A reasonable business, or in Trump’s case ‘amatuer ‘ politician would let the facts speak for themselves, and keep a cool demeanor, then if facts show the original count was well within a statically acceptable margin, simply grin and move on, or eat humble pie when the time comes.
According to BR for all his concern about a “rigged” election, Trump doesn’t seem to care about any election rigging now that he’s won.
In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

In fact, he is so unconcerned about efforts to recount the votes in Pennsylvania that he and his lawyers filed a lawsuit to stop that recount. A complaint was filed in Pennsylvania, according to Politico, and it is just as demeaning and insulting as Trump himself.
‘Despite being no more than a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Pennsylvania’s electoral process, with an eye toward doing the same to the Electoral College […] There is no evidence — or even an allegation — that any tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting systems actually occurred.’
Donald Trump would really like the American public to believe that millions of votes – more than 2.37 million, the number by which Hillary Clinton is currently beating Trump in the popular vote – were cast illegally. He doesn’t want that investigated now that he’s won; the integrity of the voting system is unimportant to Trump unless he’s the one who feels cheated. His accusations are valid in Trumpland, but Stein’s concerns that voting machines may have been compromised by Russian hackers is just silly. A concern raised by a “winner” is surely important, but a concern raised by a “loser” is not.
The filing comes a day after Trump also filed a complaint in Michigan regarding a recount there in which Trump accused Dr. Stein of working on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Stein responded to that filing by saying that Trump was just muddying the waters and unnecessarily placing further strain on taxpayers in Michigan.
‘The recount in Michigan, which has been driven by an outpouring of grassroots support in the state — will go forward. The Michigan Board of State Canvassers and Director of Elections has been a model of professionalism in moving this recount forward in an efficient, transparent manner. Yet the Trump campaign’s cynical efforts to delay the recount and create unnecessary costs for taxpayers are shameful and outrageous.’
Considering that Trump’s entire campaign has been “shameful and outrageous,” this is just par for the course.
