Even though it's been over six months since the end of the 2016 presidential campaign, the results still find their way back into the headlines. After Hillary Clinton made comments about the growing Russian scandal and its impact on her campaign, Donald Trump decided to give his thoughts on Twitter.

Election backlash

When Donald Trump first announced that he was running for president, the consensus was that his candidacy was nothing more than a joke and a cheap attempt to gain more ratings for his reality show. However, after a few months, Trump's popularity increased and he started to pull ahead of the 16 other Republicans running in the primary.

After multiple debates, Trump ended up pulling off the upset and becoming the GOP nominee at the Republican National Convention last summer. Despite Trump's primary victory, he was still considered the underdog in the general election, which is why his win over Hillary Clinton came as a surprise to everyone, including himself. Trump's defeat of Clinton has been surrounded in controversy, especially as the scandal involving Russia's election interference heats up. On Wednesday, Clinton addressed the Russian scandal while appearing at the Code Conference, which resulted in Trump lashing out during a May 31 tweet.

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton highlighted the Russian scandal as one of the main reasons for why she was defeated last November.

Clinton noted that over a dozen agencies have concluded that the "Russians ran an extensive information war campaign against my campaign to influence voters in the election." Not stopping there, Clinton went on to state that Russia was likely "guided" by forces inside the United States.

Trump on Clinton

In response to Hillary Clinton's comments at the Code Conference, Donald Trump took to Twitter to fire back.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC."

Twitter reacts

Within minutes of Donald Trump's latest Twitter attack on Hillary Clinton, social media users made sure to retaliate with their own thoughts.

"Why are you still tweeting about Hillary?" one of many Twitter users asked.

"Yeah well she won the popular vote, spells words correctly, and doesn't block people on Twitter because of having thin skin," Tony Posnanski wrote on his Twitter account. In a follow-up tweet, Posnanski added, "She wasn't a terrible candidate. You were. But with help you got it. Bravo! Can't wait for the investigation to keep going."

"And you can't admit that covfefe was a mistake rather than saying it has any meaning," Roland Scahill tweeted out, before also adding, "Also, 3 million people thought she was the better candidate than you." The negative reactions continued as the partisan rift between both sides were on display and not looking to be ending anytime soon.
