Trump slams Democrats, Green Party on votes recount

By Tiamiyu Arobani

New York  –  Donald Trump, the incoming U.S. President, on Tuesday, slammed the Democrats and the Green Party for their unsuccessful efforts at the presidential votes recount.

“The final Wisconsin vote is in and guess what – we just picked up an additional 131 votes.

“The Dems and Green Party can now rest. Scam!

Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have just certified my wins in those states. I actually picked up additional votes! Trump said on his twitter handle.

He also dismissed insinuations about alleged hacking of the voting system during the election.

“Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card.

“It would be called conspiracy theory!

“Unless you catch “hackers” in the act, it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking.

“Why wasn’t this brought up before election?” he remarked.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the votes recount hope faded on Monday as efforts spearheaded by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein came to a close.

A Federal Judge ruled in Pennsylvania on Monday against Stein’s request for a review of the voting systems, saying it was possible they had been hacked and compromised.

In his decision, federal judge Paul Diamond said Stein’s allegation of possible election tampering “borders on the irrational.”

Diamond also cited the delay between Election Day and Stein’s decision to file the lawsuit, and said Stein did not have standing to sue on the issue.

Stein could appeal the decision, but time is short as all states must certify their election results by Tuesday, Dec. 13, so it is unlikely any new action could be taken before then.

Stein initially filed for recounts in three states where the final margin for President-elect Donald Trump was narrow: Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

Stein first began raising money for a possible recount in late November, and quickly began bringing in millions of dollars for the effort.

NAN reports that Stein’s effort has raised more than 7.3 million dollars in crowd-funding, according to her fundraising page.

NAN also reports that there were allegations of hacking of the U.S. voting system, which were fuelled after Democratic Hillary Clinton, projected to win the election, polled over 2.5 million votes ahead of Trump but lost the presidency to him on electoral college.

NAN further reports that President Barack Obama has directed security agencies to commence fresh investigation into the alleged hacking, which should be concluded before the end of his tenure.
