Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, liberals have been whining about how “unfair” the result is since she won the popular vote by 2.8 million votes. Now, however, something has been revealed about her popular vote “win” that proves Trump really does deserve to be president.
Daily Mail reported that Trump actually WON the popular vote when taking out the heavily liberal states of California and New York.
Clinton won California by 4.2 million votes and New York by 1.6 million, giving her a 5.8 million vote advantage from these two states alone, which is more than twice the size of her overall edge across the nation. Taking out these states, Trump won the popular vote in the rest of the country by 3 million votes.
Trump issued a tweet on Wednesday slamming Clinton for the way she strategized her campaign.
“Campaigning to win the Electoral College is much more difficult & sophisticated than the popular vote. Hillary focused on the wrong states!” he wrote.
“I would have done even better in the election, if that is possible, if the winner was based on popular vote – but would campaign differently,” he added. “I have not heard any of the pundits or commentators discussing the fact that I spent FAR LESS MONEY on the win than Hillary on the loss!”
Trump ended Election night with 306 electoral votes compared to Clinton’s 232. When the Electoral College convened on Monday, Clinton lost five of these votes, bringing her total to 227.
