President-elect Trump spent Wednesday morning recapping his victory in the presidential election last month, chalking it up to smart campaigning and Hillary Clinton’s misguided strategy.

In a series of tweets, Trump said he’s not worried about losing the popular vote to Clinton by more than 2.8 million votes, because that’s not how the election is decided.

“Campaigning to win the Electoral College is much more difficult & sophisticated than the popular vote,” he wrote. “Hillary focused on the wrong states!”

Trump repeated that he would have campaigned differently if the election was based on the popular vote.

“I would have done even better in the election, if that is possible, if the winner was based on popular vote — but would campaign differently,” Trump said.

Trump bragged that he was able to beat Clinton and still spend far less money on his campaign than she did. Clinton out-raised Trump by $380 million, according to multiple reports.

“I have not heard any of the pundits or commentators discussing the fact that I spent FAR LESS MONEY on the win than Hillary on the loss!” Trump said.
