Clearly, Donald Trump didn’t want to be president.
After all those claims that the election is rigged against him, Trump is still claiming that it is rigged, but for an entirely different reason.
After losing the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by a wide margin, Trump still believes the system is rigged because he should have lost.
During his interview on 60 Minutes with Leslie Stahl on Sunday night, Trump was reminded of a tweet he posted in 2012 calling the electoral college a “disaster for democracy.”
Of course, Trump just proved that by winning the 270 electoral votes required. But even though he won, he hasn’t changed his mind.
“I’m not going to change my mind just because I won,” Trump said. “But I would rather see it where you went with simple votes. You know, you get 100 million votes and somebody else gets 90 million votes and you win.”

So, does Donald Trump think Hillary Clinton should have won the election? It certainly sounds like it.
And if he really wants to right this wrong he should ask the Electoral College to casts their votes for Hillary Clinton on December 19th. That’s the day electors from every state gather to cast their vote for president to make the election official.
Millions of Americans have already signed a petition asking the electors to cast their votes for Hillary because she won the popular vote. Also because it would prevent a disastrous administration from taking power.
Doing this would not only help the nation, it would let Trump escape the responsibility of governing, something he is clearly not interested in doing.
Of course, Trump’s supporters would whine and cry foul, but they’d only have Trump to blame.
