Michelle Obama, the ex-FLOTUS, celebrated her birthday last Friday, making her 56-years-old. Donald Trump, the US president, was quick to quell any positive celebrations, however, when he announced on the same day his plans to scale-back Michelle’s school lunch initiative.
The ex-FLOTUS’ plans helped children in schools get their portion of fruit and vegetables as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
But, the Agriculture Department said in a press release the new standards will allow schools more flexibility "because they know their children best”.
And, Sonny Perdue, Agriculture Secretary said in a statement: “Schools and school districts continue to tell us that there is still too much food waste and that more common-sense flexibility is needed to provide students nutritious and appetising meals. We listened and now we’re getting to work.”
Many riled against the decision, especially since it was the ex-FLOTUS’ birthday.

One Twitter user said: “Trump will never have the respect and prestige that Michelle and Barack Obama enjoy in the whole world!
“Trump is a crazy man!”
Another wrote: “The whole world already knows Donald Trump is petty-minded and spiteful.”
A separate user said: “When Trump is gone we will put it all back together.
