Liar-In-Chief: Trump Once Again Says Voter Fraud Cost Him Popular Vote

Without any evidence, President Trump told Capitol Hill leaders he only lost the popular vote because millions of people voted illegally.

Trump Repeats Lie

Donald Trump may have won the election and become the president, but he still seems hung up on smaller things — like the crowd size at his inauguration or the fact that he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by a wide margin.

Soon after the election, when third party candidate Jill Stein filed for a recount in Wisconsin and the Clinton campaign announced it would join the effort, the billionaire baron called it a “scam” and posted a series of ridiculous tweets.





Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.8 million.

During a recent meeting with congressional leaders from both parties, the president once again made the unsubstantiated claim about voter fraud, insisting the only thing that kept him from winning the national popular vote was millions of illegal ballots.

“Two people familiar with the meeting said Trump spent about 10 minutes at the top of the gathering with Republican and Democratic lawmakers rehashing the campaign,” wrote The Washington Post. “Trump also told them that between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused him to lose the popular vote. The discussion about Trump's election victory and his claim that he would have won the popular vote was confirmed by a third person familiar with the meeting.”

Trump additionally suggested the millions of illegal votes were actually cast by undocumented immigrants (the people he wants to deport and/or incarcerate in large numbers), according to The New York Times.




The truth is the real estate developer-turned-politician has no evidence to back up his voter fraud claims. He spent a major part of his election campaign trying to brainwash his supporters about “rigged election” and insisting that the biased system supported his Democratic rival, Clinton.

However, officials across the country claim there is no indication of illegal ballots — and certainly not millions of them.

Maybe it's time for President Trump to let go of his weird obsession with popular vote and crowd count and instead focus on the bigger picture stuff, like introducing a replacement for the healthcare plan he and his cronies are dismantling.
