Trump aide blasts ‘sore losers’ over Wisconsin recount

An aide to President-elect Donald Trump lashed out at Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Saturday for participating in a recount of Wisconsin’s presidential vote tallies.

{mosads}“What a pack of sore losers,” Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s former campaign manager and a top adviser on his transition team, told Bloomberg.

“After asking Mr. Trump and his team a million times on the trail, ‘Will HE accept the election results?’ it turns out Team Hillary and their new BFF Jill Stein can’t accept reality,” Conway added.

Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential nominee, filed for a recount in Wisconsin on Friday and has vowed to do the same in Pennsylvania and Michigan, citing concerns that voting systems in those states were not secure.

On Saturday, the Clinton campaign’s general counsel Marc Elias said the campaign would be participating in the recount to ensure it had legal representation, though he noted that they had found no evidence of tampering in the voting process.

“Rather than adhere to the tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well, they’ve opted to waste millions of dollars and dismiss the democratic process,” Conway said. “The people have spoken. Time to listen up.”
