More than 72 million Americans voted for President Donald Trump in the recent US Election - about nine million more than voted for him in 2016.
Whilst it wasn't enough to grant the incumbent president a second term in office, with his opponent Joe Biden emerging triumphant, it was enough to confuse many who couldn't understand why the controversial president remained widely popular among voters.
