Donald Trump Still Believes Voter Fraud Occurred During The Election

Despite winning the electoral vote and being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump is still trying to make people believe that he won the popular vote during the election if it weren't for massive voter fraud, which is just plain not true.

This isn't the first time Trump has tried to claim that he won the popular vote if it weren't for illegal efforts and voter fraud; the official counts says that Clinton won the popular vote with a lead of nearly 3 million votes, according to Time. Overall, Clinton had a final tally of 65,844,954, while Trump came in at 62,979,879, CNN reports.

During his first meeting with congressional leadership as president on Monday, Trump said that Hillary Clinton received votes from 3 to 5 million unauthorized immigrants in the election, the New York Times reported. (This claim is false, for the record.)

 Democratic Maryland Representative Steny H. Hoyer, who attended the closed-door meeting, also told the Times that Trump made comments about his inauguration crowd being "huge" and "magnificent."

 In a news conference on Monday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that the President drew the "largest audience to ever witness an inauguration," yet photographs from Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration clearly show that Trump's turnout was nowhere near Obama's.
Back in November, Trump tweeted that "In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally." He also blamed his lack of visits to big states as reason for not getting the votes Clinton got.

 "It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4 states," he continued on Twitter, "instead of the 15 states that I visited. I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!
