Sen. Roy Blunt repeatedly declined to refer to Joe Biden as the “president-elect” on Sunday, despite acknowledgments from some fellow Senate Republicans colleagues who have recognized the former vice president’s electoral win.
“Well, we’re certainly moving forward as if that what is going to happen on January the 20th,” the Missouri Republican said when asked by CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” whether Biden was the president-elect.
Blunt referred to President Donald Trump as “president-elect” in a statement released the day after the 2016 election where he congratulated Trump on his win over Hillary Clinton.
They all fear getting death threats from the cultists.
