ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama took a swipe at President Donald Trump's tweeting habit telling young people it's not okay to "tweet every thought." Obama, discussing her upbringing and public service, urged young leaders attending her husband's invitation-only summit in Chicago to be cautious of the power of social media. "You don't tweet every thought," she said, drawing laughter. "I'm not talking about anybody in particular," she added, also without mentioning Trump, who has used Twitter continually to blast out opinions. Former President Barack Obama held his foundation's first summit in Chicago for 500 hand-picked young leaders from 60 nations and 27 U.S. states to share ideas and hear speakers, including Britain's Prince Harry, along with artists, chefs, activists and politicians. The conference was held on the South Side of Chicago, where the Obama Foundation plans to build a presidential center near the neighborhoods where Obama was a community organizer and which helped propel his political career.
