Donald Trump is lashing out on Twitter in advance of the Electoral College vote.
The president-elect says: ‘If my many supporters acted and threatened people like those who lost the election are doing, they would be scorned & called terrible names!’

The 538 members of the Electoral College are gathering Monday to formally elect Trump.
GOP electors have been inundated with emails, phone calls and letters urging them to vote against Trump. And protests are planned across the country in state capitals where electors will meet.
Some members said they even received death threats.
‘Somebody threatened to put a bullet in the back of my mouth,’ Michael Banerian, a GOP elector attending Oakland University in Michigan, told the New York Post.
People on Twitter were quick to point out that Trump’s supporters actually had threatened people.
‘Your supporters yelled ‘Hang the b**ch’ about Hillary Clinton,’ one pointed out.
‘Like the ones that spray paint swastikas in the honor of your name?’ asked another.
Others pointed out that Trump’s own words admit that his supporters acted violently.
‘You people were vicious, violent, screaming, “Where’s the wall? We want the wall!” Screaming, “Prison! Prison! Lock her up!” I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?’ he asked an Orlando crowd on Friday as part of his ‘Thank You’ tour of select states.
On Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon reprised her role as Hillary Clinton, and spoofed the movie Love, Actually, by showing up at an elector’s home with placards silently begging her to vote for ‘literally anyone else.’
In some states, voting for the candidate not chosen as the victor in terms of state votes is illegal, reports ABC Action News.
