    Trump has again lashed out at his former rival in the US presidential election and advised her to "get on with" her life and "give it another try" in 2020 after she had accused him of "disgracing the office."

    US President Donald Trump has called Hillary Clinton the "worst (and biggest) loser of all time, adding that she "just can't stop." While it hasn't been immediately clear to what exactly the US leader has been referring when slamming the former secretary of state, the accusations came less than a day after Clinton blasted Trump over alleged sexual misconduct.

    While Hillary Clinton is yet to respond to Trump's words, the president's sudden weekend tweet has immediately caused vivid reaction among social media users. While few have lauded Trump's statement, many seemed to be puzzled over it and have criticized the tweet.

    On Friday, Clinton has slammed Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Ray Moore for not "accepting responsibility" and "apologizing" over alleged sexual misconduct in an interview with New York’s WABC radio.

    "Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump, who have done neither," Clinton has stated, adding that the US president "has disgraced the office."

    When asked whether she admired anything in Trump's policies, Clinton responded, "The answer is absolutely no," adding that she "didn't think he’d be as bad as he turned out to be."

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations

    While Trump last year made headlines with his controversial "grab 'em by the p****y" remark he told American radio and TV host Billy Bush in a private conversation on a bus, which has been widely criticized, Moore was accused by several women of groping them when they had been teenagers.

    While fellow Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan said that the allegations against Moore were "credible" and called on him to "step aside," the nominee for the December 2017 US Senate Special Election in Alabama has denied the claims and questioned the veracity of one of his accusers. The scandal has already been taking toll on Roy Moore’s chances of being elected, with a new poll reflecting a 12-point drop in public support since the scandal broke.

    This week also has marked a scandal surrounding Democratic Senator Al Franken, who was also accused of sexual misconduct, but later apologized saying that his behavior was inappropriate. While Trump has bashed Franken for sexual abuse, he has kept silent about fellow Republican nominee Moore, prompting criticism online.
