Donald Trump has stopped an interview in order to brag about the size of his election victory. Trump was talking to reporters on Thursday 27 April inside the Oval office when he presented each of them with maps showing off the size of his win back in November.

Trump beat Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president of the United States on the electoral college, but he lost the popular vote by more than 3m.

"[Trump] sort of interrupted himself and handed out this map of the Electoral College and said that these were the latest figures of the areas in the country that he had won in 2016," Jeff Mason, Reuters' White House correspondent, said on Friday 28 April on CNN's New Day.

"So it was just clear that the election, even five months after – he's been in office nearly 100 days and gone through the transition – remains very much on his mind.

"I think he just wanted to relish in the fact that this map looks good for him," Mason said, showing off the map Trump gave him. "He said, 'The red is obviously us.'

"So whether that's rooted in a sense that he still has to prove that he won or that he's upset that the media got it wrong in terms of the predictions ahead of time, that's hard for me to say."

On Saturday Trump will reach his 100th day in office.
