The outgoing Republican governor is running for U.S. Senate against Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson.
Trump took note of the involvement of Nelson's lawyer, Marc Elias, a Washington-based Democrat who represented Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential race and has handled recounts before, including one that sent comedian Al Franken to the Senate from Minnesota in 2008.
A hearing began just after 3 p.m. Friday.
As the Chairman of the political law practice Perkins Coie, Elias represents almost all of the Democratic senators, according to RollCall, and his firm also represents the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Democratic Governors' Association as a whole.
On Thursday, Scott and Senate Republicans filed a lawsuit demanding the recount be halted.

Meanwhile, in the Arizona Senate race, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema has pulled ahead of Republican Martha McSally by about 10,000 votes.

Bill Nelson. Scott declared victory in Tuesday's election, but Nelson has not conceded and ballot-counting continues.
The Senate race in Arizona between two U.S. congresswomen, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally, appeared days away from a final call with hundreds of thousands of ballots yet to be tallied.
Senator Nelson filed his own lawsuit on Friday against the Florida secretary of state in order to ensure all provisional and mail-in ballots that were initially disregarded due to signature mismatches are validated in the recount.
Many could be heard chanting, "Lock her up!" and "Bye bye, Brenda!" referencing Broward's supervisor of elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes, as they demanded election results.
For this and other reasons, lawyers for Nelson and Gillum chose to call on the state of Florida to honor its statutory obligation to perform a recount.
If Kemp wins less than 50% of the vote that would trigger an automatic runoff election in December.
All the complaining Trump, Scott and other Republicans are doing about ballots still being counted in heavily Democratic South Florida counties is either based on ignorance of the process or a deliberate effort to mislead the public, Elias added. In a call with reporters on Friday, Elias jokingly thanked Scott for the free publicity.
