Donald Trump has recently slammed Jill Stein for calling out for a vote recount in a few states, saying that this attempts are nothing more than a “scam.”
“This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing,” said the president-elect.
Recently, due to a concern that the voting system has been rigged, Stein pushed for a vote recount in Wisconsin and has claimed that the same should be done in Pennsylvania and Michigan too, states that Trump fairly won.
Clinton’s general adviser Marc Elias said that the Clinton Campaign will join the Wisconsin recount, even though they do not have any solid proof that the system has been manipulated. Elias also said that the Campaign will join the recount in the states of Pennsylvania and Michigan if Stein said that this needed to be done.
Marc wrote in a statement on Medium that while no proof of interference with the voting system has been found, “now that a recount is underway, we believe we have an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton to participate in ongoing proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported.”
“But regardless of the potential to change the outcome in any of the states, we feel it is important, on principle, to ensure our campaign is legally represented in any court proceedings and represented on the ground in order to monitor the recount process itself,” he further said.
Donald Trump did not explicitly mention Hillary’s name, despite the fact that her campaign has decided to participate in this process.
“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount,” stated Trump.
“All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes,” he added.
