With Election Day starting in less than 36 hours, President Trump ended a day of campaign marathon with a late-night rally in Miami, with crowds shouting “Fire Fatsi.” Democratic opponent Joe Biden spent last Sunday before the election focused on Pennsylvania, where polls gave Biden an edge, but Mr. Trump insisted he would continue.
Mr. Trump will campaign Monday in Scranton, Biden’s hometown. Biden, Jill Biden, Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emfoff will storm the state on Monday, and the Biden campaign added a trip to Cleveland, Ohio, to its Election Eve program. Former President Obama will campaign for Biden in Georgia and Florida on Monday.
In Miami, Mr. Trump said of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, “don’t tell anyone, but let me wait until shortly after the election.” He further added that Fauci was “very wrong”. The White House targeted Fauci on Sunday, offering a stern warning in a recent interview about what Americans face in the winter months.
The Miami Rally expanded after the city was closed to traffic at midnight to stop the spread of COVID-19, and Biden’s campaign dismissed it as one of Mr. Trump’s possible rallies.
Mr. Trump spent Sunday zigzagging in swinging states on the East Coast, rallying in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. During a campaign in Dubok, Iowa, Mr. Trump sought to promote the idea that the results should be announced. Election Night.
“We need to know the outcome of the November 3 election,” Trump said. “The afternoon of November 3. This is the way it was and it should be. What is happening in this country? What is happening?”
More than 92 Americans have already voted nationally. With so many US ballots in the mail, there could be delays in counting the ballots in some states.
