After having voted in advance in Florida in the morning, the American president was then to follow up meetings in two other states of capital importance for the election of November 3, Ohio and Wisconsin.
Donald Trump showed unfailing enthusiasm this Saturday in the hope of catching up on Joe Biden, who criticized him for his management of the pandemic and received the reinforcement of former President Barack Obama during the ‘a campaign day of rare intensity.
The 44th American president, still very popular among the Democrats, did not spare his successor, amid the sounds of horns which have now replaced applause: “This pandemic would have been difficult to manage for any president”, “but the idea that this White House did anything other than screw up is absurd ”. “Donald Trump is not going to suddenly protect us all. He is not even able to take basic precautions to protect himself, ”he quipped.
“This election is a choice between a super recovery Trump or a Biden depression,” launched the American president 10 days before the poll in sunny North Carolina to a convinced public, highlighting his own recovery from Covid-19 to promise a rapid economic recovery. Full of energy after having voted early in Florida in the morning – “for a guy called Trump” -, he then had to chain meetings in two other states of paramount importance for the election of November 3, the Ohio and Wisconsin.
“The polls are much better than four years ago. Moreover, they are approaching dangerously, ”assured the former 74-year-old businessman who took over the campaign at a frantic pace after his hospitalization. And regardless of the toll of more than 224,000 deaths from Covid-19 in the United States, the record of around 80,000 new cases of coronavirus recorded the day before or the attacks of the Democrats, the tenant of the White House wants to be optimistic. “They want to depress you,” he told the crowd.
“This is the Trump presidency,” supported Joe Biden, on the contrary, who, after a hiatus of nearly a week, returned to the ground in his native Pennsylvania, whose vote is particularly expected after the surprise victory of the current president in 2016. “Yesterday was the worst day we have had, but again Thursday evening, during the debate, Donald Trump said and continues to say that we are at the end of the tunnel, that (the virus) is going away. goes and that we will learn to live with. I told him that we don’t learn to live with it, but that he asks us to die with it, ”he said on a stage decorated with Halloween pumpkins in front of supporters who came by car.
“On November 4, we won’t hear more about it!”
“Covid, Covid, Covid … On November 4, we will not hear any more about it!”, He had swept from North Carolina, ensuring once again that the increase in the number of cases was due to the multiplication tests performed. “On the one hand it’s good, but on the other it’s silly,” he said.
Like more than 55 million voters who have already voted early before November 3, the billionaire fulfilled his civic duty early in the morning from a library in West Palm Beach, near his property in Mar-a-Lago, his tax residence since leaving New York, where he was booed four years ago when it came time to vote.
“You are going to be very busy today, we are going to make you work very hard,” he told reporters at the start of a long day of campaigning across four states. The ex-real estate mogul has promised to step up the pace in the home stretch again by going to five meetings a day.
The polls still give Joe Biden an average eight point lead nationally, with a smaller advantage in key states. But Donald Trump seems to benefit from a slight thrill in Florida, which he cannot afford to lose if he wants to be re-elected.
