Agency report

President-elect Donald Trump took on Bill Clinton Tuesday in a new tweet attack, after the former president questioned his intelligence.

In an impromptu discussion at a book store in upstate New York earlier this month, Clinton said this when asked if he thought Trump was smart: “He doesn’t know much. One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”

Clinton made the remarks December 10. They were reported by a local newspaper editor who happened to be present. The comments were later published Monday by Politico.

Clinton also said the president-elect called him after the election and sounded surprisingly cordial after such a bitter campaign.

President-elect responds

The real-estate billionaire fired back Tuesday morning.

“Bill Clinton stated that I called him after the election. Wrong! He called me with a very nice congratulations. He ‘doesn’t know much’ …”

Trump added: “especially how to get people, even with an unlimited budget, out to vote in the vital swing states ( and more). They focused on wrong states”.

During the campaign, Trump bluntly attacked Clinton over his marital infidelities and said Hillary Clinton was just as bad for putting up with it, calling her an “enabler” of those indiscretions.
