Even though Donald Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Election Day, he's been forced to deal with the fact that he lost the popular vote by nearly three million votes. In recent days, Trump has continued to push the debunked conspiracy theory that his popular vote loss was the result of voter fraud, and is now calling for an investigation.

Trump on voter fraud

Heading into the election, Donald Trump was not even considered a legit option to become the new president. After a year and a half of running one of the most controversial campaigns in history, Trump pulled off the upset to become the new commander in chief.

While the former host of "The Apprentice" has his fair share of supporters, millions of Americans continue to speak out against the new president. As seen on his official Twitter account on January 25, Trump is now pushing for an investigation into the voter fraud myth.

"I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time)," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter early Wednesday morning.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump also added, "Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!"

While Donald Trump claims that as many as five millions votes were cast illegally against him during the election, fact-checkers have repeatedly confirmed that there is no evidence to back up his claims.

Even some top Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. Lindsey Graham, have admitted that voter fraud was not an issue in the election, pleading with the new president to put the subject to bed.

President Donald Trump has only been in the White House for less than a week, and he's already making major moves.

In the last five days, Trump has signed multiple executive order, which include the start of the construction for his proposed border wall with Mexico, the begging of the repeal of Obamacare, and to restart the Keystone XL pipeline. Trump's recent decisions have caused expected backlash, and the political divide in the United States only appears to be widening.
