Donald Trump Says Hillary Clinton's '2 Million Vote Edge' A Work of Fraud

By JC Santos

According to US President-Elect Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton did not have 2 million votes that would have defeated him if not for the electoral college. He said millions of people voted illegally during the presidential election to bring up the number of votes against him.

US President-Elect Donald Trump said the belief in the 2 million vote advantage Hillary Clinton was from "crybabies." In Twitter, According to US News, Trump said that he won the popular vote "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally" — a claim that is without proof. Later in the evening, he said that there is "serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California."

State officials from all over the country are recounting the votes from Election Night as the numbers during the fateful day did not prove completely that Donald Trump ultimately won all voters in the country.

According to The Atlantic — referring to the information collected from the Cook Political Report — more votes were cast in the Clinton/Democratic-sided California, Washington and New York. The "popular" number of votes or individual votes by voters themselves could not win the Electoral College. Cook Political Report Editor David Wasserman said, "We probably have about 7 million votes left to count.

Trump's statement is further reinforcement for his stance that he has no faith in polls and surveys -- indicating democratic conspiracies on polls and even the vote-counting itself. Donald Trump said, "When the polls are even, when they leave them alone and do them properly, I'm leading."

In the United States, the voting system is a bit different from other democratic countries specifically because of the number of states that chooses its leader. It has a series of primary elections per state to determine the official presidential candidate. The more the candidate wins a state contest, the more likely they can win to become the official presidential candidate.
