Donald Trump decisively won the presidency by securing enough electoral college votes, but on Tuesday morning he couldn’t help but address the fact that Hillary Clinton is winning the popular vote.

In tweets published Tuesday morning, Trump claimed he could have won the popular vote if he had campaigned differently, and he praised the Electoral College system.

Trump is singing a different tune about the Electoral College than he did in 2012, when he tweeted that the system is a “disaster.”
