You’d agree that Republicans are notorious for suppressing the vote, yes? The fewer votes, the better for Republicans (America’s gen-pop is Democrat). A large tactic by Trump was acting like an ass, then painting Hillary as someone you simply couldn’t vote for. It wasn’t inspiring to voters. As for the recount, if people want to pay for the paper votes to be manually be recounted, why not let it happen? Is it “a threat to our democracy”? That’s the Democrat line, so tread lightly. If the recount happens, it confirms what happened, then everyone moves on. Easy.
