US President Donald Trump has said that his former Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, lost the 2016 presidential election because “she was a terrible candidate” but she still refuses to accept it.
Axar.az reports citing PressTV.
"Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook and even Dems and DNC," Trump wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.
Trump made the remarks after Clinton blasted the Democratic National Committee's data operation during a conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, claiming that she "inherited nothing" from her party after she became its presidential nominee.
"I mean, it was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong," she said. "I had to inject money into it."
Since winning the November 8 election, Trump has repeatedly criticized Democrats and Clinton for refusing to take responsibility for her stunning defeat.
He has also stated that this hullabaloo about the alleged collusion between his campaign and the Russian government is an attempt by Democrats and their sympathizers to place blame for his electoral win. Trump fired FBI chief James Comey last month accusing him of plotting against him.
“Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. and how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News," Trump said Tuesday.
Last week, Clinton, former secretary of state, said Trump’s decision to fire Comey amounts to “obstruction of justice” and will lead to his “impeachment.”
She called Comey’s dismissal a step towards authoritarianism. “When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society.”
Prior to the November 8 vote, Comey led a controversial probe into Clinton’s use of a personal server to exchange government emails while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
After the election, Comey began investigating Trump’s alleged ties to Russia as well as a series of cyber attacks against Clinton’s campaign, which Democrats claimed were conducted by Russian hackers.
