Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden calls President Donald Trump a conman during an election campaign.
Biden said in Georgia that Trump’s handling of coronavirus amounted to a “capitulation”.
On the other hand, Trump blasted Joe Biden, warning in Michigan that its “economic survival” was on the line if Mr. Biden won. He kept saying the swing states that he gained victory in 2016.
What did Trump say?
Mr. Trump held rallies in Nebraska and two states he snatched from Democrats in 2016: Michigan and Wisconsin.
In Lansing, Michigan’s capital, he warned: “This election is a matter of economic survival for Michigan.”
He told suburban women, “Your husbands, they want to get back to work, right? We’re getting your husbands back to work.”
“It would be very, very proper and very nice if a winner were declared on November 3, instead of counting ballots for two weeks, which is totally inappropriate,” Mr. Trump told reporters before going to the Midwest.
Donald Trump is planning 11 rallies in the final two days of the election campaign before voting day.
He cast doubt on Mr. Biden’s claims that he could do a better job as president.
“Well, the American people can look at Joe Biden’s 36 years in Congress and eight years in the vice-presidency and determine whether they think he’ll finally be able to get something done for the American people.”
What did Biden say?
On the other hand, Mr. Biden promised to be “a president who doesn’t divide us, but unites us” and someone who could “heal this nation”.
He said this while having a trip to Warm Springs, Georgia.
He said, “Time and again throughout our history, we have seen the charlatans, the conmen, the phony populists – who have sought to play to our fears, appeal to our worst appetites, and pick at the oldest scabs we have for their own political gain.
“They appear when the nation has been hit the hardest and we’re at our most vulnerable. Never to solve anything. Always to benefit themselves.”
Biden once again Trump’s coronavirus handling. He said Mr. Trump had “shrugged. He’s swaggered. And he’s surrendered.”
