Donald Trump Claims He Would Still Beat Hillary In The Popular Vote

Donald Trump Claims He Would Still Beat Hillary In The Popular Vote

While President Donald Trump has said some questionable things along the way, the latest thing he tweeted yesterday is exceedingly confusing.

While Trump did win the electoral college vote, and thus won the presidency, many stories after the election reported how Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by almost 3 million votes.

Yesterday, as has become commonplace, Trump decided to take to Twitter to slam the “fake media,” but this time, dragged the popular vote into it.

“New polls out today are very good considering that much of the media is FAKE and almost always negative. Would still beat Hillary in popular vote,” he tweeted.

“ABC News/Washington Post Poll (wrong big on election) said almost all stand by their vote on me & 53% said strong leader,” he added.

It’s interesting Trump notes the Washington Post poll, as it’s seems he’s only sharing part of the story. Specifically, that article mentions the 53% statistic he quotes, but goes on to note that “most doubt his accomplishments, honesty and empathy.” In addition, that story claims that, overall, his disapproval rating is 53%.

It’s only Monday and, with his 100th day in office coming this Friday, it’s bound to be an interesting week.

  • Trump also slammed the media again on Twitter this week, detailing that “The Fake Media (not Real Media) has gotten even worse since the election. Every story is badly slanted.”

Donald Trump Calls 100 Day Standard Ridiculous

Donald Trump Calls 100 Day Standard Ridiculous

When you’re a new President of the United States of America, one of the things that the media- and the general public- tend to pay a lot of attention to is the first hundred days, and what you accomplish during that time period.

President Donald Trump‘s presidency has been anything but traditional, so we cannot say we were that surprised to see him calling out the “100 day standard” as ridiculous this morning.

Trump specifically tweeted that, “No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!” 

Regardless of his tweet, the 100th  day of his Presidency is almost upon us, and it will be interesting to see what the media notes he has accomplished- and hasn’t- in his short time in office.

It’s always interesting to see how President Donald Trump begins his morning and today was as enthralling as ever.

Trump welcomed in the day by taking to one of his indisputable favorite things- Twitter- to blame President Obama for MS-13 gangs forming.

Specifically, Trump tweeted that, “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!”

According to The Hill, the MS-13 gang was a gang that was formed by the Salvadorans in “the early 200s” and, The Hill cites the FBI for noting the gang  was “in at least 42 states by 2008.”

As The Hill mentions, Obama was not in office until 2009, so it’s definitely an interesting thing to see Trump blaming Obama’s immigration policies for the MS 13 gangs forming.

Could this be a case of alternative facts? Only time will tell.

While President Donald Trump issued an interesting barrage of tweets on Easter Sunday, this morning he returned to his favorite social media platform to put one of his favorite subjects- the media- back on blast.

“The Fake Media (not Real Media) has gotten even worse since the election,” Trump began with tweeting.

“Every story is badly slanted,” he continued.

He also added that, “We have to hold them to the truth!” 

This is definitely an interesting tweet, as Trump and his administration have so frequently been criticized in the media of not being factual in things they have said; however, it’s not a surprising tweet, as Trump has frequently criticized what he deems as “fake news.”

It’s only Monday morning, so if we’re starting off like this, it’s bound to be an interesting week.
