Biden faces US voters at town hall as campaign heats up

Joe Biden and Donald Trump head to Minnesota

"And guys like Trump, who inherited everything and squandered what they inherited, are the people that I've always found a problem with - not the people who are busting their neck".

The White House adamantly denies Troye's allegations.

Republican Voters Against Trump is one of several groups trying to persuade Republicans and others who once supported the president to vote for Biden.

The "drive-in" event on Thursday was being held at PNC Field, home of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, the New York Yankees' Triple-A affiliate.

The broadcast was the first town hall-style event for Biden since he accepted the Democratic nomination last month, giving viewers a rare chance to see him answer live questions from people whose votes he hopes to win in November. Guess what? He suggested maybe we should move the election date, postpone the election, ' Biden said.

Olivia Troye was Pences former homeland security adviser and served as a member of the White Houses coronavirus task force. Trump is holding a rally in Wisconsin on Thursday night.

Public health officials, however, remain cautious about accelerated timelinePHILADELPHIA US President Donald Trump on Tuesday said a vaccine against the deadly coronavirus could be three or four weeks away, despite cautionary notes sounded by some US public health officials about that accelerated timeline.

He spoke about an election two years ahead, when COVID-19 will hopefully be on the wane.

Joe Biden has joined Senate Democrats for a conference call lunch and told them he is taking nothing for granted in the race for the White House and the down-ballot effort to wrest the Senates majority control from Republicans.


President Donald Trump has refused to say he will accept the election results.

Michigan Sen. Gary Peters says, You could tell hes really fired up and hes working hard and is going to be be out there and be much as he possibly can.

Biden is attempting to project a calming alternative to Trump's fury. Ben Cardin, was clear: Theyre ready. The president has focused his campaign on repeating that performance by aiming his messaging at the suburbs and rural communities.

Making his fifth visit to the pivotal battleground state this year, Trump views success in the states less-populated counties as critical to another term.

Mr. Biden said on Wednesday that he believes he would have the legal authority to issue some kind of executive order on mask-wearing but that he couldn't guarantee that he did.

Mr Trump diverted from his message at times to attack Democratic politicians, using racist language to criticise Elizabeth Warren, referencing Hillary Clinton's emails and hitting out at Mr Biden's running-mate, Kamala Harris.

For much of the summer, Biden held mostly virtual events from his home in DE, drawing criticism from Trump that he was "hiding". But he says his team has to stay prepared.

Biden and Trump will both travel to Minnesota on Friday, the first day of early voting there.
