This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded,” Trump fumed, calling the recount effort “ridiculous.”
“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than 1 percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money,’’ the president-elect added.
Stein’s crowdfunding campaign to raise money for election challenges had racked up $5.9 million by late Saturday — which is more than enough to pay for the Wisconsin recount, estimated at $1 million.
Election rules in Pennsylvania, which require candidates to challenge the tally at the county level by Monday, make recounts a daunting prospect there.
Wednesday is the deadline to file recount requests in Michigan.
The results in all three states would have to be overturned for Trump to lose the Electoral College vote on December 19.
