CNN projects Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States.

President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday said the election is over and called the recount effort launched by the Green Party and joined by the Clinton campaign a “scam.” “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,'”

President-elect Trump said in a statement, which labeled the recount “ridiculous” in a headline. Mr. Trump said he won Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvanian by “large numbers” and noted his margin of more than 70,000 in Pennsylvania. “This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the Green Party’s presidential nominee.

Read Mr. Trump’s full statement on the Green Party recount request:

“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.’

“It is important to point out that with the help of millions of voters across the country, we won 306 electoral votes on Election Day – the most of any Republican since 1988 – and we carried nine of 13 battleground states, 30 of 50 states, and more than 2,600 counties nationwide – the most since President Ronald Reagan in 1984.

“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount. All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes.

“This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing.”

    Good point on the money scam by Stein. I think she raised 10 times the amount of money in 1 week on this scam than she raised in the entire campaign. What makes this scam funny is that she showed again what a bunch of mindless fools Leftists are and how easily they can be scammed by Leftist elites. How are they going to pay for all that Play-doh and safety pins if they spend it on this?

    And this issue surprises who? Stein is a puppet for Clinton and the Dems. They will try anything to slow the electoral college down by using these flaky tactics. The money fronted is either by Soros or The Clinton Foundation. There was no Russian hacking or alien interference in this election. I guess they will pick up a few votes but there are allot of votes to over come Trumps lead. I can’t see the election results being changed

    Hillary is just trying to figure out a way to cheat her way again! Bernie voters were thought of as fools by her and they just followed in line just like Bernie. Bernie followers are probably protesting for her too. What a sad bunch of fools.
