WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald Trump continued to speak out about the election on Twitter on Sunday after Green Party officials filed for a recount in Wisconsin on Friday.
The Green Party launched the effort after reports of possible voting discrepancies in areas that used paper ballots as opposed to those where electronic voting took place.
On Saturday, Trump called it “ridiculous” and a “scam.”
On Sunday, Trump claimed he won the popular vote “if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”
Trump also said it would have been “much easier” to win the “so-called popular vote” if the Electoral College didn’t exist.
Trump has also said the recount effort was nothing but a fundraising ploy by the Green Party and its nominee, Jill Stein.
Stein has raised more than $5 million for the recount in Wisconsin, which might begin sometime next week.
The Hillary Clinton campaign and the White House have said they see no evidence that any voting systems were hacked.
Even so, Clinton’s campaign said Saturday it will join Stein and take part in the recounts.
Trump said Clinton conceded the election and “nothing will change.”
