Hillary Clinton responds after Trump mockingly invites her to run in 2020

By

President Donald Trump on Tuesday jokingly said Hillary Clinton should run again in next year's presidential election, but only on the condition she comes clean about "her high crimes and misdemeanors."

The story: "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!" Trump tweeted Tuesday.

Clinton responded several hours later, briefly tweeting: “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”

Though Clinton confirmed in March that she will not be running for the highest office again, her response to Trump prompted a number of reactions on Twitter.

Clinton has also supported impeachment against Trump, saying on Twitter, “The president of the United States has betrayed our country” and that he “is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free.”

A recent poll showed both former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders trailing Warren. The poll also showed all three Democratic candidates defeating Trump in a hypothetical general election face-off.

This is not the first time Clinton has prompted speculation about a possible run after categorically stating that she's out. "I’m not running, but I’m going to keep working and speaking and standing up for what I believe. I want to be sure that people understand I'm going to keep speaking out. I'm not going anywhere," Clinton said in March, according to Mediaite.

In a recent interview with PBS' Judy Woodruff, Clinton said: "So maybe there does need to be a re-match. I mean, obviously I can beat him again." But Woodruff later added the former secretary of state was "just kidding."

Prior to those comments, in an interview with CBS, Clinton blasted Trump as a "corrupt human tornado," saying of the 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns: "I believe that, look there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again. And I'm hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game."

"All of that follows the emergence of Clinton as one of the most high-profile -- and effective -- Twitter trolls of Trump. She (or whoever is running her account) regularly jabs Trump and mocks him, moves that have won her lots and lots of kudos from the liberal side of the social media world. And remember, Clinton has been around politics a long time. She knows what she's doing when she makes these jokes," writes CNN political commentator Chris Cillizza.

Cillizza argues, however, that if offered the Democratic nomination Clinton "would probably" accept it, but "that is not how nomination fights work," and the Democratic Party would likely only look on Clinton as a "trusted vote-getter," Cillizza notes.

He called it "a long, long, long, long shot that likely wouldn't work anyway because the base of the party would rebel against the idea of trying to keep the nomination from Warren."
