Here is CurrentHow’s Daily Briefing™ for the 27th of November, 2016 :-
1. Donald Trump dismisses recount efforts, saying : “The recount is ridiculous” :-
President-elect Donald Trump ripped the election recount on Saturday, calling it “a scam” and “ridiculous” and noting that Hillary Clinton had already conceded.
Trump charged in a statement that the effort was nothing but a fundraising ploy by the Green Party and its nominee, Jill Stein.
“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount,” the President-elect said in a statement, which labeled the effort as “ridiculous” in a headline.
On Saturday night, Trump tweeted, “The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems.”
Stein has already raised more than $5 million online for the recount in Wisconsin, which may begin some time next week.
Trump said, “The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.'”
“This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing,” Trump said.
Just hours after he issued his statement, Trump launched into one of his trademark tweetstorms Sunday morning, reiterating his points.
“Hillary Clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. Nothing will change,” he tweeted.
2. Nico Rosberg wins maiden world title :-
Nico Rosberg has clinched his first Formula One world title at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Rosberg came into the race with a 12-point lead over Hamilton and knew a podium finish would be enough to deny the Briton a third consecutive world crown.
