Trump Makes Compelling Case for Recount by Lying About Illegals Voting

Trump Makes Compelling Case for Recount by Lying About Illegals Voting

President elect Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by over 2.5 million ballots and yet, he won the Electoral College. Now Trump is fighting back against calls for a recount by Green Party candidate Jill Stein by cutting his nose despite his face.

Computer scientists have been warning about possible voting shenanigans going on in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania; providing evidence that the “vote totals in the three states could have been manipulated or hacked.”

Alex Halderman, director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society (CCSS) explained that there is reason to “believe there is a questionable trend of Clinton performing worse in counties that relied on electronic voting machines compared to paper ballots and optical scanners.”

In those three states Clinton lost to Trump by a 7% margin which is difficult to accomplish unless there was tampering involved. Furthermore, those states were highlighted by Trump as necessitating armed poll watchers to ensure no voter fraud took place.

Those two coincidences lend to the growing concern that there was voter manipulation used to make sure Trump was elected to the presidency.

Trump took to Twitter for a tirade against the recount that actually makes a compelling case for why we need one. First he lied to save face and then it was an all-out twitterstorm.

Trump’s wild lying rant included claims that illegal and undocumented immigrants voted by the millions to supposedly help Clinton’s chances and this somehow explains how Trump lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College.

The president elect’s thin-skinned tantrums on social media have called into question the integrity of the voting process that ensured his win and whether or not Trump knows it, his push back against recount efforts is simply defining the necessity of a recount.

Reflexive lying is what Trump excels at, but facts and evidence still matter. Politifact pointed out that the 3 million votes claim is a conspiracy theory created by Alex Jones to benefit the candidate he helped get into the Oval Office.

Jones falsely refers to a non-existent report on to prove his conspiracy, which makes Trump’s twitterstorm another baseless lie concocted by the alt-right to explain away the problem the president elect faces.

In the end, Trump appears to be concerned because Clinton’s campaign has agreed to join Stein in the recount “in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides.”
