Green party candidate Jill Stein has been calling for a recount and even filed paperwork on Friday to make it official. The Democratic party and especially Hillary Clinton are behind her in the process. Ironic considering Stein wants to topple the two party system. Donald Trump and his transition team called this out for exactly what it is… a nonsense scam.
Even President Obama threw Hillary Clinton under the bus for getting involved in this ridiculous movement. After she promised in her concession speech to accept the results of the election.
A senior official under the Obama administration released a statement about the recount issue and ABC News reported, on it saying,

Stein’s argument for a recount stems from her belief that voter machines in several states favored Trump and that they could have possibly been tampered with as a result. Trump called it out as a scam because she initially said it would cost only $2.5 million. Then it was raised to $4.5 million. After, it was raised to $6 million and they have finally settled on $7 million. Which is starkly different number than they began with.
Trump argued that Stein was trying to pocket the money for herself. Stein insists that excess funds will go towards,
“election integrity efforts and to promote voting system reform.”
Mark Erik Elias is heading the recount efforts and he is a well known Hillary Clinton staffer. Funnily enough, he admitted that there is no evidence to prove these allegations of voter fraud. He said,
“Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides.
We do so fully aware that the number of votes separating Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the closest of these states — Michigan — well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount.”
Initial reports show that the recounts only provided a small consolation. Many counties showed that where Trump had say a 13,000 vote lead he instead had a 10,000 vote lead. Which means that this money is being wasted to get the exact same result that we got on election day… a President Elect Donald Trump.
This is a disgusting waste of taxpayer money that will work to find a result that will not change anything. Which ironically will make Trump supporters like him even more and hate the Democrat’s even more than they already do.
