Trump Calls Press ‘Dishonest,’ Then Utters Falsehoods of His Own – The New York Times

‘It was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan.’Mr. Trump won 306 Electoral College votes, well above the threshold needed to secure the presidency but well behind several of his most recent predecessors. President Barack Obama won 332 Electoral College votes in 2012 and 365 four years earlier. President Bill Clinton received 370 Electoral College votes in 1992 and 379 in 1996. And President George Bush won 426 Electoral College votes in 1988.When a reporter pressed Mr. Trump on the claim, he laid the blame elsewhere. “I was given that information,” he said.
