Hillary Clinton described President Donald Trump as ‘obsessed’ with her continued presence in the public eye.
The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate was appearing alongside her husband, former President Bill Clinton, at a forum in Little Rock, Arkansas, commemorating the 25th anniversary of his election.
The two joked about how Trump seemed to constantly tweet about her – even months after the election – but that it wouldn’t keep her silent.
‘Apparently, you know, my former opponent is obsessed with my speaking out,’ Hillary said.
‘Apparently there was another, somebody told me, tweet today. Honestly, between tweeting and golfing, how does he get anything done? I don’t understand it. Maybe that’s the whole point.’
The commander-in-chief once again referred the former Secretary of State as ‘Crooked Hillary’ on Saturday morning in a tweet in which he called her the ‘worst (and biggest) loser of all time.’
‘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.
However, Hillary said that Trump wouldn’t silence her, adding: ‘I’m gonna keep speaking out.’
Hillary took another shot at Trump, bragging that her husband didn’t tweet about challenges facing his presidency.
‘He didn’t tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done,’ she said to applause from the audience. Twitter was founded in 2006.
Clinton, who lost the election despite winning nearly three million more popular votes, appeared to take ownership for the loss but also maintained that outside events played factors.
Less than two weeks before the election, former FBI director James Comey revealed that the bureau had reopened the probe after it uncovered additional emails on the computer of former Rep Anthony Weiner.
Hillary Clinton has said on multiple occasions that she believes Comey’s October 28 letter announcing that he was reopening the investigation was a factor that cost her the election.
However, former President Clinton said he disagrees with his wife on the impact of Comey’s letter.
He said the decision to reopen the investigation wouldn’t have been as damaging had the controversy surrounding her emails not been ‘overblown’ in the first place.
‘We have a slight disagreement about this,’ Bill said. ‘If the voters hadn’t really been told that the email…was the most important issue since the end of World War II, I doubt if the FBI director could have flung the election at the end.’
