Green Party candidate Jill Stein is scheduled to hold a press conference and rally outside Trump Tower in New York on Monday, defending her push for recounts in several states.

“We won’t stand down as Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpZuckerberg launches public defense of Facebook as attacks mount Trump leaning toward keeping a couple hundred troops in eastern Syria: report Warren says making Israel aid conditional on settlement building is 'on the table' MORE and his allies seek to frivolously obstruct the legal processes set up to ensure we have a voting system we can trust and that all votes have been counted,” Stein said in a statement released Saturday.

Stein filed for a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, traditionally blue states where Trump narrowly won this year.

Trump and his lawyers have filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan to try to block Stein’s recount effort, while one of his super PACs filed to stop the recount in Wisconsin.

"Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania's electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College," Trump’s lawyers wrote in the complaint filed in Pennsylvania.

Stein has insisted that the recount is a non-partisan effort to ensure the integrity of the voting process, while Trump has called the effort a “scam.”
