Hillary Clinton Shuts Down Donald Trump After He Bashes Barack Obama: ‘Delete Your Account’ — Here’s How He Responded

UPDATE: Several hours later, Trump responded to Clinton’s viral tweet with his own comeback: “How long did it take your staff of 823 people to think that up–and where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted?”

ORIGINAL STORY: File this under “Nah.” Hillary Clinton wasn’t having any of Donald Trump’s social-media trolling on Thursday, June 9, after the Republican presidential candidate slammed both her and President Barack Obama in one tweet.

“Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary,” Trump, 69, wrote. “He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!”

Seven minutes later, someone from Clinton’s camp responded with a mic drop: “Delete your account.”

The Internet immediately exploded with memes at the bold back-and-forth between the presidential candidates.

As previously reported, Obama formally endorsed Clinton, 68, as the candidate who is the best person to take over the Oval Office earlier in the day.

“I want to congratulate Hillary Clinton on making history as the presumptive Democratic nominee for president of the United States,” Obama said in a video message. “I know how hard this job can be, that’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.”

Obama, 54, added that Clinton has “the courage, the compassion and the heart to get the job done.”

“And I say that as somebody who had to debate her more than 20 times,” he said. In 2008, the pair were political rivals for the White House, but later came together in 2009 when Clinton accepted Obama’s invitation to serve as the United States’ secretary of state.

The outgoing president also had kind words for Clinton’s Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders, whom he met at the White House on Thursday.

“I had a great meeting with him this week. I thanked him for shining a spotlight on issues like economic inequality and the outsized influence of money in our politics and bringing young people into the process,” Obama said after praising Clinton. “Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders may have been rivals during this primary, but they’re both patriots who love this country and they share a vision for the America that we all believe in.”
