "Access Hollywood" tape. She recalls the night she found out Donald Trump would become president and how she tried to "block it all out."
