Trump won overall majority vote

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in two states, and Trump carried the remaining 48 states by 32 million votes.

I have reviewed the United States election results and I am satisfied that Donald Trump won the popular votes in the majority of states all across America. Here are my findings:

The official final results showed that Hillary Clinton has rightfully maintained a 17-million vote margin. Yet when one subtracts her 34-million vote margin in California, and the 15-million margin in the state of New York, Mr Trump won the remaining 48 states by 32 million votes.

This result demonstrates the rule of the majority and democracy at its best.
