'Covfefe'? It's a message to the Russians, quips Hillary Clinton

President Trump trolled Hillary Clinton after the former Democratic presidential nominee blamed a litany of factors - including Russia, Facebook and national misogyny - for her 2016 loss during a Wednesday forum in California.

It was in response to another message President Trump had posted which slammed Mrs Clinton, calling her "crooked" and a "terrible candidate".

Clinton has said on more than one occasion that the last-minute leaks at her expense helped sway the minds of enough voters to cost her the election.

The U.S. intelligence community has concluded that Russian Federation attempted to interfere in the election in an effort to get Trump elected, though there so far has been no evidence of collusion with the Trump team.

Asked by a moderator who those individuals might be, Clinton said: "We're getting more information about all of the contacts between Trump campaign officials and Trump associates with Russians before, during and after the election".

"Russian officials must be laughing at the USA and how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News", Trump said Tuesday. "Dump it now, '" she said.

"I also think I was the victim of the very broad assumption I was going to win".

"They covered it like it was Pearl Harbor", she said. "You could see my drop".

While the Clinton campaign heavily contested Pennsylvania, the former Secretary of State rarely visited MI and Wisconsin during the late stages of the 2016 election.

Clinton has pointed fingers before at Comey for contributing to her loss.

In other remarks, she faulted Trump as he seemed close to pulling the United States out of the landmark Paris climate accord.

"I thought it was a hidden message to the Russians", the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate joked.

"I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation".

"What I saw in this election was a deliberate effort to blow the top off.to basically say, whatever feeling you have, whatever resentment, however angry you might be, get out there and express it". "I mean it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong".
