Trump on Twitter: More baseless claims by president-elect
Whether it’s petulance or a cunning attempt to spur voter suppression, Donald Trump’s irresponsible, unfounded claim that he would have won the popular vote but for the millions of “illegal” votes cast is a new low in a presidency that has not even formally begun.
Trump has yet to name most of his Cabinet members. He has but eight weeks to assemble a new administration, prepare for his first congressional session and get ready to deliver the State of the Union address. Yet here he is, still obsessing about the outcome of an election that he won. For those who harbored some faint hope that with victory might come a measure of stability, here is more evidence that Trump just can’t help himself.
