Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may be considering a late entry into the 2020 race as she recently instructed President Trump not to “tempt” her into running.
“Don’t tempt me,” Clinton said in response to a tweet from Trump. “Do your job,” she added.
BizPac Review reports Clinton’s tweet was in response to Trump suggesting she 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!” the president continued.
Don’t tempt me. Do your job.

While taking a lengthy hiatus from the political scene, Clinton has emerged as a vocal critic of Trump’s and recently told ABC News that she could beat him in a potential rematch.
“Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously I can beat him again,” she said per the report, alongside her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.
“Obviously, I could beat him again,” says Hillary Clinton of another showdown with Donald Trump. Obviously. He’s still recovering from the last loss. pic.twitter.com/QEjfVPbk2g

“It truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me,” Clinton continued in the interview. “This latest tweet is just so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my emails. We all know that. He’s either lying or delusional or both.”
“But just seriously, I don’t understand,” she said per BizPac Review. “I don’t think anybody understands what motivates him other than personal grievance, other than seeking adulation. I said during the campaign, there was no other Donald Trump. What you saw was what you were going to get, and I think a lot of Americans understandably thought, oh, no, that can’t possibly be the case. Once he’s in office, he will certainly moderate his behavior. Well, we see, no, he hasn’t.”

The report adds:
As a reminder to Hillary Clinton, who calls Trump an “illegitimate president,” he won the Electoral College vote, 304-227.
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown dropped a timely op-ed Saturday in the San Francisco Chronicle titled, “Who should run against Trump? How about Hillary Clinton?”
“It’s time for Hillary Clinton to come out of retirement, lace up the gloves and get back in the ring with President Trump for what would be the biggest political rematch ever,” Brown wrote.
It’s likely that Clinton is dropping hints to draw attention and drive book sales, as she has said several times that she had no intention of running again.
