Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) appears to ignore a phone call from President Trump in video of him certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the state.

Arizona certified the state’s election results on Monday, officially awarding Biden its 11 electors. Trump has refused to concede, and his legal team was at the time levying unfounded claims of voter fraud in the state.

Video shared to Twitter by 12 News KPNX reporter Brahm Resnik shows Ducey getting and silencing a phone call as he deals with the official paperwork.

According to Resnik, “Hail to The Chief” is Ducey's official White House ringtone. The governor reportedly said in July that he changed the ringtone so that he would not miss a call from Trump or Vice President Pence.

Trump later called into a hearing with state Republicans that was happening during the certification, according to Resnik. The president tore into Ducey, accusing him of rushing to get Sen.-elect Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) to the Senate.

Trump also claimed there was “no way” he lost the Grand Canyon State.

“Arizona will not forget what Ducey just did,” he said. “I’m watching it, and a lot of people are watching it.”
