Earlier this month, the entire world was shocked that #Donald Trump was able to pull of the political upset of the century and defeat #Hillary Clinton to become the next president-elect. After it was announced that a recount was going to take place in Wisconsin, Trump fired back on #Twitter.
Trump on recount
Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein was able to raise over $5 million before Friday's deadline and filed a recount in Wisconsin. The effort came after reports of alleged election hacking in the state that could reveres as many as 30,000 votes. Donald Trump won the state by 27,000 votes, so the impact would be a difference of 10 electoral votes in favor of Hillary Clinton. As seen on his offical Twitter account on November 26, the former host of "The Apprentice" is not happy about what is going on in the Badger State.
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
"The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems," Trump tweeted on Saturday night. Prior to his tweet, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway offered similar sediments on the issue. "What a pack of sore losers," Conway told Bloomberg in a prepared statement. "Rather than adhere to the tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well," Conway continued, before adding "they've (Stein) opted to waste millions of dollars and dismiss the democratic process."
Despite push back from conservatives, Stein is also planning a possible recount in Michigan and Pennsylvania where similar election hacking has been rumored to take place. After almost two weeks of waiting, the offical count was concluded in the state of Michigan on Saturday, with Trump coming out on top by just over 10,000 votes.
Baring unlikely success from the recount, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the nation's next president on January 20. Until then, the billionaire real estate mogul will continue to sit down with his transition team, and put together the remaining members of his cabinet and administration. Trump's recent picks have already created controversy, including Breitbart News' Steve Bannon as Chief Stagiest, and Republican donor Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.
