WASHINGTON, D.C. — Even if former Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton has given up her aspirations of a White House run, one high profile politician certainly hopes she’ll give it another go…President Trump.
“I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, ‘I hope so!’” the president wrote Monday on Twitter (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/919914000959397888).
Clinton, however, said during an interview last month with “CBS This Morning” that her role “as a political candidate” is “over.”
“I am done with being a candidate,” Clinton said. “But I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.”
In addition to mocking his former rival, Trump also took some time to showcase his administration’s accomplishments as he nears the end of his first nine months as president.
“Since Election Day on November 8, the Stock Market is up more than 25%, unemployment is at a 17 year low & companies are coming back to U.S.,” the president wrote in another tweet.
“The U.S. has gained more than 5.2 trillion dollars in Stock Market Value since Election Day! Also, record business enthusiasm,” he bragged in yet another.
During a press conference later on Monday, Trump reiterated his hope that “crooked Hillary” changes her mind, calling out her weaknesses as a candidate. Citing the former Secretary of State’s support for NFL players protesting during the national anthem – the president called her stance on such issues just one example of “why she lost.”
