If you thought Donald Trump would soften his tone over the holidays, well, you thought wrong. The President-elect unleashed one of his trademark tweetstorms on Sunday morning, this time taking aim at Jill Stein’s election recount, which Clinton’s camp has openly supported

This marked the second time that Trump publicly slammed Stein’s recount efforts, which began after she filed a petition in Wisconsin on Friday. That same day, Trump called the recount a scam perpetrated by the Green Party to “fill up their coffers.”

On Sunday, Trump warned Americans praying for different results not to get their hopes up. “Nothing will change” he wrote. Trump also devoted entire tweets to rehashing remarks Clinton made during the final presidential debate, after Trump infamously said that he might not accept the election results. 

“That’s horrifying. That’s not the way our democracy works. We’ve been around 240 years,” Clinton said at the time. “We’ve had free and fair elections and we’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. President Obama said the other day that when you’re whining before the game is even finished it just shows you’re not even up to doing the job.”

Trump also quoted Clinton’s concession speech for good measure, when she said that “Trump is going to be our President,” and that “We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.”
