Donald Trump no longer believes the Electoral College is “a disaster for democracy.” It’s now “actually genius.” You know, since the GOP nominee won the United States presidency by winning a majority of electors despite losing the popular vote.

Of course, he also tweeted that he could have won the popular vote as well had he not been focused on states needed for an electoral college win.

“If the election were based on total popular vote I would have campaigned in N.Y. Florida and California and won even bigger and more easily,” he wrote.
