Clarification: Hillary Clinton in 2016 conceded the presidential election to Donald Trump on Election Night, Nov. 8, 2016. It was Green Party candidate Jill Stein who requested a recount in several states who later dropped the bid. Some House Democrats also objected to the results during the official Electoral College vote tally in January 2017. Then-Vice President Joe Biden did not entertain any of the objections.
