US ELECTIONS highlights: US President Donald Trump has accused his rival and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden of being a corrupt career politician who has done nothing but betray the Americans for the last 47 years.
Trump is known to make unsubstantiated allegations against his rival, often making untrue claims. There is no evidence of Biden ever being tainted by corruption. Addressing a rally in Rochster in Minnesota on Friday, Trump, 74, said Biden has obsession for power.
“Biden is a grimy, sleazy and corrupt career politician who has done nothing but betrayed you for 47 long years. He will look you in the eyes, and then turn right around and stab you in the back. The only thing he cares about is political power,” Trump said.
Meanwhile, as part of their last leg of campaigning, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden focused on seeking support in the vital Midwestern states where Covid-19 once again took centre-stage. Biden highlighted Trump’s constant ignorance and the failure to handle the ongoing pandemic while the president focused on reviving the economy. Trump through his speeches has made it clear that more lockdowns due to coronavirus are not an option anymore.
The focus on Midwestern region is crucial as in 2016, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, three historically democratic states narrowly voted for Trump. As of now, in the national opinion polls by Reuters Biden leads Trump 52% to 42%.
