Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday fired back at likely Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for saying his offensive remarks and erratic style made him unqualified for the White House.

Taking to Twitter early in the morning, Mr. Trump said that it was Mrs. Clinton who was not qualified to be president and that her Democratic primary rival Sen. Bernard Sanders agreed.

“I said that Crooked Hillary Clinton is ‘not qualified’ to be president because she has ‘very bad judgement’ — Bernie said the same thing!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

Mrs. Clinton called Mr. Trump unqualified during a CNN interview Thursday.

“The kinds of positions he is stating and the consequences of those positions, and even the consequences of his statement, are not just offensive to people, they are potentially dangerous,” she said. “I know how hard it is to do this job, and I know we need steadiness as well as strength and smarts in it. And I have concluded he is not qualified to be president of the United States.”

Mr. Trump’s tweets came fast and furious.

He hit Mrs. Clinton for not having the wherewithal to sit at the big desk:

“Crooked Hillary has zero imagination and even less stamina. ISIS, China, Russia and all would love for her to be president. 4 more years!”

Mr. Trump blamed her for contributing to the “mess” in world when she served as secretary of state under President Obama.

“Look where the world is today, a total mess, and ISIS is still running around wild. I can fix it fast, Hillary has no chance!” he tweeted.

He continued: “Crooked Hillary Clinton looks presidential? I don’t think so! Four more years of Obama and our country will never come back. ISIS LAUGHS!”

Mr. Trump also taunted Mrs. Clinton for continuing to struggle against Mr. Sanders.

“Crooked Hillary can’t even close the deal with Bernie — and the Dems have it rigged in favor of Hillary. Four more years of this? No way!” Mr. Trump tweeted.
