A flabbergasted Sean Duffy on Tuesday said he doesn't understand why Donald Trump cares about the popular vote or state recounts and had a message for the president-elect — "Let it go!"

"I don't understand why Mr. Trump is kind of sitting back and talking about the election that he actually won," Duffy said on CNN's "New Day" program. "Winners don't want to call into question the results. Winners want to go, 'I won, let's move on and let's govern.' Why he's engaging in what Hillary Clinton is doing and Jill Stein is doing, I don't get it."

The Wisconsin Republican criticized the recount movement in his state, accusing Stein and Clinton of "wasting our county's time and resources." Duffy said it was a "fair and free election.

"Everyone should accept them — Jill Stein, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump," Duffy told CNN. "I don't think it behooves the American people or the American electorate to sit and cast stones at what happened on November 8th. Let it go!"

Duffy, who has criticized Trump's tweeting before, disagrees with the tack Trump is taking, alleging voter fraud in three states.

"I think he should chastise Hillary Clinton for engaging with Jill Stein," Duffy told CNN. "I don't think he should call into question the vote totals that he might argue gave him the full total of electoral votes."

Duffy said without knowing for sure, Trump's motivation for harping on the popular vote is probably linked to being offended by the recount.

"I'm not in the room or I'm not on his Twitter feed, but I would think that he's offended by what's happening in Wisconsin and potentially in Michigan," Duffy said. "If you're going to call into question states that aren't going to flip from Trump to Hillary Clinton because there's too many votes there, maybe he's trying to call into question the fact that he won the popular vote."
