Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are attacking each other's policies in an ongoing battle on Twitter.

The current fight began when Clinton posted a graphic showing that 40 million Americans owe a combined $1.2 trillion in student debt. The Tweet was designed to tout her plan to pay for college tuition, to which she added: "Cost won't be a barrier to an education. Debt won't hold you back."

Bush responded with a graphic of his own, saying that student debt has increased "under this Democratic White House" by 100 percent.


The Clinton camp modified the graphic to say that the former Florida governor received an "F" for creating "college affordability" in the Sunshine State during his time in office.


In response, the Bush campaign "fixed" Clinton's campaign logo from an "H" that turns into an arrow pointing to the right to an arrow that points straight up, with the word "taxes" repeated several times in the background.


The Florida Republican then added in a follow up tweet that tuition in four-year universities in the Sunshine State "was the lowest of any state."


Clinton has since added a few more tweets, including a couple more graphics, in an attempt to make a case for her college tuition plan.



This isn't the first Twitter war the two presidential hopefuls have engaged in. They also battled over whether or not employees need to work longer hours.
