Tomi Lahren on Hillary's 'Mean Girls' Tweet to Trump: Dems Are the Ones With an 'Obsession'
Hillary Clinton's refusal to "close the door" on a 2020 presidential run is a positive for President Trump and the Republican Party, according to Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren.
Clinton made headlines Monday when she told a local New York news channel that she would not run for president in 2020.
But late Tuesday, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted that she spoke with a person close to the former secretary of state. The unnamed source said Clinton was not trying to "be emphatic and close the door on running" with the comment and was apparently "surprised" at the reaction.
The person also says she is extremely unlikely to run, but that she remains bothered that she’s expected to close the door on it when, say, John Kerry isn’t. She has told her team she is waiting at least to see the Mueller report. 2/2

President Trump responded to the initial story that Clinton was not running by saying the two-time presidential candidate would be "sorely missed."
“(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!

Clinton appeared to respond to Trump's comment with a gif from "Mean Girls," asking, "Why are you so obsessed with me?"

On "Fox & Friends" Wednesday, Tomi said it's understandable that Trump would be disappointed if he doesn't get to run against Clinton again.
"I think that she would be a very easy win for him, but then again, I think that all the Democrats that are lined up will also be a very easy win for him," she said.
She added that Clinton "does a service" for Republicans by continuing to speak out and stay in the public eye.
As for Clinton suggesting that Trump is obsessed with her, Tomi noted that Clinton can't seem to give a speech or make an appearance without mentioning the president.
In a speech on Sunday, Clinton said that the U.S. is facing a "full-fledged crisis in our democracy," claiming that racist and white supremacist views are being lifted up by the White House.
Tomi argued it's not just Clinton but Democrats in general who obsess over Trump and make their opposition to his a presidency a focal point.
"If you think about it, when have they ever been able to do anything or advocate for any policy position that wasn't anti-Trump?"
