This is bound to put a serious dent into the Jill Stein-Hillary Clinton recount plot.
The AP just reported…
BREAKING: Michigan certifies Donald Trump as winner of state’s 16 electoral votes with recount request expected.

What does this mean? Jill Stein will still try to push her recount drive at the behest of the Clinton machine, but this certification of Trump’s win makes Stein’s recount initiative even more dubious, devious and difficult.
–while WI and PA recounts are underway, it seems like an even longer shot for ‘Jillary’ to start recount in Michigan even though she is expected to ask for a recount (and has until Wednesday).
Trump would have seven days to file objections to her request.
The AP reports…
The Board of State Canvassers certified Trump’s 10,704-vote victory on Monday, nearly three weeks after the election.
The two-tenths of a percentage point margin out of nearly 4.8 million votes is the closest presidential race in Michigan in more than 75 years.
Trump’s win in Michigan gives the Republican 306 electoral votes to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s 232.
Trump is the first Republican presidential nominee to win Michigan since 1988.
The electoral votes go to Trump bringing his total to 306.
Until today, Michigan was never called by the mainstream media. We can now paint Michigan red.
