Obama sat down with ABC’s Robin Roberts in a series of interviews to promote her new autobiography, Becoming. In one clip, Roberts noted that former First Lady Laura Bush reached out to Obama and said that she’s just a phone call away if she needed any help. “You wrote about how you extended that same courtesy to Melania Trump,” said Roberts. “Has she reached out to you and asked for any help?”

“No,” Obama replied. “She hasn’t.”
