Joe Biden says he would be willing to meet with President Donald Trump at the White House if invited, the Washington Examiner said citing a pool report.

“Of course I would, if he asked,” Biden said Tuesday.

While it is customary for the incumbent president to invite his successor to the White House, Trump has refused to concede the election with lawsuits pending in several states contesting the results.

While then-president Barack Obama met with Trump two days after the 2016 election, George H.W. Bush hosted Bill Clinton two weeks after the election in 1992.

And the last time election results were disputed, in 2000 when then-Vice President Al Gore challenged results in Florida, the Supreme Court did not settle the matter until Dec. 12.

Clinton hosted then-President-elect George W. Bush on Dec. 19, one day after the Electoral College voted to make Bush president.

The Examiner said the last time Trump and Biden spoke to one another outside of their two debates in the fall was in April during a private conversation about the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The conversation, it said, reportedly occurred after then-White House adviser Kellyanne Conway suggested Biden could "call the White House today and offer some support" rather than incessantly offering criticism.
