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

Clinton confirmed on Monday that she would not seek the presidency in 2020, which would have been her third bid for the White House.

“I’m not running,” she told News 12 Westchester, noting that she would continue “working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”

“I want to be sure that people understand I’m going to keep speaking out,” she added. “I’m not going anywhere. What’s at stake in our country, the kinds of things that are happening right now, are deeply troubling to me.”

Sources close to Clinton say the 2016 Democratic nominee will seek to be an active presence in the race by fundraising, working to unify a splintered party and even making an endorsement when the time is right.

Clinton was widely expected to beat Trump in 2016 but suffered a shocking Electoral College loss despite winning the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

She also ran in 2008, when she was defeated by former President Obama in the Democratic primary.

The former secretary of State has largely remained out of the limelight since her 2016 defeat but has occasionally voiced criticism of the Trump administration.
