The former secretary of state and two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is sparking speculation that she might run again in 2020.
The latest round of speculation came after President Donald Trump, in a tongue-in-cheek tweet on Tuesday, encouraged her to jump into the Democratic primary contest in order to take down “Uber Left” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” the president tweeted.
“Only one condition,” he added.
I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton 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!

Clinton, who’s making the rounds on TV to publicize the new book she co-wrote with her daughter, Chelsea, was asked about the tweet Tuesday on “PBS NewsHour.”
“It truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me,” Clinton replied. “But this latest tweet is so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my e-mails. We all know that. So he’s either lying or delusional or both.”
Hillary Clinton says she can ”beat Trump again.” Obviously she is smoking the good stuff. In order to beat him ”again, ” You would have had to have beat him before. If you beat him, you would be in the Oval Office at the moment. Get off the dope! #TCOT #MAGA https://t.co/UXDnlpApsG

“There was no subpoena, as he says in a tweet this morning,” she added.
Then she suggested that perhaps she should try to run against Trump again.
“So maybe there does need to be a rematch,” Clinton replied. “Obviously, I can beat him again.”
But Clinton did not even beat Trump the first time.
Though the former secretary of state won the popular vote in the 2016 election, she lost the Electoral vote, which actually determines who becomes president, by a final tally of 304-227.
