WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
- President Trump tried to provoke Hillary Clinton in a tweet that she should steal the nomination from Elizabeth Warren and run in 2020.
- He added saying he would offer her this if and only if she reexamines her email scandal.
- However, Clinton’s reply “Don’t tempt me,” was something Trump did not expect to receive.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tried to cause trouble in the Democratic primary by goading Hillary Clinton to run again for president. Her response: ‘Don’t tempt me.’
In the tweet, Trump suggested that Clinton should give the 2020 presidency a shot and rob ‘Uber Left’ Elizabeth Warren of the nomination provided Clinton readdresses her email scandal.
“The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena!’ said Trump, apparently referring to former FBI director James Comey.
Clinton replied but it wasn’t the one Trump was expecting. She told him instead, “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”
Often a recurring figure in Trump’s tweets and campaign, Clinton lost the presidential elections in 2008 and 2016. She served as U.S. secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
During her four years as secretary of state, she kept all her electronic correspondence-work-related or personal- on the same home-operated server that cannot be accessed by the government.
Although investigations have found evidence of possible violations in mishandling classified information, Comey declined to prosecute her.
According to Clinton, about 31,830 emails that were considered private and not related to her work had been discarded by her and her lawyers. The FBI later confirmed that the emails were destroyed about three weeks after a congressional subpoena ordering Clinton to turn over all pertinent documents was issued.
Trump’s persistent accusation that Clinton’s personal emails were “acid-washed” is actually erroneous. This term stemmed from the company that said they used BleachBit, a system cleaner that doesn’t use chemicals, on Clinton’s emails.
