The results of the US Presidential elections came as a shock to the world as citizens around the globe woke up to the news that Americans had voted Republican Donald Trump to be their 45th President. And it's when the Americans realised that the future for them isn't just bright but 'orangey bright', that they started expressing that they would want Michelle Obama to run for President in 2020.
When Republican Donald Trump defeated favorite Hillary Clinton in Tuesday's presidential election, ending eight years of Democratic rule and sending the United States on a never taken path, the world was left in shock.
A wealthy real-estate developer and former reality TV host, Trump rode to the White House on a wave of anger and resentment against Washington insiders to win the race for the top job. His Opponent on the other hand was someone whose resume included stints as a first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
Voters who were in complete disbelief with Trump's spectacular and unexpected victory, were disappointed that the country failed to elect its first woman President.
But like they say those who believe in hope, never give up.
And Americans aren't giving up just as yet.
The people of America are calling out to Michelle Obama to run for the President in 2020. In fact, the voices on social media platforms have been so strong that the hashtag #Michelle2020 started trending soon after Trump's win.
The First Lady who is extremely popular among Americans and was lauded for several of her speeches during Hillary Clinton's campaign rallies, is already emerging as the one to take down President Trump next time the elections happen.
Here's how support for Michelle from all quarters have been pouring in to run for the 2020 US presidential elections.

Trump, who at 70 will be the oldest first-term U.S. President, came out on top after a bitter and divisive campaign that focused largely on the character of the candidates and whether they could be trusted to serve as the country's 45th president.
The presidency will be Trump's first elected office, and it remains to be seen how he will work with Congress, even though Republicans were set to retain control of both chambers. During the campaign Trump was the target of sharp disapproval, not just from Democrats but from many in his own party.
