It appears that US president #Donald Trump has no worries over running for a second term in 2020. Coming after numerous reports regarding concerns for his lifespan in the Oval Office, his ongoing war of words against North Korean president Kim Jong-Un, plus further leads regarding Russia's involvement in his election campaign, he has further indicated his aspirations to stay in the White House for another four years. And guess what? He wants Clinton to run against him again.

Twitter war

Continuing to slander his rival candidate on the social media, he referred to Clinton by the nickname he christened her, 'Crooked'. This is in reference to revelations she used a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

Although continuously calling Clinton out for her actions, reports since then have revealed that his son-in-law/senior advisor Jared Kushner and son Donald Jr have both been involved in reportedly similar discrepancies. Both are also said to have taken place during Trump's 2016 election campaign and his first six months in office.

It's a no from Hillary

Hillary Clinton who's just received an honorary doctorate from Swansea University in Wales has continuously expressed no interest in running for president again. After one failed campaign for the Democratic nomination in 2008 and another for president in 2016, it's clear that for Clinton, third time is not the charm.

Despite winning the popular vote by 48.2 percent, Trump's victory came through the electoral votes, where he won with 307 votes and her with 227. Since her loss, Clinton has presented varying factors for the reasons behind this surprising turnaround. In an interview with Australia's NewsCo, she insinuated that former FBI Director James Comey's letter revealing the email scandal played a massive role along with Russian president Vladimir Putin, Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts and the ongoing patriarchal misogyny in society.

While keeping a relatively low profile in the months since Trump's move into the White House, Clinton has continued to follow political and feminist endeavours. Currently on tour promoting her new memoir What Happened, she's openly revealed her disdain towards Trump and his attitude during the election. Taking a personal and vulnerable insight into what was going on in her head during the campaign, Clinton revealed that attending Trump's inauguration was difficult for her, saying "It was very much an emotional gut punch to be there." #Politics #USA
