Donald Trump either truly has no idea how determined Americans were to oust him from the White House or he just refuses to accept it, and it’s probably a bit of both that led him to accuse Joe Biden of cheating in the 2020 presidential election on Wednesday, insisting that Biden could not have won more votes than Obama did in 2012. He’s also incredulous that Fox News has dropped him like a hot potato now that he’s no longer beneficial to them, and because it’s just common sense to know that Trump lost the election and his claims otherwise are just nonsense.
In 2008, Barack Obama won the presidential election against John McCain by 365 electoral college votes to McCain’s 175. Obama won the popular vote by close to ten million ballots. In 2012, Obama won 332 electoral college votes to Romney’s 206, winning the popular vote by nearly five million votes. He won both the popular vote and the electoral college twice.
Trump, on the other hand, has lost the popular vote twice. In fact, Joe Biden won exactly as many electoral college votes as Trump did in 2016 even though he won the popular vote by more than seven million ballots, a testament to the fact that the electoral college is long outdated. It does not matter that Trump got around 75 million votes when Joe Biden got 81 million and won more states than Trump did. Fox News knows this and they know that Trump is no longer useful to them because of it.
Twitter knows Trump lost, too, and were quick to remind him. Read some of their comments below:
