Trump Blasts Clinton Over U.s. Votes Recount
SAN FRANCISCO, November 28, (THEWILL) – President-elect of the United States, Donald Trump, has accused his Democratic presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, of reneging on her concession speech certifying the results of the November 28 presidential election.
Trump, in a series of tweets on the recount, condemned Clinton's support to the votes recount efforts by Green Party nominee Jill Stein for Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
THEWILL recalls that Stein has raised over six million dollars crowd-funding in hopes of securing a recount in the three key states won by Trump in the presidential poll. http://thewillnigeria.com/news/no-joke-americans-raise-4-5m-for-us-vote-recount/
Trump recalled Clinton's reaction when he hinted at the third and last presidential debate that he would keep Americans guessing over whether he would accept the election outcome.
“The Democrats, when they incorrectly thought they were going to win, asked that the election night tabulation be accepted. Not so anymore!,” Trump tweeted.
“Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in.”
“That is horrifying. That is not the way our democracy works; been around for 240 years. We've had free and fair elections,” he quoted Clinton as saying.
“We've accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on 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.”
Trump said Clinton also, at a campaign rally, slammed him, saying: “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”.
“We have to accept the results and look to the future, Donald Trump is going to be our President,” quoting Clinton's concession speech.
“We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”
Trump also claimed that he won the popular votes, alleging that millions of people voted illegally.
“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 tweeted.
“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 three or four states instead of the 15 states that I visited.
“I would have won even more easily and convincingly (but smaller states are forgotten)!
“Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!”
Trump said in the vote's recount efforts in the three states, money and time would be wasted declaring that the result not change.
“So much time and money will be spent – same result! Sad.”
