When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the new president-elect, the results of the election left millions of Americans wondering how it all happened. Former President Bill Clinton has since responded by giving his own thoughts, which prompted Trump to fire back on Twitter.

Trump on Twitter

Just over a week before Election Day, FBI Director James Comey announced in a letter to Congress that there would be a new review of emails potentially related to Hillary Clinton. The emails in question ended up not having to do with Clinton, but the damage had already been done.

As reported by Politico on Monday, Bill Clinton believes that Comey's announcement cost Hillary Clinton the election, which the former president elaborated on earlier this month in New York City. At the same time, Mr. Clinton also hit back at Donald Trump, saying that he "doesn't know much," while hinting that he has a "single-digit IQ." In response, Trump took to his offical Twitter account on December 20 to voice his opinion.

In a two-part message on Twitter, the former host of "The Apprentice" responded to Bill Clinton and accused the former president of lying in the process.

"Bill Clinton stated that I called him after the election. Wrong, he called me (with a very nice congratulations)," Donald Trump tweeted. "He 'doesn't know much,'" Trump continued, mocking Clinton's comments, while adding, "especially how to get people, even with an unlimited budget, out to vote in the vital swing states (and more). They focused on wrong states."

Trump offical

Despite a push from Democrats and angry liberal Americans to convince electors to change their minds, Donald Trump crossed over the required 270 electoral votes needed to become president, receiving 304 when the votes were officially cast on Monday afternoon.

While Trump is now set to be sworn in as president next month, his claim that his victory was a "landslide" is not accurate. Trump's electoral college win came in one of the tightest presidential races in history, with Hillary Clinton even winning the popular vote by 2.8 million votes.

Moving forward

Even with the backlash against him, Donald Trump was able to weather the storm and become the next commander in chief. Over the next month, the president-elect will finalize any remaining spots in his administration and cabinet, and will head to Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day where tens of thousands of protesters are planning to voice their opposition.
