There has been no formal communication between Joe Biden and President Trump today, a person close to Biden said.
Biden didn’t mention the President in his remarks here, even as he extended an olive branch to Trump supporters and pledged to be the president for all Americans – whether they voted for him or not.
But Biden’s tone was unmistakable today – he did not aggressively go after the President or talk about him in a mocking tone as he often did on the campaign trail. He did not attack him on Twitter. A positive tone was set – even as they put teams of lawyers in place to prepare to challenge Trump’s lawsuits.
If tradition holds, the two men will have to talk at some point – when a winner is known.
The Biden campaign says that if that time comes, they know how to reach Trump – they still have the number of the White House.
