President Donald Trump on Monday suggested he would win reelection in a 2020 rematch against Hillary Clinton, and said he hopes he will get the chance to go head-to-head against her again.
“I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, ‘I hope so!’” Trump tweeted Monday morning.

Trump broke through the so-called “blue wall” in a surprise electoral victory last November, winning states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Clinton won the national popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, but Trump has tried to cast doubt on that achievement, citing widespread voter fraud without presenting evidence to back up such a claim.
The billionaire businessman turned president also hinted Monday that the early months of his presidency have been a success, touting the strong performance of the stock market.
“Since Election Day on November 8, the Stock Market is up more than 25%, unemployment is at a 17 year low & companies are coming back to U.S.,” Trump wrote in another tweet.
“The U.S. has gained more than 5.2 trillion dollars in Stock Market Value since Election Day! Also, record business enthusiasm,” he added in another.
Clinton has blamed her loss on a variety of factors, including then-FBI Director James Comey, Russian meddling and her Democratic primary opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The former secretary of state recently released her memoir, “What Happened,” sharing her perspective on the 2016 race.
