Green Party candidate Jill Stein raises millions for a recount; President-Elect Donald Trump says “this is a scam”

white-house-trump-clinton-tlsGreen Party candidate Jill Stein – who received less than 1% of the vote, has called for a recall, and has raised millions of dollars for the cause. And today, the Clinton campaign said it would join in the efforts.

Trump in a statement today called the efforts a scam:

“The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.’

“It is important to point out that with the help of millions of voters across the country, we won 306 electoral votes on Election Day – the most of any Republican since 1988 – and we carried nine of 13 battleground states, 30 of 50 states, and more than 2,600 counties nationwide – the most since President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

“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. All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes.

“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.”

  1. Whoever voted for this person, thanks u NOT!!!

    See what she is raising millions for?
    For poor families, needing food and rent money? NO
    For sick needing medication? NO

    For a recall which she will gain nothing!!!!

    What a waste of money!!!

    Just shows what kind of person she is!!!!

  2. It wasn’t really a mandate, Trump lost the popular vote by over 2 million votes and counting. That said, I doubt that anything will come out of this recount.

  3. J,
    It was a Mandate.
    Every country has a system,and the people have to win the system

    If a different country,say Israel,would adopt an electoral system ,we would approach voting differently than now ,in order to win in that system

    Let’s say one year the Democrats elected less Senators, but had more total people voting for their minority of Senators ,would that be less/more of a Mandate?
