(AP) – White House press secretary is describing Monday’s Electoral College vote confirming Joe Biden as the nation’s next president as just “one step in the constitutional process.” Her assessment is the latest example of White House officials declining to accept Biden’s victory.
McEnany was asked Tuesday by reporters whether President Donald Trump now considers Biden to be the president-elect and whether he plans to invite him to the White House. She declined to provide such an acknowledgement. Instead she said, “the president is still involved in ongoing litigation related to the election.
Monday’s vote was one step in the constitutional process, so I will leave that to him and refer you to the campaign for more on that litigation.”
