For the past few days, the media have been buzzing over former Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s campaign to force a recount in three swing states (Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan) and the millions of dollars she has raised to accomplish this goal.
President-elect Donald Trump hasn’t been too pleased about this (understandably), and went on a Twitter rant on Sunday pointing out the blatant hypocrisy of the Clinton campaign getting on board with this recount, as well as pointing out a flaw in the popular vote totals.
Trump tweeted a series of quotes made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calling him out for suggesting that he wouldn’t immediately accept the results of the election, as well as a quote from Clinton during her acceptance speech saying that Trump won and it was time to move on.
Trump also tweeted that he could have won the popular vote without the “millions” of illegal votes.
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

“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.
“Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!” he also wrote.

Trump offered no proof to support his claim of illegal voting (something CNN and the other media folks were more than happy to point out), but it is pretty clear that he was referring to reports that came out before the election that there were illegal aliens and dead people on the voting roles in various states.
In fact, Judicial Watch reported on Oct. 24 that in eight Virginia counties alone there were 1,046 illegals on the voting roles — a fact which raised questions as to how many illegals were on the statewide voting roles.
At this point everyone needs to accept that Trump won the election, and move on. Lingering over unproven allegations of voter fraud all around the country is no way to heal after such a divisive general election campaign.
These voting recounts will not change the results of the election. All they will do is postpone Trump’s ability to bring America together again.
