This from the Washington Post: Without evidence, Trump tells lawmakers 3-5 million illegal ballots cost him the popular vote:
Two people familiar with the meeting [with congressional leaders on Jan. 23] said Trump spent about 10 minutes at the top of the gathering with Republican and Democratic lawmakers rehashing the campaign. Trump also told them that between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused him to lose the popular vote.
The discussion about Trump’s election victory and his claim that he would have won the popular vote was confirmed by a third person familiar with the meeting.
Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.8 million votes.
Think about it. If Trump were just cynically trying to manipulate a gullible base. a closed forum with congressional leaders is not the place he would choose to make the claim. He said it where and when he said it because he actually believes it.
Pontius Pilate, Mr. What is Truth? No. Don Quixote? Yes
Trump is rapidly becoming the crazy uncle in the back bedroom.
