President Donald Trump seems to have wasted $3 million for recounts in two counties in Wisconsin, with President-elect Joe Biden gaining more votes.

The $3 million were spent for recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties.

Milwaukee recount ended on Friday with Biden adding 132 more votes over Trump and Dane county will wrap up its recount on Sunday. So far, President Trump has picked up only 68 new votes there.

The millions of dollars could have been better spent on food bank at a time millions of Americans are running out of food because Mr. Trump and his Republican colleagues have refused to pass a new stimulus bill.

Mr. Trump hoped that the recounts in the largely two Democratic counties will show he won the state, but things have not gone his way so far.

The Milwaukee journal sentinel put it this way: “Milwaukee County’s recount of the presidential election vote tally came to an end Friday, with Democratic President-elect Joe Biden adding 132 votes to his margin of victory over President Donald Trump in Milwaukee County.  

“In all, Biden gained 257 votes and Trump added 125. The results came Friday evening, seven days after the effort to recount nearly 460,000 ballots cast in the county began at the downtown Wisconsin Center. The final tally totaled 459,723.

“Before the recount, Biden had 317,270 votes in Milwaukee County to Trump’s 134,357. The recount boosted the totals to 317,527 for Biden and 134,482 for Trump.”

Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada have all certified their election results for Joe Biden, and a Republican lawsuit seeking to block certification of results in Wisconsin is pending in the state’s Supreme Court.

State election officials must certify the election results on Tuesday by law.
