Gillum Claps Back At Trump Over Florida Governor Race: 'You Sound Nervous'
Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum hit Donald Trump right where it hurts after the president tweeted that recounts in Florida should end—ultimately declaring Gillum’s Republican opponent the governor-elect.
“You sound nervous,” Gillum tweeted in response.
Gillum, the Democratic candidate, withdrew his concession Saturday in his race against Rep. Ron DeSantis, after the secretary of state declared a recount.

The state is also recounting ballots in the Senate race between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson. Trump was not here for it.
“The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” he tweeted on Monday. “An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”
The results of the recount are due on Thursday.
