Trump calls Jill Stein's recount bid a "scam"

ANI  |  Washington D.C. [United States] 

U.S. president-elect Donald Trump has dismissed a recount effort by the Green Party candidate Jill Stein as a "scam".

"This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn't even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount," CNN quoted Trump, as saying in a statement released by his transition team on Saturday afternoon.

"This is a scam by the Green Party for an that has already been conceded, and the of this should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing," he added.

More than USD 5 million has been raised by Stein in recent days after asking supporters to help fund recounts in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Clinton's campaign said earlier on Saturday that it would cooperate with the Green Party candidate's effort.

campaign general counsel Marc Elias said in a blog post that they themselves have not planned to exercise this option as they have not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology.

He said they will join Stein's effort to make sure the vote count is fair to all sides.
