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 TrumpHouse Republicans move to block Yemen war-powers votes for rest of Congress Trump says he's considering 10 to 12 contenders for chief of staff Michael Flynn asks judge to spare him from jail time 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.”
