After the winner of the 2020 presidential election was called on Saturday morning, President Donald Trump still has yet to concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden, instead arguing about voter fraud without producing any substantial evidence.

Melania Trump is following her husband’s lead in disregarding the typical post-election concession process. The first lady has yet to call Jill Biden, her soon-to-be successor in the East Wing.

While president-elect Biden is readying his policy plans for his first 100 days as president, Dr. Biden is working with her own staff to set an agenda as first lady. Jill says she plans to focus on education, veterans’ support and cancer.

“Dr. Biden is enormously grateful to the country for electing her husband and Senator Harris. Joe Biden will be a President for all Americans. She is spending time with her children and grandchildren in Wilmington, Delaware. Dr. Biden is focused on building her team and developing her priorities focused on education, military families and veterans, and cancer,” the doctor’s spokesperson Michael LaRosa told the Daily Mail.

As Second Lady, Jill headed the organization Joining Forces with Michelle Obama, an initiative that focused on providing employment, education and wellness to military families. It’s unclear if she plans to revive the initiative or create a new program entirely.

Jill also said that she hopes to balance her job as the first lady with her outside job as a teacher, which would make her the first first lady to hold onto an outside job with their husband in office.
