US Election 2020: Biden and Trump make final pitches to voters

World

Washington – US President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden have spent the final hours of the White House race delivering their closing pitch to voters in critical states.

Biden campaigned in Pennsylvania and Ohio, while Trump toured the voting battlegrounds of Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

National polls suggest a firm lead for Biden in Tuesday’s election.

But his lead is narrower in the handful of states that could decide the result.

Nearly 99 million people have already cast their ballots in early voting, putting the country on course for its highest turnout in a century.

President Trump sprinted through four battleground states on Monday. In North Carolina, he told supporters that “next year will be the greatest economic year in the history of our country”.

Biden went to Pennsylvania where he was joined by singer Lady Gaga at a rally in Pittsburgh. Musician John Legend addressed voters with vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.

He also did a last-minute campaign stop in Ohio where he told voters that the race was about the soul of America, saying it was time for Trump to “pack his bags”, adding “we’re done with the tweets, anger, the hate, the failure, the irresponsibility”.
