Trump Lies & Tweets (Electoral College votes) February 16, 2017

On Thursday, February 16, 2017,  during a press conference Donald Trump claimed the following:

that his victory over Hillary Clinton was 306 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232 and the biggest since Ronald Reagan’s 1984 win

That is a lie.

His Electoral College victory actually ranks 46th out of 56 presidential elections. In fact, Barack Obama won more electoral votes in 2008, and George H.W. Bush won more in 1988.

So, Donald Trump keeps lying… and, we keep counting.

“A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”... Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Germany’s Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment
