Donald Trump Comments on 'Ridiculous' Recount Request

Donald Trump is speaking out for the first time about Jill Stein and the Green Party’s request for an election recount in Wisconsin and two other battleground states.

“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,’” Trump said in his statement.

“It is important to point out that with the help of millions of voters across the country, we won 306 electoral votes on Electoral 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,” he continued. “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 my 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,” he concluded.

    Another reason why Trump shouldn’t be President: The presidential thing to say would be…”That is why I love our great country because we the people have the right to have our voices heard…let democracy do what it is meant to do. Have a great day.”

    Trump’s tongue will start wars. He already put his foot in his mouth earlier today with his Castro extra comment.

  • Seriously

    Well, if the people have spoken. Hillary got almost 2.3 million more votes than Trump. And she managed that despite Russia endlessly interfering with the campaign through hacking and 400 fake websites.

    Let’s get real. If this was the other way around Trump would spend the next decade in court whining about how the election was stolen from him.

    I can’t wait until this piece of shit is assassinated by his own Republican Congress due to him filling the Government with Businessmen instead of Politicians.

  • Naynay

    if you’re confident that you won then why are you afraid to do a recount ? only someone who would have cheated would be that scared

  • Joy

    Wouldn’t that be the best Christmas present the entire world ever received, if we could prove his crime and reverse the whole thing. :)

  • Joy

    Exactly. :) He’s so typical.

    One yr have passed since I finally quit my last job and it changed my life… I started doing a job from comfort of my house, for a company I discovered on-line, for a few hours a day, and I make much more than i did on my previous work… My payment for last month was for 9000 dollars… Amazing thing about this work is the more time i got for my loved ones… http://chilp.it/728813e

    Russia wants Clinton and it looks like Russia will get her :)

    The only problem.. Mike Pence would become president if he is impeached for his crimes and he is much much worse of a person than Trump :/ Let’s hope the recount proves of the hacking and Hillary will take the presidency.

  • John Dow

    You want war? Ok.

  • Joy

    Yes indeed.

  • j b

    At least the U.S would be run by a real politician and his cabinet would be politicians instead of the shit Businessmen that Donald Trump put in his cabinet.

  • Mercyneal

    Um, sport? It was Hillary who attacked him for not accepting results. Anyway PA says they aren’t doing a recount. His winning margin was too large and Hillary would have to prove there was massive fraud in every single county for it to go ahead. Deadline for total recount is on Monday two days from now

  • Mercyneal

    He’s not afraid, sport. Sad Hillary, who conceded is in the bargaining stage of denial… Michigan and PA said they aren’t doing recounts. This is a scam

  • Mercyneal

    Um, sporT? He’s not the one under FBI investigation for his shady foundation. He won. Get over it

  • Mercyneal

    What crime? Hillary is the one under FBI investigation. You are in denial

  • Mercyneal

    Um, sport? Michican and PA aren’t doing a recount And Trump’s margin in Wisconsin is much too big. Al Gore couldn’t overturn a 547 margin in Florida. You think Hillary is going to overturn a 70,000 margin?

  • Mercyneal

    Hillary is under investigation by the FBI because of the Clinton Foundation. She’s never done a job in the real world…. It’s over for her sport. Get over it. #soreloser

  • Mercyneal

    Glad you know so much./ The election is over. Get used to it. You know nothing

  • Mercyneal

    Ok your comment is flagged. And you do realize that the FBI is monitoring every single assassination threat about Trump on the internet? You could be getting a visit at your home. You need to be very careful… Flagged and blocked

    Just for fun, the popular vote without Commiefornia (California):

    Trump…. 58 116 618
    Clinton… 56 391 357

    You’re a sad, ignorant person, who is thrilled to have a racist, misogynist, homophobe as the face of your nation. You don’t matter.

    And hashtags are for people with no education.

    Lmao killary is the queen of crimes and her hubby and daughter who used foundation money for her wedding aren’t any better. Three crooks in the White House as opposed to one who wasent even in office like her is a better choice for any American. At least he didn’t sell us to the highest bidder.

  • Joy

    You’re delusional.
    I’d like to know, why would you want a President who is so cruel to
    people and full of hate, and also proudly said in his speeches that he
    doesn’t pay taxes? Taxes are how you pay for things you need, like
    roads. It’s for all of you.
