Trump Slams Green Party Recount “Scam”, Accuses Stein Of “Filling Her Coffers With Money”
U. S. President-elect Donald Trump appears to agree with our perspective on Jill Stein’s money-raising effort, lashing out this afternoon in an official statement calling her request for a recount of votes in Wisconsin a “scam” by the Green Party.
Until now, as AP reports, Trump had been ignoring Green Party nominee Jill Stein’s fight to revisit vote totals in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Wisconsin officials announced late Friday they are moving forward with the first presidential recount in state history.
“The people have spoken and the election is over,” Trump declared Saturday. He added, “We must accept this result and then look to the future.” “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.”
“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 (Green Party leader) Jill Stein is doing.“
