The original claim was "Trump wins the presidential election in 2020." This
seems to me to be the intent of the claim -- the winning of the election,
not all the possible, impossible, and imaginary scenarios that may take
place later.

I personally think that the whole discussion of who is or isn't legally
president on a certain day in 2021 is beside the point IF the original
intent of the claim was about the election itself -- i.e. the will of the
American people etc etc -- and not about legal shenanigans. And the way you
measure who has won a presidential election is by the Electoral College
counts presented to Congress. (And if you're worried that there's a chance
the results may be delayed, then push the deadline way back, because saying
that a candidate hasn't won because the results aren't in sounds strange to
me.)

If, however, the claim proposer is more interested in who is in office on
Feb 1st, regardless of the election, then we should remove the election
aspect entirely, and determine some other way that we will decide what
counts as being the "President of the USA."

I think tying the two parts together is what's generating all the
discussion.
