Trump and Clinton trade parting shots on Twitter after she announces she's not running

This might be the official end of the rivalry

After former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced that she would not seek the Democratic nomination in 2020, she and her 2016 rival President Donald Trump exchanged some parting shots on Twitter.

Clinton announced that she would not be running during a local news interview in New York on Monday. Trump responded Tuesday afternoon.

"'(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for the White House,'" Trump wrote. "Aw-shucks, does that mean I won't get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed!"

Clinton issued a wordless response to Trump's mocking tweet, implying that Trump was obsessed with her.

For the more than two years since Clinton's surprising loss to Trump, the two have traded jabs and insults on social media, through interviews, in speeches, and on television.

Clinton dedicated an entire book to trying to reconcile her election loss, blaming everything and everyone ranging from former FBI Director James Comey to Russian President Vladimir Putin to Sen. Bernie Sanders to the media.

Most recently, Clinton made some comments that seemed to imply that a Supreme Court decision she says "gutted the Voting Rights Act" hindered her from winning in Wisconsin, a state her campaign notably ignored in 2016.

"It made a difference in Wisconsin where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40,000 and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin, because of their age, because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a American citizen from voting."

Trump has in the past mockingly begged Clinton to run again, saying he believes she would be an easy opponent to defeat again.

"Oh, I hope Hillary runs. Is she going to run?" Trump said in 2017. "I hope. Hillary, please run again."
