President-elect Donald Trump, who’s spending the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, is tweeting his disapproval this morning of Hillary Clinton‘s participation in Jill Stein‘s Midwestern recount effort.

 

On Twitter this morning, Trump says "nothing will change" in a recount.

On Twitter this morning, Trump says “nothing will change” in a recount.

Trump on Saturday called Stein’s effort to recount ballots in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania “ridiculous” and a “scam.” But Trump didn’t directly blast Clinton even after her campaign general counsel said the Clinton camp would take part in Stein’s push.

 

On his Twitter account this morning, Trump has been highlighting Clinton’s past calls to accept the election results.

 

“Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change,” Trump tweeted at 7:19 a.m.

 

In subsequent tweets, Trump quoted Clinton from an Oct. 19 debate saying it was “horrifying” not to pledge to accept the election results. Clinton gave that response after Trump — trailing in polls at the time — was asked if he’d accept the outcome and said he’d “look at it.”

 

Trump also quoted Clinton’s Nov. 9 concession speech, in which she told her supporters that Trump would be president and “we owe him an open mind and  the chance to lead.”

 

After quoting Clinton, Trump told Twitter followers that, in a recount, “So much time and money will be spent – same result! Sad.”
