In a tweet late Wednesday, Trump took aim at Clinton's newly released book about her experiences on the 2016 campaign trail, saying the former Democratic presidential nominee refuses to take responsibility for her election loss.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss," Trump wrote. "She lost the debates and lost her direction!"

"The 'deplorables' came back to haunt Hillary.They expressed their feelings loud and clear. She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!" he said in a follow-up tweet. 

Clinton hit back on Thursday, suggesting that Trump take a look at another one of her books, "It Takes a Village."

"If you didn't like that book, try this one – some good lessons in here about working together to solve problems," she tweeted. "Happy to send a copy."

Her 1996 book discusses society's collective impact on children and its shared responsibility for raising the next generation. 

Trump's social media broadside against Clinton was not unusual for the president, who frequently takes to Twitter to criticize political opponents. But until Wednesday, the president had appeared to tone down his criticism of Clinton in recent weeks.
