President Donald Trump is still in denial about having lost the 2020 presidential election — but Republican officials throughout the country are slowly coming around to acknowledging reality.
During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, Republican Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine was asked whether he believed that President-elect Joe Biden had prevailed over Trump last week.
“Look, I think that we need to consider the former vice president as the president-elect,” he said. “Joe Biden is president-elect.”
DeWine acknowledged that Trump and his legal team had every right to challenge the results in a court of law — but he did not sound optimistic about the president’s chances of overturning the results.
