Trump has not conceded.
“It’s clear that, certainly based on what we know now, that Joe Biden is the president-elect,” DeWine said in an interview that aired Sunday on Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” on CNN.
Multiple media outlets reported that Trump’s tweet on Monday morning came 40 minutes after Fox News aired a clip of DeWine’s interview.

DeWine also said in his interview that he remains a supporter of the president and that Trump has the right to legally contest the election results. However, the governor said the administration needs to begin the transition process with Biden’s team.
“For the country’s sake, it’s important for a normal transition to start through,” DeWine said.
