Donald Trump Claims He Won the Popular Vote in 2016 'in a True Sense' and People Brought the Receipts

Fox News

Few were expecting then-candidate Donald Trump to defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the electoral college on the night of the 2016 election.

Though Trump won by one of the thinnest electoral college margins in modern American history, Clinton won the popular vote by a larger margin than any electoral college loser: over three million votes.

Not satisfied with the electoral victory, Trump went on to falsely claim that he would've won the popular vote if it weren't for millions of supposed fraudulent ballots he said were cast for Democrats.

Trump made a similar claim in a bizarre two-part interview with far-right Fox News host Laura Ingraham, the second part of which aired on Tuesday night.

Watch below.

Trump said:

"I think I did win the popular vote in a true sense. I think there was tremendous cheating in California. There was tremendous cheating in New York and other places."

There is no credible evidence that "tremendous cheating" took place in California and New York or throughout the entire country, for that matter.

Once again, people found themselves correcting Trump.







Many Twitter users say Trump's claims about 2016 foreshadow what he'll say in 2020 if he loses to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
