Hillary Clinton is continuing to raise the specter of running for president a third time.
Clinton taunted President Trump on Tuesday, telling PBS, “Maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously I can beat him again.”
Trump defeated Clinton, 304 electoral votes to 227, but that provocative statement comes on the heels of a tweet teasing another run.
Trump urged Clinton to get into the race to “steal it away” from Elizabeth Warren, as she did with Bernie Sanders in 2016.
“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.” Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting ‘C’ Subpoena!”
Don’t tempt me. Do your job.

“Don’t tempt me,” Clinton responded. “Do your job.”
Clinton’s tweet comes during an extensive media tour to promote a new book. During an appearance on The View, she teased a run.
Abby Huntsman told Clinton her sister is “convinced” that the failed 2016 candidate will get into the 2020 race “in six months.”
She was clearly uncomfortable with the question, and was thinking of what to say, don’t know how to read it, looks like she’s holding something back, and Chelsea looks like she doesn’t know what to say.

“Six months?” an aghast Hillary responded, looking at her watch, seemingly indicating as though that would be too late.
Shaking her head as the other hosts asked if she was going to announce a campaign, “I would come here if I did,” Clinton responded, “I would quickly come here.”
“That’s not a no,” Huntsman noted.
“No,” Clinton said, dismissively waving her hand. “I’ve said repeatedly no,” she said amid the awkward moment.
