A voter recount has cost Trump $3 Million, according to The Daily Wire.
Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said, “I promised that this would be a transparent and fair process, and it was. There was an examination of every ballot by election workers, a meticulous recounting of every ballot that was properly cast, a transparent process that allowed the public to observe, a fair process that allows the aggrieved candidate who sought the recount an opportunity to observe and object to ballots they believe should not be counted.”
Rick Baas said, “It is important for people to understand how their government works. A recount is just that: a recount. Now, there’s evidence that will be taken to another level and it will be reviewed there, but this body has conducted itself in a manner that is exemplary.”
“We were not the rest of the country. We did not have yelling, screaming, shouting. We had counsel that could make an articulate argument. We’ve done the best we can do given the circumstances that we’re under.”
Jim Troupis said, “Our democracy depends on fair and impartial elections that fully adhere to the Constitution and state statute. We continue to be confident that when all of the legal ballots are counted and illegal ballots are not counted, President Trump will be proven the winner.”
Trump’s team claims that there were “illegally altered absentee ballots, illegally issued absentee ballots, and “illegal advice given by government officials allowing Wisconsin’s Voter ID laws to be circumvented.”
“In Wisconsin, you all said I was going to lose — or the polls said — certain polls: Washington Post, ABC — said I was going to lose by 17 points. Think of how dishonest. I thought I was going to win it. And essentially, I did win it. It’s very, very close. It’s very, very close.”
From The Daily Wire:
Rick Baas, the only Republican on the three-member Board of Canvassers, said he thinks the Trump campaign “is looking forward to its day in court.”

On Nov. 19, the Trump campaign requested a recount in two Wisconsin counties.
Milwaukee and Dane — were chosen because they are the sites with “the worst irregularities,” the campaign said, adding that they have transferred $3 million to Wisconsin to cover the cost of the recounts.
Trump continues to insist that he won the state. “Look at what’s going on in Wisconsin. Wisconsin, they’re finding tremendous discrepancy. You just take a look at that. Tremendous discrepancy,” the president said on Thanksgiving.
