U.S. President Donald Trump has attacked Hillary Clinton, his opponent in the 2016 presidential election over her new book and her recent public appearances where she made comments about the election.
Trump in a couple of tweets described Clinton as a “crooked” person who blames everybody and everything except herself, for her election loss.
The president who tweeted shortly before 11 p.m. on Wednesday said Clinton lost the election debates and lost her direction.
The president followed that up with a second tweet a few minutes later.
“The ‘deplorables’ came back to haunt Hillary. They expressed their feelings loud and clear. She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!” the president wrote.
Earlier Wednesday, Clinton reacted to remarks by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, after Sanders recently appeared on ABC’s “The View” and described Clinton’s book tour – promoting “What Happened,” Clinton’s account of her election defeat – as “sad.”
“I honestly don’t pay much attention to what she says,” Clinton said of Sanders.
Clinton’s publicity tour, coinciding with the book’s release, has included appearances on TV and news shows, and at bookstore signing events.
According to the Washington Examiner, readers have not been impressed with the book, calling it “complete garbage,” an “overrated piece of fiction,” and “hastily slapped together.”
