Earlier today, presumptive Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of current President Barack Obama. Here is the video of Obama’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton:

Obama said he doesn’t think there has ever been so qualified for the office of President of the United States as Hillary Clinton.

Less than an hour after that endorsement was announced, presumptive Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump weighed in on the nomination via Twitter with the following tweet:

Now, this is fairly par for the course for Trump. He has been an outspoken Twitter user for sometime now and it makes sense that he would use the platform to attack his opponent.

However, Clinton took the opportunity to shoot back a quick, direct, and now viral response to Trump:

The tweet was retweeted tens of thousands of times in a matter of mere minutes.

Users on Twitter were quick to point out that perhaps the Clinton camp shouldn’t be so quick to talk about deleting anything given the current FBI investigation into Clinton’s deleted State Department emails.

The tweet was likely sent by a Clinton staffer, as the account indicates that tweets from Clinton herself are signed with “-H”.

Will this become the norm this election? Will the two main candidates (or at least their advisors) for President of the United States, for the first time, use a public social media conversation with each other during an active campaign?

We know one thing, Twitter is on the edge of its seat waiting for Trump’s response.
