Donald Trump Calls Hillary Clinton 'Sad' For Participating in Election Recount

Donald Trump is calling out Hillary Clinton again.

The 70-year-old President-elect took to social media to criticize Clinton‘s camp for participating in the election recount launched by the Green Party.

Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change,” Trump tweeted. “Hillary‘s debate answer on delay: ‘That is horrifying. That is not the way our democracy works. Been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a during a general election. I, for one, am appalled that somebody that is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.’ Then, separately she stated, ‘He said something truly horrifying … he refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. That is a direct threat to our democracy.’ She then said, ‘We have to accept the results and look to the future, Donald Trump is going to be our President. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.’”

He added, “So much time and money will be spent – same result! Sad.”

Trump also claimed that he “won” popular vote, though Clinton is still up by two million votes, according to USA Today.

“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” he wrote. “It would have been much easier for me to win the so-called popular vote than the Electoral College in that I would only campaign in 3 or 4 states instead of the 15 states that I visited. I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!”

VIDEO: Kanye West Would Have Voted for Trump, If He Voted

Kanye West just made a pretty surprising confession – he would have voted for Donald Trump had he voted at all in the presidential election.

The 39-year-old rapper, whose wife Kim Kardashian publicly voiced her support for Hillary Clinton, announced the news to the crowd at his concert on Thursday night (November 17) in San Jose, Calif.

“I said something that was kind of politically correct. I told y’all I didn’t vote. But if I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump. I wanted to say that before the election, but they told me, ‘Whatever you do, don’t say that aloud,’” Kanye told the crowd.

“Not only did I not vote, but there were a lot of things I actually liked about Trump‘s campaign. His approach was f–king genius – because it worked,” Kanye added.

“That don’t mean I don’t think that black lives matter. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in women’s rights. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage. That don’t mean that I don’t believe in these things,” he said, according to Daily Mail.

Comments that Trump made about Paris as a child were brought into the election controversy surrounding his treatment of women.

Mark Zuckerberg Responds to Allegations Facebook Swayed Presidential Election

Facebook has come under fire for allowing the publication of false articles – which many are saying altered the result of the 2016 Presidential Election.

In his viral post-election episode, John Oliver did a whole segment about fake news sites posting false information to Facebook. The dispersal of that news, John alleged, could have altered how people voted for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook to address the concerns.

“Of all the content on Facebook, more than 99% of what people see is authentic. Only a very small amount is fake news and hoaxes. The hoaxes that do exist are not limited to one partisan view, or even to politics. Overall, this makes it extremely unlikely hoaxes changed the outcome of this election in one direction or the other,” Mark wrote.

“That said, we don’t want any hoaxes on Facebook. Our goal is to show people the content they will find most meaningful, and people want accurate news. We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further,” he added. Read his whole update below…
