This is very unlikely to be true. The Washington Post wrote an article entitled "The dubious claims about SoftBank’s investments in the U.S". Source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2016/12/08/the-dubious-claims-about-softbanks-investments-in-the-u-s/?utm_term=.a16f4cd6c72e

"On Sunday, President-elect Trump unleashed a barrage of tweets complaining about calls for recounts or vote audits in several closely contested states, and culminating in this message:

“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally".

This is a lie, part of Mr. Trump’s pattern, stretching back many years, of disregard for indisputable facts".
