WASHINGTON, November 27. /TASS/. The US Democratic Party keeps coming with "phony" excuses for losing the 2016 presidential election by blaming it on Russia, President Donald Trump wrote in his Twitter account.

"Since the first day I took office, all you hear is the phony Democrat excuse for losing the election, Russia, Russia, Russia," President Trump stated.

"Despite this I have the (US) economy booming and have possibly done more than any 10 month President," the US president said adding "Make America great again!"

On Election Day, November 8, 2016, American citizens cast their ballots and elected their 45th US President, Donald J. Trump, who was inaugurated on January 20, 2017.

Trump, the Republican candidate, secured his presidential victory by surpassing the needed 270 electoral votes and won over his rival Hillary Clinton, who was a candidate from the Democratic Party.
