Donald Trump Jr. fired back at Hillary Clinton while encouraging her to keep talking because every time she does, “we win.”
President Donald Trump’s son suggested the failed presidential nominee “sit this one out” in response to her tweet on Thursday, calling attention to the money the Clinton campaign funneled into opposition research firm Fusion GPS to compile the infamous Trump dossier by ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.
“You should really sit this one out,” Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday. “Then again, keep going. Every time you talk we win. We appreciate the support.”
Clinton had earlier blasted the president who accused her of colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election as he spoke at a rally in Erie, Pa., on Wednesday.
“Well, if you look at it, when you think of it, there was collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia. There was collusion,” Trump said. “There was a lot of collusion with them and Russia and lots of other people by the way.”

“Seriously, you asked Russia to hack me on national television,” Clinton fired back in a tweet which prompted Trump Jr.’s response.
Clinton seemed to be referring to Trump’s comments in July 2016 during the presidential election campaign when he said: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”
Trump Jr. also called out MSNBC as a “total joke” for reporting that the president accused Clinton “without evidence.”
You’re kidding right? “Without evidence???”
I guess the $12,000,000.00 + her campaign and the DNC spent on the fake dossier isn’t evidence.
You are a total joke MSNBC! https://t.co/ypA2Mz4tTr
