Trump blasts Florida vote recount decision

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to slam the Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner's decision to recount the Senate and the governor votes in the state. The president accused Detzner of trying to "steal" the victory from the Republicans. Trump tweeted: "Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida! We are watching closely!"

A machine vote recount will be used to calculate the results for both the governor and the Senate races between GOP Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum, and between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Bill Nelson respectively.

On Thursday, the campaign of Democrat Andrew Gillum, who already conceded defeat to his Republican opponent DeSantis, hinted at the possibility of asking for a recount if late ballots reduce the margin between the two candidates below the current 43,000 votes or 0.6 percentage points.
