— Wisconsin voters have been recounting ballots at the request of the FBI as it investigates the possible hacking of the 2016 presidential election.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted that he wanted the recounts to resume.
Wisconsin officials say they will ask the FBI to assist them in the process.
A spokesperson for the state’s election board said they are still working with the FBI on the recount process and are awaiting a decision on whether to file an appeal.
At a news conference, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the U.N. General Assembly has ordered the U and international community to take action against cyberattacks.
“The United States has an obligation to defend itself, to stand up for its democracy and to stand with the American people,” Sessions said.
“And I urge the international community, including the United Nations, to work with us to do that.”
A federal judge in Milwaukee ordered the recount to resume after a federal judge denied Wisconsin’s request.
The recount was halted last month by the U, the Justice Department and the state of Wisconsin after the FBI said the state was not able to produce enough physical evidence to support its claims of hacking.
Trump and his team have also questioned the integrity of the votes cast for Trump.
He has said that millions of people were turned away at polling places, and that the vote totals should have been closer.
