Former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to Twitter on Friday to troll the man who defeated her in the 2016 presidential election following his recent federal indictment.

America's 45th president, former President Donald Trump, is now the first former president to be indicted by a United States federal grand jury for allegedly refusing to comply with demands to return classified documents.

It was announced Thursday that a federal grand jury indicted Trump over his alleged mishandling of the classified documents. Trump is set to appear in a federal court in Miami on Tuesday over the matter.

Clinton tweeted on Friday apparently celebrating Trump's indictment by offering up merchandise apparel that would benefit "Onward Together," a political action organization she founded in 2017.

Bringing this back in light of recent news:" Clinton said in her tweet. "Get a limited-edition But Her Emails hat and support @onwardtogether groups working to strengthen our democracy."

Clinton added a link to Onward Together's store page for a "BUT HER EMAILS" baseball cap. The hat is black with pink lettering and costs $32.

Some online found Clinton's tweet amusing while others apparently did not. One Twitter user called Clinton a "queen" for the move. Another Twitter user replied to Clinton's tweet with a photo of her husband, former President Bill Clinton, standing near Monica Lewinsky, apparently mocking her.

This is gangster idc if I get heat for it," one Twitter user said in apparent support of Clinton's tweet.
Bragging about the weaponization of the DOJ to give democrats a pass and target Republicans isn’t a great look," said KTTH radio host Jason Rantz in his tweet reply to Clinton.

Others took an opportunity to reply to Clinton and remind her that she did not win her presidential election in apparent pushback. One tweet took the image Clinton tweeted, where she is wearing a "BUT HER EMAILS" hat, and replaced the hat's words with the words "Lost to Trump."

A few users referenced Clinton's infamous email scandal, the same one she herself is referencing and mocking with the hat, and some even pushed the conspiracy theory she had something to do with the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein.

The federal indictment that Trump now faces was called "the most significant federal criminal case in the history of our country" by John P. Fishwick, Jr., a former U.S. attorney who spoke with The National Desk.

Trump himself took to his own social media platform, Truth Social, to call the federal indictment "the Greatest Witch Hunt of all time." Trump also then questioned when President Joe Biden will be indicted "for his many crimes against our Nation."

The recent federal indictment is not the only indictment Trump currently faces. The former president was also indicted in April by the Manhattan district attorney’s office on 34 counts over hush money payments he made in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal to cover up alleged affairs with both women.

Trump remains the frontrunner for the Republican Party's 2024 presidential nominee race. Former Harvard Law School professor and New York Times bestseller Alan Dershowitz claims that the federal indictment and subsequent trial will more than likely affect the presidential race no matter what ends up happening.

There’s no good answer," Dershowitz said. "If [the trial is] sooner, it will affect the primaries. If it’s later, it will affect the elections. If there’s already been an election, that would change things, as well.”

Trump's appearance in federal court in Miami on Tuesday is set for 3 p.m.
