Donald Trump Gets Hit With Some Bad News Following Judge’s Decision

As the state of Michigan gears up for a recount of the ballots cast in the 2016 presidential election, Green Party candidate Jill Stein appeared on CNN to reiterate her position. Even though the recount is not expected to change the results, Stein firmly believes it's necessary.

Stein appeared on CNN and said that President Elect Donald Trump is 'scared' of a recount. "They're doing everything they can to stop transparency and accountability," said Stein. "You would think that they would be confident in their victory, you would think that they would support the democratic process."

Stein believes every election should have automatic audits to confirm results, and she advocates 'getting rid of very disaster-prone, tamper-prone, hacking-prone electronic touchscreen machines.'

Of all the states, Michigan won by the narrowest margin. In 5.5 million ballots, Trump won by just under 10,000 votes, beating Hillary Clinton by just two-tenths of a percent. Her party also filed in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, though the recount request in Pennsylvania was withdrawn.

Stein also spoke Monday morning at a Recount Rally held in front of Trump Tower in New York City.

“Trump must stop trying to suppress the vote and will of the people. A full, accurate hand recount and a forensic audit of the electronic voting machines is a key step towards restoring the rights of individuals that been marginalized and disenfranchised for too long,” Stein said. “These things are the bedrock of our democracy.”
