Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who had warned that the November election may be rigged, says that she and her supporters do not consent to Donald Trump’s regime of hate, fear, and corruption.

“In 2017, let’s occupy, resist, and build power against the right-wing extremists, bigots, and blowhards,” Stein said Monday in her message.

She asked people of America to help her kick off the resistance in January at Occupy Inauguration campaign to disrupt the Inauguration Day ceremony of Trump.

“We will oppose oligarchy with democracy. And we will build an unstoppable movement whose time has come, to put people, planet, and peace over profit,” Stein said.

“On January 20th, we will join thousands of people and organizations from around the country in Washington DC to Occupy Inauguration – sending a message to Trump that we reject his illegitimate presidency from the very start,” Stein added.

The firebrand politician Stein is spearheading a massive campaign to highlight the flaws in the U.S. election system.

Republican candidate Donald Trump won the election by defeating his rival Hillary Clinton. However, Stein believes that the Trump’s election was not fair, as the U.S. voting system is totally flawed.

Among a slew of activities to block Trump presidency, she has approached the U.S. Department of Justice through her attorney demanding a probe in the election process.

Stein’s attorney has written a letter to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch, asking for an investigation into the integrity of the U.S. election system generally, and the voting machines specifically.

Although Trump received majority of the 538 state-by-state electoral votes to win the presidency, his rival Hillary Clinton won 48.2% of the popular vote compared with 46.1% for Trump.

In other words, Clinton got nearly 3 million more votes than what Trump got in the November election. But the U.S. election system declared Trump as the winner.

“The 2016 Presidential election has left our nation reeling,” Stein said.
