Donald Trump in 2012 stated on Twitter that the electoral college was a "disaster for democracy", but his opinion has reversed itself ever since being elected the next US president despite losing the popular vote.


On Tuesday, Trump said that the electoral college was "actually genius".

Trump appeared sensitive against the charge that his presidency isn't a reflection of the will of the American populace, and defended himself for winning the presidency even though more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton
