2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton responded Tuesday to President Donald Trump’s Twitter invite for her to jump into the 2020 presidential race.
Trump tweeted Tuesday that “Crooked Hillary Clinton” should join the race “to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren.” He added that she could only re-enter after explaining “her high crimes and misdemeanors,” including “how & why she deleted 33,000 Email AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”
Clinton responded to Trump’s invite on Twitter later in the day, writing “Don’t tempt me.”
The House of Representatives opened up an official impeachment inquiry into Trump on Sept. 24, a move that the former secretary of state has come out in support of. Clinton said last month that Trump is an “illegitimate president.”
She added that she refuses to accept another four years with Trump in office as president.
“I don’t accept that or believe that [re-election] will happen,” Clinton said during an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” Sept. 29. “I believe there were many funny things that happed in my election that will not happen again, and I’m hoping that both the public and the press understand the way that Trump plays this game.”
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Monday that he has “a lot more evidence” on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s dealings with Ukraine, adding in that Biden’s son Hunter is “drug challenged.”
After telling CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday that he asked Ukraine to look into Biden,Trump’s personal lawyer went after Biden for multiple alleged offenses related to Ukraine. He tweeted Monday that Ukraine paid Hunter $3 million in laundered money while his father and Obama looked the other way.
Giuliani told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo on Monday that he would continue to unearth evidence against the Bidens.
“There’s a lot more evidence I’m going to put out,” Giuliani said on “Mornings with Maria.” “I put one out today — money-laundering. I’ve got a bigger one for tomorrow, a bigger one for the day after.”
Trump’s personal attorney added that the situation is a positive for Trump because it puts the spotlight on Biden.
“It’s the only way you can get this out,” Giuliani said. “The only way that they [the media] would cover this story is by punching the president in the face, and then the president deflects the punch — which he’s done — the story’s come way down from where it was, and then he hits ’em with a right hand that’s more powerful.”
During the conversation about Biden’s alleged conversations with Ukraine, Giuliani took a hit at Hunter, saying he is “drug challenged,” adding in that Joe Biden “fails at everything.” Hunter has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction throughout his life, according to an interview published in The New Yorker in July.
“The vice president did take Hunter Biden on Air Force Two to China,” Giuliani said. “The vice president flies his son — the guy that’s drug challenged — flies him to China.”
