President Trump Officially Has Received More Votes than Barack Obama Ever Did


The messy, disputed 2020 presidential election will go into the record books for something more than the number of lawsuits engendered by the decision by many states to adopt mass mail-in ballots. President Donald Trump became the first sitting president to top 70 million votes, with a total of 70,812,803 as of incomplete and unofficial returns posted on Fox News as of Sunday afternoon. He also moves ahead of former President Barack Obama, who received 69,498,516 votes in the 2008 presidential election, according to the Federal Election Commission. Obama’s mark had been the record for any presidential candidate until this election. Trump noted his achievement on Twitter, and also shared his contention that it should have been enough to win.
