Hillary Clinton on Friday celebrated Twitter’s permanent ban of President Donald Trump’s personal account, less than two weeks before his term expires.
More than four years ago, on June 9, 2016, Clinton responded to one of then-candidate Donald Trump’s tweets, calling on him to delete his account. On Friday, she retweeted that years-old message, adding a checkmark:
