    The bad blood between longstanding rivals Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton has further deepened since President Trump tweeted a claim suggesting that Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

    Donald Trump's rival in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, has slammed the US president over his latest tweet in which he mentioned a report claiming that Google manipulated the vote to favour the Democratic candidate. Trump did not cite the report to support the allegation but referred to the watchdog group Judicial Watch in his tweet.

    Taking to Twitter herself, Clinton cast doubt over the study, which she described as debunked and based on 21 undecided voters.

    ​Earlier, President Trump called for legal action against Google over the findings of the alleged report.

    ​During the 2016 election, Trump beat Clinton on electoral votes and went on to become the 45th US president despite the fact that his Democratic rival gained almost 3 million more popular votes. In July, Trump said that he "fully intends" to seek re-election in 2020.

    President Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked Clinton for using a private email server, saying during the 2016 election campaign that she should be put in jail.
