President-elect Donald Trump continued to criticize Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s latest vote recount effort on Sunday.

“So much time and money will be spent – same result!” said Trump on Sunday at the end of a string of tweets arguing against the recount. “Sad,” he added.

The president-elect is slamming the Green Party’s attempt, now being supported by Hillary Clinton’s campaign team, to recount the vote in three states.

Trump called the recount effort a “scam” in a tweet he wrote on Saturday, saying the Green Party is filling up its coffers “by asking for impossible recounts” that  “is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems.”

Stein has raised nearly $6 million in order  to recount the vote in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — all states where Clinton narrowly lost to Trump.

On Saturday, Clinton shared an article on Twitter written by her campaign’s lawyer Mark E. Elias —  in which he explained that Clinton’s team plans to participate in the recount now that the process has been initiated in Wisconsin in order to ensure a “fair” process.

As of now, Clinton won the popular vote by roughly two million votes.

“It is important to point out that with the help of millions of voters across the country, we won 306 electoral votes on Election Day– the most of any Republican since 1988– and we carried nine of 13 battleground states, 30 of 50 states, and more than 2,600 counties nationwide – the most since President Ronald Reagan in 1984,” Trump also said in a statement.

Here is Trump’s string of Twitter messages that he shared on Saturday into Sunday regarding recount efforts:
