U.S. President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both complained about the 2016 Presidential Election.

The American media and constituency alike have complained about the constant complaints from both of the general election candidates. Both, however, show no sign of stopping their criticisms. On Tuesday, Clinton, the runner up, vented about her bitterness over beliefs that Russia had hacked the election, influencing the outcome. She also spoke at length about U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations Chief, James B. Comey, deciding to announce days before the vote that the FBI was conducting an investigation into her use of a private e-mail server during her time as the U.S. Secretary of State.
"If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president," said Clinton toCNN host, Christiane Amanpour. I was on the way to winning until a combination of (FBI Director) Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off. The evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign."


President Trump, for his part, has on multiple occasions questioned the gulf in the popular vote, which Clinton won by over two million votes. According to Trump, there were millions of illegal votes that resulted in that number. The Trump administration has cited northern Democratic states such as Connecticut as having participated in illegal voter fraud in order to push Clinton to victory.
