President Donald Trump again Monday said he would have won the popular vote against Democrat Hillary Clinton in November if not for voter fraud, Politico reported.

The exchange happened during a White House meeting with bipartisan leaders, according to the website. Politico said multiple sources who attended the meeting reported the exchange and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, confirmed the comment, but said, "I didn't pay a lot of attention to it. I was ready to move on to some policy issues. I didn't anticipate that discussion."

Trump handily won the Electoral College vote Nov. 8, but Clinton captured the popular vote by almost three million. Though the popular vote does not determine the president in U.S. elections, Trump has insisted he would have won that, too, if millions had not voted illegally.

He first tweeted his voter fraud claim Nov. 27.

Trump has "provided no evidence to back up that claim, and multiple fact checks and investigations have called the assertion false," Politico wrote.

The final national vote tally, Clinton took 65,844,954 votes to Trump's 62,979,879 nationwide.
