President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday made the astonishing claim that "millions of people who voted illegally" contributed to opponent Hillary Clinton's victory in the popular vote, following a campaign based largely on spreading conspiracy theories and claiming that the election was "rigged" against him.

Trump's latest lie seems to have originated from the conservative conspiracy website Infowars, which published an article claiming that Trump actually won the popular vote because "three million votes in the U.S. presidential election were cast by illegal aliens."

The tweet followed an earlier string of posts in which Trump railed against Clinton, claiming her campaign was hypocritical to participate in a vote recount because she criticized him when he would not affirm whether he would accept the results of the election.

Now it seems that Trump won't even fully accept the results of the election even though he won it.
