The lengths President Trump will go to just to stroke his own ego…
According to new reports, the president demanded his staff hang a map “somewhere in the West Wing” that shows his 2016 Electoral College victory from last November.
Trey Yingst, a reporter with One America News Network, tweeted the following image Thursday morning with the following caption:
‘Spotted: A map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing.’

Trump has long touted his Electoral College victory, even going so far as to say he also won the popular vote if you take away those who “voted illegally.”
‘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.’

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “trumped” The Donald by nearly 2.9 million votes, with 65,844,954 votes (48.2 percent) to his 62,979,879 (46.1 percent), according to the final election results from all 50 states and D.C.
Let’s just take a second to remember that since he first claimed that the former secretary of state won the popular vote because of voter fraud, he’s yet to offer up any evidence to substantiate his bogus claim.
It’s since been proven, by a fact-check from ABC News, that voter fraud is “very” or “extremely rare.” In fact, officials from the most populated states — New York, California, and Florida — said that they had not discovered any cases of voter fraud in the 2016 election.
The map, as one Twitter user pointed out, may be more red than blue, but it’s also a reminder that people in Trump’s hometown despise him.
‘trump hanging up an election results map in the west wing is really funny tho bc it’s a reminder that the people of his hometown hate him’
According to new reports from ABC News, Trump is expected to sign an executive order Thursday to establish a commission to review allegations of voter fraud and voter suppression throughout the 2016 presidential election.
The Presidential Commission on Election Integrity will reportedly be run by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. The purpose of the bipartisan commission will be to determine the vulnerabilities in the U.S.’s voting system, and how said vulnerabilities effect “improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting.”
