US Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had an epic response to competitor Donald Trump’s scathing remarks on her on the social media. After Clinton secured the required number of delegates to become the Democratic presidential nominee and even secured Barack Obama’s support, Trump lambasted her on Twitter by repeatedly calling her “crooked Hillary Clinton.” Later, Clinton responded with just three words – “Delete your account”, a popular comeback on social media to berate people with bad content.

This tweet was in reference to Hillary Clinton’s email controversy when it became publicly known that Clinton, during her tenure as United States Secretary of State, had used private email server for official communications, rather than the official State Department email accounts. Those emails that were later marked classified by the State Department.
That said, this is not the first time that Trump has taken to Twitter with his inglorious bashing. In 2015, Donald Trump retweeted a tweet by one of his staff members against Clinton. The tweet read, “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America”. The post was later deleted by Trump.
