Hillary won the popular vote

Listening to NPR radio for a couple of hours, the closest I've heard to a mention that Clinton won the popular vote is that an occasional mention that Trump won the electoral vote. Mostly they just say Trump won the presidency.

Trump kept saying the system is rigged. When a candidate has won the popular vote while losing the electoral vote in modern times, they have been a Democrat; Gore in 2000, Hillary in 2016.

I don't know if all results are in.

Hillary : 47.6% 59,323,530 electoral 218
Trump : 47.5% 59,154,017 electoral 276
