2016 Presidential Election Part 2

The election is done. Donald Trump would become the 45th President of the United States. 2016 Presidential Election Part 2 just skims the surface of the mayhem that would follow. Democrats would blame everyone under the sun about losing, except their decision on the candidate. Republicans, particularly Trump, wanted to know why he didn’t win the popular vote.

Democrats focused on unsubstantiated claims that millions of white racists came out to vote. As if they were men that lived in the forests. Suddenly, Trump’s call led them to the voting booths. Which was untrue based on data. In fact, Trump received about the same, or a little less, of the white vote than Romney.

Trump was focused on why people didn’t overwhelmingly vote for him. So he resorted to voter fraud and launched an investigation into that. Hint: nothing came from it.
