The Latest report on the U.S presidential recount is that Trump’s campaign has filed an objection to Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s request for recount in Michigan.

According to the New York Post Documents states that “state’s voters should not risk having the Electoral College door knocked off its hinges all because a 1% candidate is dissatisfied with the election’s outcome.”

Trump’s campaign alleges that because Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein accumulated a small fraction of votes she could “not possibly allege a good faith belief that she may have won the state of Michigan.”

Stein had some choice words for Donald Trump’s campaign efforts to delay the recount process.

“Trump campaign’s cynical efforts to delay the recount and create unnecessary cost for taxpayers are shameful and outrageous,” Stein said.

Mark Brewer, one of Stein’s attorneys said that the “law is very clear that once a candidate files a petition, that the board shall conduct a recount.”

Friday seemed to have been the date schedule for the Michigan recount but Trump’s campaign objection has caused the recount to be delayed until next week. Which could possibly be unfavorable for the Green Party considering since the final tally needs to be finished by Dec. 13 according to federal regulations.

Jill Stein’s campaign party most fork over $973,250 in order to help finance the recount, which Hillary Clinton campaign is supporting as well.

Trump was declared to have won the state of Michigan by a 10,704-vote margin in which 4.8 million cast their vote.

Hillary’s campaign did not specified how they intend to support the effort, but they have posted a sign-up sheet on its site needing volunteers.
