( CNN) Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election 147 days ago. He remains fixated on his win — and the fact no one insured it coming.
Speaking at the 2017 North America’s Building Trades Unions National Legislative Conference in Washington months after Election Day, Trump regaled the assembled union members with the story about his unlikely win, something he has done at countless speeches before.
