Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was quick to snap back at President Donald Trump after he jested on her email scandal and called for her to run again in the 2020 presidential race.
“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” Trump tweeted. “Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”
“Don’t tempt me. Do your job,” Clinton shot back on Twitter.
“Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously I can beat him again,” Clinton said in an interview with PBS “NewsHour” host Judy Woodruff.
However, Clinton said earlier this year that she will not be running for president, though it is speculated that she is attempting to garner attention and drive book sales, as she has previously said on several occasions that she had no intention of running again, according to BizPacReview.
“I’m not running, but I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe,” she said to News 12 Westchester in March.
According to The Hill, Clinton has been increasingly voicing her criticism of Trump recently since the House launched its formal impeachment inquiry amid a whistleblower complaint. The complaint, alleging that Trump had solicited foreign help in the 2020 election from Ukraine where he supposedly asked the nation to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a political rival and Democratic front-runner.
Fox News contributor Michael Goodwin jested at Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential run and pointed out that she needs to “get over it already,” if she doesn’t plan running again.
“[Clinton] lost the election fair and square and even the ‘resistance’ movement no longer pretends otherwise,” Goodwin wrote, noting that the American left-wing political movement protesting the presidency of Donald Trump has died down since Trump came into office.
Pointing out Clinton’s “hypocrisy” regarding what Trump said in the third presidential debate of 2016 that he might not accept the election results, Goodwin used Clinton’s own words to highlight that she is in fact the one “still contesting the results and ‘talking down our democracy.’”
“Yet nearly three years after the votes were counted and the states were called, and months after Robert Mueller found no collusion with Russia, she still has the nerve to insist that Trump is an ‘illegitimate president.’”
“Her refusal to accept Trump’s election can mean only one thing: In her own mind, she won the election and she’s the real president,” Goodwin wrote.
