On being asked whether he intends to answer Trump incase the incumbent president declares victory before final counting, he said, "It depends on what he says and how he says it."

"Presidents can’t determine what votes counted or not counted and, you know, voters determine who is president," Biden said.

"No matter what he does or what he says, the votes are going to be counted", CNN quoted him as saying.
