"She just can't stop", he continued, "which is so good for the Republican party".

DONALD Trump has slammed political adversary Hillary Clinton in a tweet, urging her to take a repeat run for the White House in 2020.

"I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy", Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website.

"Donald Trump refused to say that he'd respect the results of this election", Clinton tweeted in October of a year ago. She has acknowledged she made mistakes but also has repeatedly pointed to Russian interference and Republican laws aimed at blunting turnout, particularly among black and Latino voters.

And now, ending India's dry spell at the global beauty pageant, Haryana Girl Manushi Chhillar has won the Miss World 2017 crown. Miss England and Miss Mexico, Stephanie Hil and Andrea Meza were the first and second runner-up respectively.

"He didn't tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done", she said of former President Clinton.

She positions herself as extremely anxious about the integrity of future elections, given what she believes happened to her, but would Clinton be so concerned with voter suppression and "weaponized misinformation" if she had won last November?

"We are a country based on laws", she said past year, "And we've had hot, contested elections going back to the very beginning, but one of our hallmarks has always been that we accept the outcomes of our elections".

The story refers to an MIT study that found more than 1 million people did not vote in 2016 because they encountered problems registering or at the polls - and that Clinton lost the election by a total of 78,000 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

During the 2016 presidential debates, Clinton often derided then-candidate Trump for his comments about the election being rigged and possibly not accepting the results.
