Trump Calls Millions of Votes 'Illegal'
This is What's Trending Today...
President-elect Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had their last debate before the presidential election on October 19.
The moderator of the debate, Chris Wallace, asked Trump if he would accept the results of the election.
In response, Trump said, "I will look at it at the time." Later in the conversation, he said, "I'll keep you in suspense, okay?"
Trump is now the president-elect. He is set to take office in January.
But officials have announced they will re-count the votes in some states. In response, Trump wrote on Twitter that "millions" of people voted illegally for his opponent.
Almost 50,000 people forwarded the tweet, and close to 150,000 more "liked" it.
News organizations and political analysts say no evidence supports Trump's claim.
One reason that people are still disputing the results is because of how presidents are elected in the United States. States – not voters – choose the president. The system is called the Electoral College.
In the 2016 election, Trump won enough states under the Electoral College system to beat Hillary Clinton, but he did not win the most votes overall.
Members of the Electoral College will meet on December 19.
The results were very close in three of the states Trump won -- Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Activists are raising money to request the votes there be re-counted.
If the results change, Trump risks losing the Electoral College and therefore the election.
This weekend, Trump said on Twitter that he won the Electoral College. He would have won the popular vote, too, he said, "if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally."
Trump also claimed there were illegal votes in three of the states Clinton won: Virginia, New Hampshire and California. Trump asked, "Why isn't the media reporting on this?"
Alex Padilla is the secretary of state in California. He said Trump did not have evidence for his claim of illegal votes in California. Padilla added that Trump's tweets were "reckless" and "unbecoming" of a president-elect.
Others warned news organizations not to report Trump's comments without considering first whether they were true.
One social media user brought some humor into the debate, saying: "Trump won the popular vote 100-percent if you deduct the millions and millions of people who did not vote for him."
And that's What's Trending Today.

10月19日，侯任总统唐纳德·川普（Donald Trump）与前国务卿希拉里·克林顿（Hillary Clinton）进行了大选前的最后一场辩论 。
当时，主持人克里斯·华莱士（Chris Wallace）曾问及川普能否接受大选结果 。
川普回应称，“到时再说 。”但在之后的访谈中他表示，“先跟大家卖个关子 。”
川普现为侯任总统 。他将于1月份正式上任 。
然而，有议员宣布将在一些州重新进行计票 。川普在推特回应称，希拉里方存在数百万非法选票 。
大选结果至今倍受争议是因为美国的总统选举方式 。总统由各州选出而非选民直接票选 。该选举制度被称之为选举人团 。
川普拿下的威斯康星州、密歇根州和宾夕法尼亚州三个州的选举结果异常接近 。相关士正准备筹集资金打算对这些州重新计票 。
本周末，川普在推特上称，他赢得了选举人团 。他还表示，“扣除数百万张的非法选票，”他照样能赢得大选 。
亚历克斯·帕迪亚（Alex Padilla）是加利福尼亚州的州务卿 。他表示，川普没有证据能够证明加州存在非法投票 。帕迪亚还表示，身为候选总统发表如此推文太过轻率、有失身份 。
