Last day before US elections: Trump and Biden hold rallies in swing states

President Trump held his first rally of the day in North Carolina. He spoke for more than an hour in the town of Fayetteville. In his speech, he criticized the US Supreme Court, which has ruled that North Carolina and Pennsylvania may also include post votes received after election day. The president will visit Pennsylvania around this time, then visit two other swing states: Wisconsin and Michigan. Challenger Joe Biden visits fewer states, but also has a full schedule. His first rally of the day was held in Cleveland, Ohio. He now travels on to Pennsylvania, where he has organized three meetings. Both states went to Trump in 2016.

Twitter will place warnings on tweets that prematurely claim results about the US elections. These are messages that become widespread and claim victory before official results are known. According to Twitter, official results are when at least two national media independently declare a winner or election officials publish results. In practice, this will include messages from President Trump and presidential candidate Joe Biden and their campaigns, as well as tweets from other US politicians and users with more than 100,000 followers. The social medium will also place a disclaimer on tweets about premature election results that are liked or retweeted more than 25,000 times



At a rally in Florida earlier today, President Trump suggested that he might fire Anthony Fauci, his chief corona adviser, if he is reelected. The public at his rally in Miami shouted “Fire Fauci!” A number of times, to which the president responded with the words, “Don’t tell anyone, just let me wait for something after the election. I appreciate the advice.” Trump and Fauci regularly clash over the right approach to the pandemic. In the United States, more than 230,000 people have died from the corona virus.
