Hillary Clinton trolls Donald Trump with Kennedy parody letter

Donald Trump's distinct communication style has earned him both fans and foes, but what if previous Presidents spoke the way he did?

His former political opponent Hillary Clinton has rewritten history, giving us a glimpse of how the man who beat her to the White House may have handled the Cuban missile crisis.

Last week a letter Trump wrote to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was revealed to the public. The message was very different to typical correspondence between world leaders - Trump had written it in the same style he speaks and tweets, with lots of aggression, exclamation points and chummy use of slang.

"Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool! I will call you later," he concluded.

The letter was ridiculed by social media users and late night hosts alike. TWEETS

Not one to miss out on the fun, Clinton has come up with a parody of the now-infamous letter - only this one was written from the perspective of John F Kennedy.

The letter transposes Trump's signature bluster onto a fictional piece of correspondence between Kennedy and former leader of the Soviet Union Nikita Khrushchev. It's dated October 16 1962, during the height of the nuclear confrontation.

"Don't be a dick, ok?" the fictional 'Kennedy' writes. "Get your missiles out of Cuba. Everybody will say 'Yay! Khrushchev! You're the best!' But if you don't everybody will be like 'what an asshole' and call your garbage country 'The Soviet Bunion'.

"You're really busting my nuts here," it continues. Give you a jingle later. Hugs."

Clinton posted the letter on Twitter with the caption 'Found in the archives...' It's unknown whether she wrote the satirical message or if another comedic genius is behind it.

Many people loved the joke, applauding Clinton for "gold medal trolling", a sport she's indulged in several times since losing the 2016 election.

Others were less amused, telling her to "go back to the woods" and "for the love of god please stop".
