BREAKING: Trump Shocks Supporters With Major Announcement

on

Green Party candidate Jill Stein has spent the last few weeks raising money to demand a recount of election votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Now, President-Elect Donald Trump is firing back at Stein in a big way.

“The Green Party just dropped its recount suit in Pennsylvania and is losing votes in Wisconsin recount,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday afternoon. “Just a Stein scam to raise money!”

Daily Mail reported that Trump wrote this just after Stein chose to take her case to federal court in Pennsylvania. She decided to do this after a state court issued a ruling on Saturday that made a Pennsylvania recount cost-prohibitive due to a $1 million bond put in place. Early Sunday, Stein tweeted that she would “escalate” the recount effort in the Keystone State and “demand a statewide recount on constitutional grounds.”

“The people deserve answers,” Stein added.

Stein had a tense appearance on Fox & Friends on Sunday when host Chris Wallace implied that the recount was just a fundraiser for Stein and fellow Greens.

“Isn’t that what this is really about, Dr. Stein, using the recount to raise lots of money and build your list of supporters?” Wallace asked.

Stein replied that the money was going into a “segregated account,” which would only be used on recount efforts.

“So this – this money is entirely – will be completely used, and we’ll be lucky if we can cover the cost at the rate that there is a bait and switch going on here,” she said. “In Wisconsin, we just saw this cost triple. So, to my mind, it’s – it really underscores why we need a fundamentally secure voting system that has built-in safeguards that should have automatic audits, recounts.”

“We need to get rid of these voting machines, these electronic touch screens, which have been proven highly vulnerable to tampering, to hacking, to human and machine errors,” she added. “This is an – this is an abuse of the American vote.”

    I don’t like what JS is doing either. The last part of your comment is nasty and bigoted. What is it suppose to mean? Somehow I doubt you would write the same if JS were black or gay. You know you would be slaughtered by other readers.
