Michigan certifies Trump win

Donald Trump on Monday was named the winner in Michigan, the last state to be awarded in the presidential election.

The Michigan Board of Canvassers certified its 16 electoral votes to Trump even as an expected recount looms. The Associated Press and NBC News both called the state for the real estate mogul.

The results, submitted by the state’s 83 county clerks, were first posted last Wednesday by Michigan’s secretary of State. They showed Trump leading Hillary Clinton by more than 10,704 votes.

Trump is the first Republican to carry Michigan since 1988. He swept the Rust Belt states that have traditionally trended blue in a stunning victory on Nov. 8.

Green Party nominee Jill Stein has already filed for recounts in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and plans a similar effort in Michigan. She has 48 hours to file for a recount in Michigan where they would need to count by hand the nearly 4.8 million votes cast. Stein has raised $6.5 million, largely through small donations.

Clinton’s campaign said it will participate in recounts requested by Stein. The former secretary of State leads by more than 2 million votes nationally despite not reaching 270 electoral votes.

    QUICK RECOUNT IT. If it took this long, the Romulans or Klingons MUST be involved.

    Of course Clinton’s campaign wants to take part in the recount. If at first your cheating doesn’t succeed, cheat cheat again!

    We’ve been hearing all along that Hillary won the popular vote by 1 million votes…now according to this article the tally has been upped to 2 million votes…how did this happen?…Should we demand a recount?

    Funny why no one has reported the 3 million illegal votes made during the election, it was brought out before the election at the states that were working as fast as possible to issue ID cards to illegals! Why has this been shut up, OHHH, the MEDIA, and the black house gang!

      Don’t forget Snopes and Fact Check are in the tank with the liberal national news media, the Democrats and the left wing establishment in Washington DC…don’t expect them to investigate anything that might prove damaging to the Democratic Party or Hillary Clinton…that’s how they operate…they are at their best deceiving people from knowing the truth.

    I’m glad to hear Michigan has finally declared Mr. Trump to be the winner of their presidential contest. To his credit, President elect Trump has been busy picking his team. Lesser candidates would have allowed the delay in election results to put their work on hold.

    Hopefully these recount attempts by Clinton and Stein will prove that the original counts were accurate.

      Ballot recounts are never accurate…you could hold recount after recount and get different numbers every time…Jill Stein is gaming the system hoping that by chance the numbers will swing in the direction of Hillary Clinton…However if the numbers being recounted are in Hillary’s favor this would give proof that our election system is greatly flawed with inaccuracies of the ballot count…If Trump wins the recounts it will put egg on the faces of Jill Stein, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party…Let us hope for the latter.

    The media never asked Hillary if SHE would accept the results.

    That’s because the media would be obliged to accept a negative result for Hillary too.
