Donald Trump's Now-Ironic Tweet From 2012 Is Going Viral

Donald Trump's 2012 tweet about the electoral college is going viral - for obvious reasons.

President-elect Donald Trump, much like George W. Bush in 2000, won his race by winning the electoral college vote despite not winning (in all likelihood) the popular vote. Of course, that's how our country's democratic process works - the rules are the rules. But ironically, Trump wasn't all about it just four years ago.

After seeing Barack Obama defeat Mitt Romney back in 2012, Trump denounced the electoral college - calling it a "disaster" for democracy. Check it out:

Now, of course, it worked in his favor after he eked out close wins in states like Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan and more. Regardless, he's set to be our 45th President.
