Ironically, if Trump loses in a landslide on November 3, the GOP might wish that 20 of its senators had voted differently. "Turn on television, "Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid" he said.

The Trump campaign likened Mr. Biden's put-down to Hillary Clinton referring to Trump supporters as "deplorables" in 2016. The former USA vice president said that Trump has "legitimized North Korea" and "talked about his good buddy who's a thug" while Pyongyang now has "more capable missiles, able to reach US territory much more easily than [it] ever did before".

Mr Biden said Mr Trump had given up on containing the virus, while Mr Trump accused his rival of overstating the health crisis to scare Americans into voting for him.

Meanwhile, Indian-Americans have asserted that Democratic candidate Joe Biden, first as a US Senator and thereafter as the vice president, has a strong track record of helping the community.

After voting early in his home state of Florida yesterday, Trump raced through rallies in three states - North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin - where he promised the end of the coronavirus pandemic was in sight and said Biden would threaten jobs by pushing for more Covid-19 restrictions. So does voting. Join us and many other performers for a concert to support @JoeBiden, @KamalaHarris and Democrats down the ballot.

The United States set a single-day record of more than 84,000 new Covid-19 cases on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, with the spike in infections hitting election swing states Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

There has been record early voting in the USA election with 53 million people already having voted, largely because of fears over Covid-19. Trump cast his ballot at a library in West Palm Beach, near his Mar-a-Lago resort, after switching his permanent residence and voter registration past year from NY to Florida, a must-win battleground for his re-election bid. "We can and should be natural allies", Biden wrote in the op-ed. "We have 10 days, and nothing worries me", he said. At an outdoor, in-person Trump rally in Circleville, Ohio, the crowd booed at a video Trump played showing various times when Biden said he would like to move away from fossil fuels.

Former president Barack Obama will campaign in Florida, making his second appearance on behalf of his former vice-president after a stop in Pennsylvania on Wednesday.

"The idea that somehow this White House has done anything but completely screw this thing up is nonsense", Obama told supporters at a drive-in rally in Miami, Florida.
