U.S. President Donald Trump blasted his former presidential rival Hillary Clinton for blaming her electoral loss on various factors including, Russia, fake news, Democratic National Committee's data operation and anti-American forces.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC," tweeted the President.

Speaking at the annual Code Conference in California, Clinton pointed that Russia, which she believes orchestrated a vast campaign of fake news to discredit her candidacy in the last year's presidential polls, as one of the reasons for her defeat.

Clinton also claimed she was treated unfairly for accepting millions of dollars in speaking fees from Wall Street firms.

She also admitted that former FBI Director James Comey's decision on 28 October 2016, to send a letter to Congress about her email controversy was simply devastating.

"I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that's not why I lost. Anti-American forces are going after our economy and they are going after our unity as a nation," she said at conference.
