Trump condemns push to force recounts in 3 states
WEST PALM BEACH - President-elect Donald Trump is condemning the push to force recounts in three states pivotal to his Nov. 8 victory.
In a statement released by his transition team, Trump called the developing recount effort "a scam."
He says, "The people have spoken and the election is over."
Until now, Trump had ignored Green Party nominee Jill Stein's fight to revisit vote totals in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. But Democratic rival Hillary Clinton forced his hand today by formally joining the effort.
Stein, who drew 1 percent of the vote nationally, is raising millions of dollars to fund the recounts.
Wisconsin officials announced yesterday that they are moving forward with the first presidential recount in state history.
