Hillary Clinton isn't running in 2020—positively, definitely, for sure—except for a tantalizing tweet posted Wednesday on her Twitter account, CNN reports. After President Trump urged her to join the Democratic fray, Clinton responded: "Don't tempt me. Do your job." And while talking to Judy Woodruff on PBS Newshour, Clinton mused, "So maybe there does need to be a re-match. I mean, obviously I can beat him again." But Woodruff later tweeted that Clinton said she was joking. All of this follows earlier speculation that the former Secretary of State might run in 2020, despite her denials and Twitter-trolling of Trump. She has also apparently advised several candidates competing in the primary race, per Fox News. (Clinton's answer to a GMA question stunned her daughter.)
