Donald Trump has finally addressed the growing push for a recount in several states by Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Shortly after the Clinton campaign stated that they will take part in the recount effort in Wisconsin and other swing states, the president-elect released an official statement on Stein’s fundraiser. For Trump, there’s little doubt in his mind that the entire recount effort is little more than a scam:

“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 many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount…

“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.”
