Hillary Clinton trolls trump by sending out a sharply critical tweet to her White House race rival Donald Trump on Thursday that exploded the internet.
The twitter battle started when presumptive candidate Donald Trump commented on Obama’s endorsement of the former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton writing “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary” on Thursday. “He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!” .
The 68-year-old former secretary of state replied him in a tweet — actually sent by a young staffer, according to a Clinton aide — that broke the internet.
Hillary Clinton’s staff who tried to clap back at Donald Trump as fast as possible tweeted at him “delete your account” — a funny and sad choice of words.
Within hours she clicked the “OK” button, her message was retweeted 200,000 times, making it “the most retweeted tweet of the campaign!” Clinton’s social media director Alex Wall told the media.
Several were quick to point out that the suggestion was a reminder of her own tendency of deleting crucial things — like her emails containing official State Department business that she made open to hackers by using an unsecured personal account.
The email scandal has been one the politician has not been able to shake.
Republicans including Trump have attacked her actions, claiming she puts US national security at risk, and have said she deleted major emails that she did not want Americans to see.

“@HillaryClinton, If anyone knows how to use a delete key, it’s you,” the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, wrote in a stinging tweet of his own.
Trump, known for his sharp tongue on social media, returned the favour to Clinton, mocking her less-than-spontaneous attempt at hipness.
“How long did it take your staff of 823 people to think that up — and where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted?” he wrote.
Clinton turned over some 30,000 emails to State Department officials after she stepped down from the job in 2013. But she also said she deleted more than 30,000 other emails that were of a personal nature and not related to her work as secretary of state.
