Donald Trump Seethes at Jill Stein’s Recount Effort: ‘Nothing Will Change’

Nov 27, 2016

Donald Trump continued to criticize the election recount effort by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein via Twitter on Sunday.

"The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems," the President-elect wrote, following up on a statement he released yesterday against the recount.

Stein said on Wednesday that she would file for recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, swing states that Trump won during the election. She filed for the Wisconsin recount on Friday. Hillary Clinton's campaign announced on Saturday that it would participate in the recount in Wisconsin, although they don't expect a different outcome.

Trump took aim at the Democratic Party for joining the recount effort on Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

"The Democrats, when they incorrectly thought they were going to win, asked that the election night tabulation be accepted. Not so anymore!" he wrote.

He then launched into tweetstorm that quoted Democratic candidate Clinton's concession speech and one of her presidential debate answers to illustrate his view that "nothing will change" with the recount.
