>> This is not the outcome we wanted.>> With Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote approaching two and a half million and with a potential three state recount in the works, Donald Trump lashing back in the way he knows best. Trump launching a series of tweets Sunday starting with this.

Trump's tweets coming after Clinton's legal team said on Saturday it would participate in a recount of Wisconsin votes, prompted by Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Stein also pushing for recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania, citing some computer scientists and election lawyers, who say hacking may have affected the results.
