Presumptive Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton trolls her Republican counterpart Donald Trump on Twitter after he comments on Obama endorsing her

Washington: “Delete your account.” Hillary Clinton’s snarky tweet to her White House rival Donald Trump was among the funniest of the campaign. Almost as funny as it was awkward.

The message by the 68-year-old secretary of state – actually penned by a young staffer, a Clinton aide told AFP – was in response to the latest broadside by Trump, who had commented on how “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary,” yesterday. Social media ate it up and the message was re-tweeted 4,00,000 times and favourited 4,90,000 times.

With “Delete your account,” Clinton, who has struggled to connect with young voters, embraced quick-witted dry humour. But it also triggered comebacks from her critics over use of a private email account while she served asa top diplomat.
