After the election most US citizens probably thought the cut-throat campaigns and political drama was over. But what this past week has shown us is that we are nowhere near the end of this drama. What first sparked new drama was an attempt by the President-elect to gather unity in this country. Prior to this many Hillary Clinton supporters were protesting as they felt her win of the popular vote deserved her election of president. With this in mind Donald Trump took to twitter to “unify” the country. In his outlandish claims he said, “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally”  He later on he tweeted, “Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!” As if this was not enough Jill Stein, Green Party Nominee, has raised 5 million dollars in a recount in Wisconsin and is preparing to request for a recount in Michigan and Pennsylvania. On CNN Anderson Cooper asked Jill Stein if she has any evidence of voter fraud and she responded with no. She then said that her team believes that if there were to be voter fraud that it would come from the three states. This may seem insignificant but this has given Hillary supporters from all over a glimmer of hope that Hillary Clinton will be our next President. These two claims by Trump and Stein are raising hopes and expectations for all Hillary supporters. But this glimmer should be dismissed hillary. According to CNN, “There is essentially zero chance that the recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania will change Trump’s lead, which number in the thousands, not hundreds, in all three states.” We do not know how people will act when they discover that a Trump presidency is inevitable, but we do know that it will happen. These recounts may seem beneficial. They appear to be just a quick check. But in reality they just are false hope for disgruntled voters.
