The election clearly was not a peaceful ordeal. Leading up to the election was ugly. The primaries were bad and the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was even uglier. The way the country divided over the issues has been truly disturbing.
And that spirit of division has not ended. It just keeps going. It has led to protests and riots and violence. Many people are calmly and respectfully speaking out against or for the results of the election, but that has not been the overwhelming response.
And now the recount has to be the perfect addition to the whole story. A third party candidate who has practically no voice or votes is demanding a recount. Jill Stein’s recount in Michigan is almost laughable. It is obviously a ploy to pull in more publicity. And it is working.
The New York Post has reported recently showing us Donald Trump’s perspective on the issue.
The Trump campaign has filed an objection to Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s recount request in Michigan.
The state’s “voters should not risk having the Electoral College door knocked off its hinges all because a 1% candidate is dissatisfied with the election’s outcome,” reads the objection, according to the Detroit Free Press.
“Given her tiny vote total, (Green Party presidential candidate Jill) Stein does not and could not possibly allege a good faith belief that she may have won the state of Michigan,” the objection states.
The recount, scheduled to start Friday, is partly funded by Stein.
Finally, Donald Trump is saying something about this. Her vote count really was so small it seems obvious that she has ulterior motives. And Jill Stein is definitely receiving the publicity for her actions. More people know her name now than they ever have, but is that a good thing? For me, my opinion of the candidate has definitely not improved.
