In her first meeting with President Donald Trump after the election, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi D-Calif., said the president claimed to have won the popular vote, but she had informed him otherwise.
Pelosi described her first meeting with the president during a conversation with MSNBC host Joy Reid at New York City’s 92 Street Y on Sunday. The meeting took place in the East Wing of the White House, according to Pelosi because "he wanted to have a little hospitality, pigs in blankets, kosher meatballs. Bless him for his hospitality." Once the meeting began, Pelosi said that Trump's first comments were, "You know I won the popular vote."
"Now I’m a very courteous person," Pelosi explained, "but I thought, Well he seems a little casual about this so I’ll be a little casual too. So I said, 'Mr. President, that isn’t true and there’s no evidence, facts or data to support what you’re saying.'"
Trump then cited that millions voted illegally.
"Oh yeah, 3 to 5 million people voted illegally and I’m not even counting California," Trump had said, according to Pelosi. The president had repeatedly made these claims since his election victory, and even reiterated them after taking office.
Those so-called statistics he was relying from come from a group that has produced zero evidence of this claim and can't even complete their audit. The president has also been so wrapped up in his November victory, he's given out Electoral College maps to show off and has made it a big part of his agenda to show off his win to world leaders.
