Hillary Clinton: 'Don't Tempt Me' to Run Against Trump Again

  • Executive

By: Nate James

In Brief:

After President Trump sent a taunting Tweet to Hillary Clinton, daring her to run against him again, she replied, “Don’t tempt me.”

The Background:

Hillary Clinton has been keeping her name in the news ever since she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. Clinton has blamed her election loss on several things, including, voter suppression, sexism, and fake news. She’s also called Trump an “illegitimate president.”

Trump Tweeted on Tuesday night:

“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!”

Clinton responded, “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”

DailyMail reports, “Clinton vented during a PBS NewsHour interview on Tuesday about the issue that spelled her political demise, saying that '[n]othing has been more examined and looked at than my emails, we all know that. So, he’s either lying or delusional, or both.

‘There was no subpoena as he says in a tweet this morning, so, maybe there does need to be a rematch,' she continued. And then in a stunning declaration, she deadpanned: 'I mean, obviously, I can beat him again.'”

Why It Matters:

President Trump is currently undergoing an impeachment investigation, the outcome of which has the potential to rock both sides of the political aisle. Clinton throwing her hat into the crowded Democratic 2020 presidential ring could make it easier for Trump to win again. Trump already beat Clinton once, and a new Zogby Analytics poll shows, as reported by the Washington Examiner, “Americans expect President Trump to get roughed up in a House impeachment but soldier on to win reelection, according to the latest poll on the White House crisis.”

Notable Quotes:

"I would love to see a round two between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton because I think we all remember, Sean, not too long ago, all the media said that she was going to be the next president. We see Donald Trump in the White House now."
