Eric Trump, the son of President-elect Donald Trump, asserted over the weekend that “at least 5,000 children” had died due to an effort to verify the election outcome in Wisconsin.
In a tweet on Sunday, Eric Trump said that the “sad truth” was that “the cost Of Stein/Clinton’s #Wisconsin vote recount could have saved at least 5,000 children’s lives.”
The tweet included a link to a Forbes column by conservative writer Chris Conover, who argues that Green Party candidate Jill Stein should have redirected the $3.5 million spent on the recount to malaria prevention for children.
