Now that the Electoral College has made Donald Trump one step closer to becoming the 45th president of the United States, liberal author and filmmaker Michael Moore says the centuries-old system designed by America's Founding Fathers is "racist."

On Tuesday morning, a day after Trump officially received the electoral votes needed to become president, Moore tweeted a message to the "rest of the world" in an attempt to "explain what happened yesterday."

Moore pointed out that while Trump won the electoral vote, he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes. He then called attention to the "racist" Electoral College system, established in the 1700s, which he said ironically helped elect the candidate who "spewed racist hate."

But Moore gave no indication that he's giving up — at least not yet.

In a later tweet, Moore promised to find a legal and nonviolent way to stop Trump from being inaugurated Jan. 20.

"I wish I could give u better news. As bad as it seems, it will be worse. We are broken," Moore added.

Moore promised to pay any fines Electoral College members' states might impose on them for switching their votes away from Trump in a last-ditch effort to deny the Manhattan billionaire the presidency.
