US President Donald Trump has called Hillary Clinton the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. He also encouraged the Democratic Party's POTUS nominee in last year’s election to “give it another try in three years.”

Trump has slammed Clinton in a tweet, urging her to run again in 2020. “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!” the POTUS wrote.

Clinton had previously commented in relation to the sexual harassment allegations against Senator Al Franken. She appeared to compare the Minnesota Democrat’s response with that of Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore, who is accused of sexually harassing young girls when he was in his 30s.

“Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither,” Clinton told WABC Radio’s Rita Cosby. For her, Franken’s situation differs from Moore because the former apologised and vowed to "gladly cooperate" with an ethics investigation. She added it was the kind of accountability she was talking about, which she reportedly did not hear from Moore or from the POTUS.

Clinton supposedly questioned why Trump was not hurt by past allegations from women about his reported behaviours. She also appeared to cast doubt on the authenticity of Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential elections by invoking Russia's alleged meddling, which she said was one of the major contributors on the outcome. She also believed the Russians utilised “weaponised false information" in a "very successful disinformation campaign.”

The former secretary of state said in an interview with Mother Jones that she could not explain why Trump's candidacy was not affected by the accusations. Trump had denied allegations made by multiple women to the New York Times.

Clinton told WABC radio that Trump has "disgraced the office" of the presidency. She also labelled the GOP tax reform plan as a "bad policy" that's "downright cruel" to working Americans. She had called Trump many things in the past - dangerous, impulsive and divisive, The Washington Post notes. In her book, she called him a “creep” who “bragged about sexual assault.” Clinton won the popular vote in 2016 but lost the Electoral College to Trump.
