President Donald Trump called his former presidential opponent Hillary Clinton the “worst and biggest loser of all time” and urged her to run again in 2020, Politico reports.
“She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!” the president Tweeted.
On Friday, Clinton said the legitimacy of Trump’s win in last year’s election was put into question due to Russian interference in the campaign and also lamented the fact that candidates cannot contest the results of elections.
Clinton further criticized both Trump and Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore for not apologizing to women accusing them of sexual harassment. She compared their refusal to apologize to Democratic Senator Al Franken’s response. Namely, Franken asked for a Senate ethics investigation into allegations that he had groped a female broadcaster in 2006, and apologized to the broadcaster Leeann Tweeden.
The White House argued on Friday that there was a significant difference between Franken who publicly admitted to his actions and apologized and President Trump who continues to deny any allegations made against him.
“I think in one case specifically, Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing, and the president hasn’t. I think that’s a very clear distinction,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
Trump also hasn’t joined other Republicans who condemned Moore after allegations made against him came to light. Sanders claimed Trump takes these allegations seriously, but leaves it to Alabama voters to make their own judgment.
