He’s Not The President Elect, He’s Joe Biden…

Sen. Lind­sey Gra­ham (R‑S.C.), the head of the Sen­ate Judi­cia­ry Com­mit­tee, not­ed that Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is still the pres­i­dent and that Joe Biden is not offi­cial­ly the “president-elect”—as some news out­lets have described him—until Trump con­cedes or states have cer­ti­fied the result and court cas­es have been dismissed.

Gra­ham told the Wall Street Journal’s Lind­say Wise on Tues­day that peo­ple should col­lec­tive­ly refer to a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date as “pres­i­dent-elect” only if “Trump con­cedes or the court cas­es have been dis­missed and the states certified.”

The South Car­oli­na Repub­li­can said that if Trump does not con­cede and the states cer­ti­fy the elec­tion, “[it’s] enough” to call Biden the president-elect.

“If there is no con­ces­sion there is a con­test,” Gra­ham added. “If there is a con­test in court and the par­ty los­es, that’s the end of the con­test. There is no way to over­turn a elec­tion oth­er than a court of law.”
