Donald Trump Jr fires broadside at Hillary Clinton over 2016 birthday tweet

The son of the US president called her 'arrogant and entitled'

Friday, October 27, 2017

Donald Trump Jr has taken a dig at Hillary Clinton over a tweet she posted in 2016. 

Last year, on her birthday ahead of the presidential election, the former Democratic candidate posted a tweet with a picture of herself as a young girl, and the text accompanying it said "Happy Birthday to this future President."

On Thursday, Clinton's 70th birthday, the firstborn son of Donald Trump posted a screenshot of this tweet, saying it was a sign of her "arrogance and entitlement". 

Trump Jr made clear that was the reason why her presidency never would have happened."

However there were some best wishes from other people, including Clinton's husband Bill and activist John Lewis, who said "happy birthday, Madame President" - completely ignoring Donald Trump's election victory.

Clinton has attributed her defeat in the 2016 election, in part, to Russian interference.
