After Donald Trump's victory on winning the 2016 US Presidential election, Jill Stein from Green Party raised money to continue the vote counts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Hillary Clinton supported the recount.

Green Party raised almost $6 million in donations last November 25. Petition was filed to Wisconsin Elections Commission to recount the votes on Wisconsin. Clinton's legal team confirmed that they will join the said recount.

A report from CNN, the general counsel of the Clinton's campaign, Marc Elias, stated that they will join the recount and assure that everything will be fair in all manners. He further added about the discrepancies of votes in Wisconsin; the reason why Green Party filed for a recount last Friday. The state's election board approved the party's request.

The former Republican candidate, Donald Trump, says that the people has already spoken and the election is already over. He added that people should just accept the result and look at the future, after Clinton conceded during the election night. In another report, Trump called the recount as "ridiculous," and tweeted about the Green Party's "scam" as Stein was trying to raise money to support the recount.

"In addition to winniting the Electoral College landslide; I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally," the United States President-Elect tweeted again last Sunday. However, there is no evidence to prove that this might be true, according to The Telegraph,

Recently, Jobs & Hire also reported regarding Clinton and Trump's popular vote in which the Democratic candidate is winning and the gap between the two is over 1.5 million. As of now, the popular vote gap is still increasing, and is expected to expand to more than 2.5 million.
