President Donald Trump called out Hillary Clinton on Saturday for being a bad loser.
Trump wrote on Twitter that Clinton, who lost the presidential race against him in 2016, is the “worst (and biggest) loser of all time.”
“She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party,” Trump wrote.
He also hinted that he hoped Clinton would run again against him in 2020.
“Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!”
Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!

A day before Trump’s tweet, Clinton again complained about the outcome of the election in an interview with Mother Jones. Since November last year, Clinton has made multiple statements seeking to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency.
According to “Shattered,” a book telling the inside story of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, within 24 hours of her loss, Clinton’s team developed a strategy to focus on Russian hacking. This would be presented as the untold story of the election, which explained her loss as being due to interference.
However, despite a year of investigations, no proof of such collusion has been found.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who oversaw a joint intelligence agency investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the election, said under oath before Congress on May 8 that there had not been any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
High-ranking Democrats, such as Senate judiciary committee ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), have also said there is no evidence of collusion.
Instead, questions have arisen about potential collusion between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Russian government.
Last month, The Washington Post reported that the Clinton Campaign and the DNC were behind a controversial dossier on Donald Trump. Payments for the so-called “Trump dossier” were hidden from Federal Election Commission filings by routing them through a law firm and mislabeling them as legal expenses, the Post reported.
The 35-page report, marked as classified, relies almost exclusively on Kremlin-linked sources. These include a senior Kremlin official, a senior Russian official in the Russian Foreign Ministry, and a former top-level Russian intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin.
Law professor Ronald Rychlak, a leading expert on Russian disinformation operations, told The Epoch Times that the Trump dossier bears the hallmarks of a classic Russian disinformation campaign.
The Trump Dossier was actively spread among politicians and media organizations during the presidential campaign in an attempt to discredit Trump.
Court documents from the UK, where Steele and his company are currently being sued for libel by a Russian businessman mentioned in the report, show that the former spy had given briefings to journalists on the contents of the dossier.
Steele’s defense attorney says in the court documents that Steele was instructed by Fusion GPS to brief reporters of The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker, CNN, and Yahoo News on the contents of the dossier. The briefings were done in person and verbally.
Steele also “participated in further meetings at Fusion’s instruction with Fusion and The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Yahoo News,” the court documents say.
The documents show that a representative of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) met with Steele to discuss the contents of the documents. McCain admitted in a statement in January to having personally delivered the document to then-FBI Director James Comey.
“There’s clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the president to influence the election,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said on Oct. 30.
Republicans in Congress have called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special counsel to look into the issue of the dossier produced by Fusion GPS.
