The now-president Donald Trump coined the phrase “crooked Hillary” during his campaign against Hillary Clinton, a Democrat. Clinton suffered from severe distrust from voters during the campaign, which stemmed from a number of controversies surrounding her work with the Clinton Foundation and her term as Secretary of State.
