BREAKING: Electoral College Selects Trump As The official Winner
While a mass defections of electors would be extremely unlikely, most Americans had hoped that the Electoral College would step in and correct the “hacked elections” by siding with Hillary Clinton who won the popular vote by nearly 3 million ballots nationwide. Sadly, they sealed Trump’s victory instead.
According to CNN, Donald Trump has surpassed the necessary 270 votes in the Electoral College, the next step in the official process to become President.
Trump received 304 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 224. Six “faithless” electors voted for other candidates. Hawaii’s electors are still set to meet later Monday, with the state’s four votes expected to go to Clinton.
The results mean Trump – who lost the popular vote by more than 2 percentage points to Clinton – somehow will become the 45th president of the United States, elected by a minority of voters.
It’s a sad day for America, indeed.
