'She will be sorely missed': President Trump responds to Hillary Clinton announcing she isn't running for President in 2020

President Donald Trump has responded to Hillary Clinton's announcement that she won't be running for President in the 2020 election by saying she will be missed.

On Wednesday, the 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee told US media that she wouldn't be throwing her name in the ring for the United States' Commander-in-Chief at next year's election.

"I'm not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe," she told News 12 Westchester.

She said she would take an active role in the election cycle, and has already met with several of the candidates for the Democrat ticket.

"I've told every one of them, don't take anything for granted, even though we have a long list of real problems and broken promises from this administration that need to be highlighted," she said.

Her 2016 election opponent soon responded on Twitter, saying that it was a shame he couldn't run against the "crooked" woman again.

"'(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.' Aw-shucks, does that mean I won't get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed!" the President tweeted.

Ms Clinton then quickly tweeted out a classic Mean Girls GIF captioned "Why are you so obsessed with me?".

While Ms Clinton was widely predicted to beat Mr Trump in 2016, she ended up losing the Electoral College vote, despite winning the popular vote by three million.

That also wasn't her first bout for President after losing to Barack Obama for the 2008 Democratic nomination.

If Ms Clinton had decided to take another swing for the presidency, she would have been up against a large crowd who have already announced their candidacy, including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg also ruled out running on Wednesday.
