Trump Defends Electoral College, Say THIS Would Have Happened Without It

The electoral college, where electoral representatives vote for the next president of the United States instead of individual voters voting for the president directly, is coming under fire by Hillary Clinton supporters sore over her losing the election despite winning the popular vote. They continually claim that if the electoral college didn't exist, Hillary would have been our next president.

But President-Elect Donald Trump dispelled that idea today on Twitter, arguing, "If the election were based on total popular vote I would have campaigned in N.Y. Florida and California and won even bigger and more easily."

In defense of the electoral college, he added, "The Electoral College is actually genius in that it brings all states, including the smaller ones, into play. Campaigning is much different!"

Add to that the claim by Gregg Phillips of who said on Twitter that "We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens."

If you take those 3 million illegal votes away from Hillary, then Trump easily won the popular vote as well.

What do you think of this?
