US President-elect Donald Trump has asseverated that his victory in the popular vote category on 8th November "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally".
The Republican winner, winning all the vital Electoral College count, rendered no evidence to support his claim.
All this followed post Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s camp stated that it will back a vote recount in Wisconsin as initiated by a Green Party candidate. Clinton won around two million votes more than Trump in the popular vote segment.
Nevertheless, Donald Trump transcended the needed 270 electoral votes in order to win the presidency and this was solely based on the state-by-state contests.
Trump tweeted, "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."
Moreover in his further tweets, the Republican wrote, "It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than in the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4 states instead of the 15 states that I visited.""I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!"
Trump went ahead and accused “serious voter fraud” in Virginia, California, and New Hampshire – states which were won by Clinton.
The president-elect reminded his Democratic rival Clinton that she had already admitted defeat and also published statements from the presidential debates in which she had advocated the acceptance of the poll outcome.
However, at the time of the debate, Clinton was reacting to Trump’s denial to respect the outcome. Trump’s tapering win against Clinton in Wisconsin is where the recount of the votes was initiated last week by Jill Stein, a Green Party candidate.
Dr Stein also wants recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania, citing "statistical anomalies". He wants to be sure that computer hackers did not tweak the poll in favour of Trump.
The US government has stated that Russian state actors were reason behind the hacks on the Democratic National Committee, a claim which was otherwise denied by Moscow.
Clinton’s campaign stated that it will be part of the Wisconsin’s recount. Her campaign’s general counsel, Marc Elias said that there was no evidence to terminate the election has been sabotaged, however "we have an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton to participate in ongoing proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported".
