Michigan Finally Declares WINNER In Presidential Election
Michigan has finally declared President-Elect Donald Trump the winner over Hillary Clinton, according to the Associated Press. Even though Trump won the state's 16 electoral votes by over 13,000 votes, the delay came as the state waited until today to certify the results, according to GOP USA.
Recount requests are expected, though. Hillary this weekend joined a push for recounts in several key states, according to CNN, as she made a last-ditch effort to secure the victory she conceded to Trump early in the morning on Nov. 9.
Trump denounced the effort, saying, "The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, 'We must accept this result and then look to the future.'"
He also called the recount efforts led by failed Green Party candidate Jill Stein "a scam."
This announcement comes on the heels of multiple reports of death threats made against a Michigan elector, even though he's legally bound to vote for Trump at the Dec. 18 Electoral College.
Arizona and Georgia, which do not require their electors to cast their ballots for the candidate their voters voted for, are also reporting a flood of threats and complaints directed at electors.
