It took Clinton’s team just five minutes to respond to Trump’s tweet about President Obama's endorsement of Clinton, which he sent at 2:22 p.m. Clinton’s campaign fired back with "Delete your account," at 2:27 p.m. 

Trump returned fire at 4:40 p.m.

His response echoes the reply of Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, who went after Clinton over her private email server. 

“If anyone knows how to use a delete key, it’s you,” Priebus wrote.
