Trump, Biden focus on battleground states
DETROIT (US) – By reaching out to seniors, President Donald Trump sought to bolster his support in Florida, a battleground state, on Friday. His rival Joe Biden flayed the president’s response to the pandemic during a tour of the swing state of Michigan.
The duo is focussing on the battleground states which will determine the winner of the Nov. 3 election. After spending the day in Florida, the president held a rally in Georgia, considered to be a Republican fortress.
Trump and the Republican National Committee raised $247.8 million in September, according to his campaign manager and is well behind the $383 million fetched by Biden and his Democratic Party.
During an indoor event attended by seniors in Fort Myers, Florida, Trump sympathised with those who lost family members to the pandemic.
“My heart breaks for every grieving family that has lost a precious loved one. I feel their anguish. I mourn their loss. I feel their pain,” said Trump.
“If I have the honour of becoming your president, we’ll build on the Affordable Care Act, no matter what they do,” Biden said during an event in Michigan.
