Clinton's lead over Trump now over 2mn popular votes

Donald Trump won with 290 electoral college votes against Hillary Clinton with 230 electoral college votes, however, Clinton is winning over popular vote with a lead margin of 2 million votes according to Heavy.

Clinton lost the Electoral College solidly, and the climbing popular vote spread doesn't change anything about who will hold power in Washington.

In an unprecedented turn of events, Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has just surpassed two million votes.

It was a surprising result given that the turnout was much larger than it was in 2012 and Donald Trump won the county.

During an interview with reporters and editors of The New York Times, Trump threw enough hints that he would be an unconventional president in terms of distancing himself from his business, receiving inputs from family members in his governance and relationship with the press.

They are curious on why Clinton performed worse in counties that relied on electronic voting machines compared to paper ballots and optical scanners. So what happened between then and now?

A group of academics, lawyers and data experts are also trying to persuade the Clinton's team to join their efforts to investigate the results in three states to check if there was foreign computer hacking that manipulated the outcome.

There are also calls to recount votes in some swing states like MI, where the Republican candidate won by a narrow margin of 30,000 votes for a total of five million voters.

Mr. Trump constantly called for reintroducing waterboarding and other torture when interrogating terrorism suspects in his presidential campaign. Trump won the election on November 8 by earning 306 electoral votes nationwide, compared to Clinton's 232 electoral votes.
