IN THE lead-up to the US election, Donald Trump was widely panned for crying foul about the election process.
He claimed it was rigged against him, accusing the system of including 1.8 million dead Democrats who would “absolutely vote”, and “phony polling” by a “biased media” that favoured “Crooked Hillary”.
He also claimed there were 2.5 million people in the country registered to vote twice, which would help secure a win for his opponent Hillary Clinton.
These comments, lacking in credible evidence, were derided by the mainstream media and Democrats alike.
President Barack Obama spoke out saying Mr Trump’s attempt to “discredit the election process” was unprecedented and unfactual.
