"I'd say to her: 'Give it up,'" Conway said on "Fox News Sunday."

"Even your friends in the Clinton campaign have admitted that these recounts will not change any results."

Conway added she is "astonished" that Stein is now the "favorite flavor of the left."

Stein has filed for presidential recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — three states Trump won after going blue in recent elections.

Trump said last month that a recount effort in three states would not change the results of the election.

He tweeted that Hillary Clinton called him before his election victory speech and after the results were in, adding that "nothing will change."

Stein has been defending her efforts to file for presidential recounts, saying that voters deserve to know the country has a system it can trust.
