Hillary tells Trump not to tempt her after he asks her to 'steal' 2020 nomination from Elizabeth Warren: 'Do your job'
The president also added that Clinton should enter the race only on the "condition" that she revisits her email scandal and explains "her high crimes and misdemeanors."
President Donald Trump, on Tuesday, attempted to rankle the Democratic primary by inviting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to make a third attempt at the presidency in 2020. However, shortly after he wrote the tweet directed at Clinton, the 2016 presidential contender shot back at Trump, saying: "Don't tempt me."
Trump, in his tweet, said that Clinton should try to "steal" the nomination from one of the Democratic 2020 frontrunner, Elizabeth Warren. The president also added that Clinton should enter the race only on the "condition" that she revisits her email scandal and explains "her high crimes and misdemeanors."
"I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. 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!" the president tweeted.
Don’t tempt me. Do your job.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 8, 2019
Clinton, who won the popular vote in 2016 elections against Trump, swiftly replied to his tweet, saying: "Don’t tempt me. Do your job." The former first lady has attempted to run for the presidency twice, in 2008, and 2016, winning the Democratic nomination in the latter bid.
Although Trump won the 2016 elections, he continues to mention Clinton frequently in his tweets, claiming that she "acid-washed" emails, which the former secretary of state says were personal. Although she was held accountable for flouting federal record-keeping laws, the FBI eventually concluded that her alleged criminal conduct was not prosecutable.
Trump, ever since coming under scrutiny for his call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, has claimed that Clinton violated the law and federal officials spared her. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi initiated an impeachment inquiry against Trump last month after a whistleblower, a CIA agent, lodged an official complaint alleging that Trump abused his power to seek favor from the Ukrainian leader. A transcript of the call released by the White House showed that the president asked the Ukrainian leader to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden who is the Democratic frontrunner of the 2020 elections.
