Does it matter if Donald Trump never concedes?

If Donald Trump never concedes that Joe Biden won the presidential election of 2020, would it matter?

In the fever dreams that disturbed the sleep of liberals over the past four years, it mattered a great deal. The fear of Trump’s incipient dictatorship haunted Democrats so deeply that many caught themselves wondering whether the would-be authoritarian in the White House would refuse to step down in the face of an electoral repudiation, disregarding the outcome of a democratic vote and attempting to maintain his grip on power through tyrannical means.

Now that the country has lived through just such a repudiation and the president’s rhetorical refusal to accept the results, most appear to recognize that the country isn’t in quite the danger they supposed it was.
