During the presidential elections, Hillary Clinton won more than 800,000 votes from people, who were not citizens of the US.
During the presidential elections, former candidate for US president from the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, won more than 800,000 votes from people, who were not citizens of the US, the Washington Times newspaper reported, citing a research of political scientist Jesse Richman of the Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump repeatedly said that millions of people voted illegal during the presidential elections. However, according to the newspaper, the number of illegal votes, cast for Clinton, was 834,000, but not five million, as Trump stated.
According to the researcher, 6.4% of 20 million people, living in the US without citizenship, voted in the election in November of the last year. He claims that 81% of these illegal votes were cast for Clinton.
In this way, probably, these votes helped Clinton to win in one of the states or improved her result.
The official election results were approved by the legislatures of states and the US Congress. Trump became the winner, gaining the majority of electors of states, though Clinton garnered 2 million votes more than him. The state authorities, who were responsible for the conduct of the election, did not reveal any massive violations in the presidential elections. Speaking about falsifications, Trump is contrary not only to the opinion of states, but also to the point of view of the vast majority of representatives of the both parties, who have considered the elections fair.
