#Donald Trump has indicated in a Twitter post 27 November, that the Democrats have a dodgy attitude to the recounts called for by Green's Jill Stein. He had previously posted that the whole recount issue is a "scam." According to Washington CNN, the Democrats will go along with the Green Party in their efforts to get a recount going in Key States, despite Marc Elias, Clinton's campaign counsel posting on Medium, that there is not "any evidence of hacking of voting systems."
First Trump reaction to Stein recount
When Donald Trump first reacted to the call for a recount, he posted up the following tweet.
The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2016
His motivation was apparently sparked by the fact that with over $5 million raised already and the projected cost of the recount to be in the region of only $400,000 - that the Greens would no doubt, pocket the excess cash for their party. In response, many Green and Democrat supporters felt insulted and one tweeter reminded Trump that there are lots of people in America who object to being labeled scammers along with Jill Stein.
.@realDonaldTrump Mr. President-elect, that's more than HALF the country that didn't vote for you you're insulting. Grow up. Get it together— Isaac Saul (@Ike_Saul) November 27, 2016
Trump latest tweet straight slap at flip-flop Democrats
Trump's latest Twitter post points to the Democrats swinging the other way, from their stance when they thought they were going win.
The Democrats, when they incorrectly thought they were going to win, asked that the election night tabulation be accepted. Not so anymore!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2016
Supporters of Trump as the new president-elect after the #Election 2016 were quick to jump in and give their views on the recounts that the Greens are after and the Democrats now want to support.
@realDonaldTrump democrats don't care about the people like you do they care about maintaining power— Ariana Rowlands♛ (@IamQueenAri) November 27, 2016
Wisconsin agree to recount to deadline 13 December
As this is going on, Reuters reported that Key State, Wisconsin has agreed to a recount of the election across the State. The Elections Commission have said in a statement that they will begin the recount next week after the Greens have paid their fees. Wisconsin and Pensylvania have received similar applications. All these States were very closely contested.
Just like Donald Trump said in his Twitter post the Democrats are swinging away from what they previously said. From saying their investigations found 'no evidence of hacking,' they now say that it is important that they 'participate in the green recount.' The Wall Street Journal quoted Marc Elias' blog entry on the swing-swung Democrats as, "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. 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."
Wisconsin State officials are planning to work extra hours and weekends in order to complete the recount by the deadline of 13 December. Hillary Clinton conceded the Election 2016 to Trump, so it could be very interesting to see the official figures of the recount. Will Santa brighten up the Democrats festive season? #Democrats vs Republicans
