Conservatives spread false claim Biden invented ‘office’ of the president-elect | TheHill

Several prominent right-wing activists and conservative pundits have been pushing the false claim that Joe Biden invented the “office” of the president-elect or that he is the first incoming president ever to use the title. 

While there is no government office for the president-elect, the term has for decades been used by the media, politicians and the general public to describe the winner of a presidential election before they take office.
