Here’s why Donald Trump is obsessed with the 2016 electoral map

( CNN) Donald Trump has been President for 100 daytimes. And it’s been even longer — 172 daytimes — since Trump actually won the election.

But, for Trump, that November 8 nighttime is like yesterday. Or at least he’d like it to be.

In an interview with Reuters earlier in the week, Trump handed out copies of the county-by-county 2016 electoral maps to each of the three reporters assembled in the Oval Office. “Here, you can take that, that’s the final map of the numbers, ” Trump replied. “It’s pretty good, right? The cherry-red is obviously us.”
