If true, the news adds further credence to the image of a president still insecure about his tight 2016 election win. Though Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton bested him in the popular vote by close to three million votes, Trump won the presidency by netting 74 more electoral college votes.
In an April interview with Reuters, Trump distributed copies of a similar electoral college map showing his win to reporters during a conversation about China.
