Trump keeps lying about the 2016 election

Trump keeps telling lies about the 2016 election which was over a year ago.

  • The Electoral College map favors the Democrats

This is not true.  In two of the last five elections, the Democrat has won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College vote.  Democrats are concentrated in urban areas and blue state.  Clinton won California by millions of votes.  Trump won Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin by fewer than 50,000 votes in each state.  That’s why he won the election.  His campaign does deserve credit for thinking they could win in those states when most people considered them solidly Democratic.

  • There were three to five million illegal votes and Trump would have won the popular vote without them

This is a lie and he has presented no evidence to support his claim.  The amount of voter fraud is extremely small.

  • Trump won an electoral college landslide

It was not a landslide.  In fact, his percentage was 46th out of 58 elections.

And of course, he denies there was Russian interference.  We’ll never know how much that influenced the election.  He certainly may have won without Russian help but it can’t be proven one way or the other.  The fact that he won should be enough but Trump has to lie to make his win seem even better.  Sad!
