US President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday said he would be open to meeting with incumbent President Donald Trump as part of the transition, The Hill reported.
"Of course I would, if he asked," Biden told reporters when asked if he would meet with Trump.
The White House declined to comment on the record about whether there had been any outreach to Biden's team about a meeting.
Outgoing presidents have traditionally welcomed their successors into the White House to offer support in the transition between administrations.
Trump has yet to concede the race more than two weeks after Biden was projected the winner by all major news networks and as states begin certifying their presidential election results. He has instead sowed doubt about the outcome and spread claims about voter fraud.
Trump and Biden have not met in person since the final presidential debate in late October. The two men spoke on the phone early in the coronavirus pandemic. Trump described that conversation as "warm" and "friendly."
The inauguration of the next US President is slated for January 20, 2021.
