WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Miller noted that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had already conceded election defeat to Trump.
"So much oxygen has been given to the recount effort where there is absolutely no chance of the results changing… this is a conceded election," Miller told reporters.Stein launched a multimillion dollar crowdfunding campaign to finance recounts in the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which Trump won by narrow margins. The Green Party officially requested a recount in Wisconsin on Saturday.
Miller alleged that Stein and the Green Party were using the recount as an excuse to fundraise for the party.
To become US president, a candidate must win at least 270 electoral votes, a threshold Trump exceeded by at least 20, with a few states’ tabulations still to be finalized. Clinton received 232 electoral votes.
