President-elect Donald Trump broke his silence Saturday on the multi-state vote-recount effort led by Jill Stein and joined this weekend by Hillary Clinton, another failed 2016 White House candidate, calling the effort “ridiculous” and a scam.

Stein, the Green Party candidate, started the effort a couple of days ago to get recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — states that Trump surprisingly won.

Stein has raised $5.8 million toward her goal of $7 million and on Friday made her first official move — requesting a recount in Wisconsin.

“The people have spoken and the election is over,” Trump, a Republican, said Saturday. “We must accept this result and then look to the future. … “This recount is just a way for Jill Stein. … to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount.”

The Clinton campaign joined the effort, despite Clinton having already conceded the race.

    Jill Stein had no chance of winning the presidency. She should have known that. This is nothing more than an effort to cash in one more time off of her supporters. Even if all these states went for her on the recounts, she would still fall short of winning the presidency.

    • Anouk

      Jill Stein is just an opportunist and a fake.

  • Rodney Steward

    This is all about money for this Stein POS, and most of the so called money raised is probably Soros’s, he’s having more trouble copping with this election than Hellary, he$$ she’s been drunk on Tater Juice ever since the election!

  • Bob

    We can see that she kept her word to “accept the results of the election” as well as she kept her word about so many other things. I would hazard a guess that the recording of her vowing to accept the results was stored on her home server and will not be available for another 4 years.

    I call it “Deadly Serious.” The Electorates vote in December they are receiving death threats. That is serious business if you have ever received one or many as I have by Muslims then you understand. There are also many unscrupulous people among these Electorates and there is much money available for bribes. What should they care about this country if they get a few million and can leave with their families.

    The money came quickly because the Globalists are many and filthy rich they can’t loose this strangle hold and this almost there America. Don’t stop praying yet and the best thing that could happen is Hillary die.

    • Elaine

      With the long trail of corpses left behind by the Clintons, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that’s where the death threats are coming from.

      • Tiger

        Amen and I fear for Trump’s life or that of his children’s. They are ruthless people. Now we hear the Terrorist Training Camps in America gunning up expecting raids by the FBI as the cases against them will be reopened. This in our country, time to get them out.

        • Anouk

          Elaine, I have the same fear for Trump and his family.
          I pray every morning nothing happened to them.

          • Elaine

            You and me both, Anouk. The people who are anti-Trump aren’t just your average, everyday schmucks who are mad because their candidate lost. There are some vicious and very serious opponents who, I am afraid, will stop at nothing to get rid of him. I honestly believe that there are millions and millions of us who are praying every day for the safety of Trump, his family, and Pence and his family. I think God listened to our prayers for the election, so I hope he hears our prayers now, to protect our newly elected leaders. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/23cf0ea84cd3b19cb3a8c23331df3994c98ebe4d51cd83608c0bbc1e2c8ed187.jpg

          • Anouk

            Beautiful Elaine. Thank you.

          • Tiger

            We must continue to pray that is what called the Almighty to us.

        • Elaine

          OMGoodness! This is unbelievable … yet very believable considering the current leadership. We just want our America back. Please, Mr. Trump, clean up this mess and drain this swamp!

          • Tiger

            Going to be a huge job Elaine a huge job. These people are ruthless. They have so much at stake. They have lost so much and they won’t stop trying to take us down.

          • Elaine

            My son stopped by this morning, and we talked a little about the current state of affairs. He said “I can’t wait until January 21”. I hated to tell him “Sorry, son, but this is only the beginning.” It’s going to take decades to undo this poisonous and tangled web of lies, deceit and craving for power. Theor overwhelming desire to control justifies any means necessary to achieve it. It’s as if power is a drug and they are addicts. Yes, this is going to be a monumental task.

          • Tiger

            Yes Elaine you told it like it is. I have two sons and one daughter. My sons got it my daughter well somewhat.

        • Anouk

          Sorry Tiger, I meant to answer to your great post.
          God protect our President Elected and his family and Mike Pence and his family as well.
          I can’t wait for the 20th of January when Trump will be the President of United States of America.
          He is the most courageous man and the best Patriot who loves his country so much.
          I have a huge admiration for Donald Trump and for his wife and children who are brave enough to help America to be Great again.

          • Elaine

            Amen, Anouk. Amen.

          • Tiger

            Me also my friend I do respect him for this. He doesn’t need it neither do his children. To be fair I believe he realized even though they could all leave this country their way of life in this country was over if Hillary got in and continued down O’s path. Yet he chose to fight and he became mellow and he became to see Americans in a light he never saw them before, like nurses and doctors he felt their pain.

  • Pete

    I would not be surprised to see some Never Trump money involved in this Stein/Clinton recount effort. Romney & Co have pulled some truly underhanded stunts this election cycle & it wouldn’t surprise me at all to find that they have a part in this also.

  • Doodlebug

    If a recount was in order it should have been done immediately following the election. Hillary should never have conceded but should have taken a wait and see stance. If a recount was in order it should have been instituted by Hillary and the Democratic Party. As it stands Hillary has already conceded and having a shill do this on her behalf only punctuates her sad belief that she deserves to be president. Once you’ve thrown in the towel “man up”, take your lumps and move on down the road.

  • Jose

    Was it not hrc/dnc who kept saying that Trump should accept the results and to quit crying that it was rigged but now they are not willing to accept the results so who is being twofaced about it.

    It’s about time they dig a hole and shove that first lady president and douche bag down a hole and forget her ! She’s nothing but an un-indicted felon ! Now she’s afraid of not stealing enough from the American people, she wants more !!! “Onward Donald”

  • Jack Burns

    Hillary interprets kindness as weakness. Trump should never had made those comments about not prosecuting her until he was sworn in. He got nothing for being so kind to this Crime Family. Now perhaps he should backtrack a little suggesting that he will leave it up to his new AG to decide if she is prosecuted after all “I am not a lawyer”

    • Anouk

      I agree!

  • 1Orchard-1955Arthur Tompkins

    I guess it’s only a fair election if the Libs. win.

  • 1Orchard-1955Arthur Tompkins

    Here we go again. The Libs just cannot accept the results. They were anointed. In the words of Obama “we won”. Jill what’s her name wasn’t even in the running, and she wants a recount? Who is she shilling for?

  • bobnstuff

    Trump has been saying the election is rigid for months so you would think that he would be 100% behind a recount. I guess since he won, now the elections must be fair. Had he lost these recounts would have already been under way. Is it a bad thing to remove any shadow of a doubt. In the end he is still going to be President but if there is a problem we should know about it.

    • Frankie Boy

      Poor bob ! Sounds like a puke infested Liberal !!!

      • bobnstuff

        So you are afraid Trump will loose if there is a recount? It ia amazing just how fast the Trump people can change their tune. A few weeks ago it rigid now it’s not. Flip flop, just like Trump. Flip flop on all those promises. A fence not a wall, 2 million not 11 million, etc,

        • Frankie Boy

          It’s pointless to argue against a limp wrist fag !!!

          • bobnstuff

            I’m sorry I didn’t know you were Gay. I just thought you were a easily fooled Trump supporter.

          • Rodney Steward

            At least he wasn’t stupid enough to be fooled by a black man, now that’s BAD!

          • Pete

            Don’t play with it, it’s a defected entity.

    • Ted Crawford

      Go for it Comrade, as long as you use only your money NO Tax Payer money should be spent! You’ll find that cocooning yourself in your own little Progressive echo chamber has simply caused you to miss the fact that the majority of America ISN’T ready for your far left ideology!

      • bobnstuff

        Since I have most likely paid more in taxes then you have and have worked to elect more republicans then you have I think I have a valid voice here. Trump has flip flopped all over the place. He is backing off almost every promise he has made. Where are all the supper people he was getting to be part of his government? So far it looks like rewards for his supporters. To get a recount that isn’t automatic it has to be paid for by the person asking for it. That’s why the need $7 million dollars. I fear you are just a little clueless as to where people stand on things and what being left or right really means. Wall Street doesn’t support left wing candidates, never have. Clinton is a moderate, not a left winger. Sanders is left wing and he wasn’t in the November election. Remember just just because a talking head on Fox say it’s so doesn’t make it so. Trump should have no problem with this recount since it will most likely just say he won. As far as wasting tax dollars, how much did the waste trying to nail Clinton and come up empty every time.

        • Elaine

          Wall Street doesn’t support left wing candidates? Seriously?? Maybe you should read this article (one of many, many more) titled “Why Wall Street Loves Hillary”, then maybe rethink your position on that.
          http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/11/why-wall-street-loves-hillary-112782

          • bobnstuff

            As I said they don’t support left wing candidates so there for they didn’t believe her to be left wing. They know one of their own when they see them.

          • Elaine

            They don’t “believe” her to be left wing. Hmmm. Didn’t you hear Hillary herself say she has both “a public and a private position”? This, courtesy of Wikileaks. So … she tells Wall Street one thing, which of course they believe, and us a whole other thing, which people like you believe. She lies so much, how can you trust a single thing that comes out of her mouth? The fact remains that Wall Street contributed tremendously to Hillary’s campaign. Obviously, they believed whatever lies she told them … and she kept getting more and more money from them.

          • bobnstuff

            Trump campaign has been saying the same thing about Trump as if it is a good thing, he’s not as crazy in private they kept saying. He treats women with respect in private, etc. We didn’t need stolen emails to learn about the two Trumps. As far as lying Trump is the king. Here is the first good one, “I’m worth $10 billion dollars”. or “I will self finance my campaign”. How about ” I was against the war from the very beginning”. You must remember that he said that lying is OK in his books.

        • Ted Crawford

          You might be right, I’ve been paying taxes since 1963, so if you began earlier, depending on your tax preparations, perhaps you have paid more.
          You may also have worked to elect more Republicans than have I. I began my active political involvement in 1968, after I returned form my second tour in Vietnam, sadly as a Liberal Democrat. I didn’t became a Republican until 1973 and an Independent in May of 2016.
          Where you are clearly, even spectacularly wrong is with respect to Hillary!! She is as…moderate(????) as the Pope is a Baptist!!!
          Clearly you are paying NO attention to just who Trump is talking to! Romney, held the same position as did I “Never Trump” while I know nothing has been decided or at least announced there yet, Nikki Haley, was also opposed to Trumps candidacy, yet he’s offered her the UN Ambassadorship!

          • bobnstuff

            Haley is not qualified to be an Ambassador. I kind of like the women and putting her in a domestic post might work but as with most of the Trump cabinet she is wrong for the job. I have never been a big Clinton fan but I don’t trust Trump at all and his actions since the election hasn’t done anything to change things.

    • Elaine

      What makes you think the election WASN’T rigged? Has it even occurred to you that Trump won IN SPITE of the crookedness from the left? The few million illegals who voted … no doubt for Hillary? The few million dead people who voted … no doubt for Hillary? The 200,000 “Democrat” ex-cons whose voting rights were restored, and the 60,000 “Democrat” felons that Gov. McAuliffe released from prison just prior to the election… specifically to vote for Hillary? You really think Hillary actually won the popular vote fair and square? If you subtract all those illicit votes, Trump won the popular vote in a landslide. This “recount” crappola is nothing more than juvenile, immature sour grapes, and yet another way for Hillary and Jill Stein and their cohorts to bilk even MORE millions out of the pathetic suckers who keep sending it to them.

      • bobnstuff

        I invite you to look at some facts. There are only 11 million total illegals in the US and not all are old enough to vote so there is a limited number if illegals to vote. Now think about what it means to be illegal. The last thing you want is to draw attention to yourself which is why the crime rate for illegals is below average. Large numbers of illegals voting isn’t likely. Next dead people voting. You must be registered to vote so you must have some pretty good information to vote for a dead person. When you went to vote did you notice that they did just hand out ballets and there were people checking names. These people are poll workers and poll watchers. The workers job is to make sure the vote is honest and the watchers are from both parties to also protect the vote. You must get past these people to vote so you will need to be sure that they didn’t know the dead person and that you can pass for them. In person voter fraud is very rare for that very reason. Now look at the total number of voters and see that to have a 2% fraud rate means that one out of every fifty voters are frauds. I think the poll workers might be able to stop that kind of fraud.

        Under our justice system once a person has paid his debt to society they get back their rights. The right to vote is one of the constitutionally protected rights and shouldn’t be taken away. Besides what makes you think only democrats are felons? Trump probably got as many felons votes because of his support by racist groups.

        • Elaine

          Did you know that a woman working for Project Veritas went under cover, wearing a burka, and went to vote in New York City under the name of Huma Abedin? The woman working at the polls couldn’t find her name in the book of registered voters, so she couldn’t vote electronically. BUT, she then told “Huma” that she could vote using a paper ballot. So … don’t tell me about your “people checking names” and everything being on the up and up. And as far as the felons go, give this article a good serious read ….

          http://constitution.com/democrats-wanted-voters-convicted-criminals/

          • bobnstuff

            You do know that the poll worker did what the law says she should do, it’s called a provisional ballot which is held until the persons voting status can be proven. Only after she is checked out will the vote be counted and in this case it’s very unlikely it was counted. If this story is true then the person committed a felony and should end up in jail. It the same as robbing a bank to prove banks can be robbed, you go to jail either way.

    • Rodney Steward

      Total JERK, always saying something STUPID, he$$, I bet you couldn’t even get the dogs to play with you when you were young!! I still got your bullet when you want it!!

      • bobnstuff

        I see you are looking in the mirror again. Don’t shot yourself simply because your boy Trump is rolling over on everything he said. Anyone who trusted him to do what he said should be very upset right about now. It’s only going to get worse. I hope you can live after your head explodes but since you never us it you should be OK.

        • Rodney Steward

          He’s not going to roll over, you gotta faten up the chicken before you kill it! Another words, wait till the Whit house is cleaned out before you start kicking a$$! Good luck bobby, your life is about to change, no more free rides for you!!

          • bobnstuff

            He is already rolling over, look at his cabinet so far and tell me he’s working on draining the swamp. He Chief of staff is a long time party hack, his chief advisor is getting payback for working on his election and is a slime ball. His other appointments are unqualified and in most parts only getting the jobs as payback. What happened to getting the best people? You wall is now a fence and your 11 million illegals are now 2 million and dropping. He isn’t going after Clinton anymore. That’s just the short list of things he said that isn’t going to happen. You have been had. This is why I didn’t support my parties candidate.

          • Rodney Steward

            At least none are muslims, he’s cleaning those things out of the house!

          • bobnstuff

            No big old Muslims to scare little Ronny.

            He$$ boy, I’m looking forward to paying with them, aren’t you, it’s coming REAL soon bobby, they’ve been way to quiet! If you’re a good little boy and act like a goat you just might get to keep YO head!! 🙂

          • bobnstuff

            First amendment doesn’t count under Trump I guess. You really need to fear the Muslims though, They are different from you so be scared. Go hide under your bed.

          • Rodney Steward

            Yes they’re different, they love their little boys and girls, and we know how much they love their goats, and puss-an-boots, just act like that goat and you’ll have it made!! And I ain’t SKEERED!! 🙂
