Hillary Clinton shocked many this weekend when she announced she is joining Green Party candidate Jill Stein in calling for a recount of the votes in Michigan in Pennsylvania. Now, Donald Trump has broken his silence about Clinton’s decision, and he didn’t hold anything back.
It’s ironic that Clinton once predicted that Trump would never accept the result if she lost, when now it is her who is doing that…
Donald Trump launched into a furious Twitter rant Sunday morning, calling Hillary Clinton a hypocrite for joining Jill Stein’s call for recounts in three key election states.
Clinton’s team said on Saturday that it would be part of a recount initiated by Stein in Wisconsin, and would support recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Trump responded Sunday morning with a six-tweet-long screed in which he held up Clinton quotes from before and after the election, in which she called his own similar remarks about election recounts ‘horrifying.’
At around 7am EST, Trump tweeted: ‘Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change.’
Then, an hour later, came the six-tweet message in which he initially quoted Clinton’s remarks from the third presidential debate.
‘Hillary’s debate answer on delay: “That is horrifying. That is not the way our democracy works. Been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections.
‘”We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on – a during a general election.
‘”I, for one, am appalled that somebody that is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position.”‘
Trump then paraphrased a remark she made in a rally speech after the debate.
‘Then, separately she stated, “He said something truly horrifying … he refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. That is a direct threat to our democracy.”‘
Finally, he quoted from her acceptance speech after losing the Electoral College vote.
‘She then said, “We have to accept the results and look to the future, Donald Trump is going to be our President. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”
‘So much time and money will be spent – same result!’ he concluded. ‘Sad.’
