Trump insists on his attacks on Biden and Harris: “We will not have a socialist president” | Senate Judiciary Committee approves Trump’s candidate for Supreme Court
There are 11 days until the presidential elections in the United States and more than 50 million people have already voted. The figure represents 37% of the total votes in 2016. More than 6.3 million voters have exercised their right in Texas, which opened the polls for early voting on Monday. Another two million did so in the state of Florida, which enabled voting by mail last week. The balance of the vote has been tipped primarily by Democrats. The Florida figures showed that of the total votes 1.1 million correspond to people registered with the Democratic Party, while the Republicans have barely reached about 681,000 voters. Democrats began an intense campaign to mobilize the vote by mail since August, when Donald Trump accused, without proof, the postal service (USPS, for its acronym in English) of being fraudulent.
Donald Trump visited the Palm Beach, Florida library this morning to vote. At the doors of the library several dozen supporters have come to applaud him. “I voted for a guy named Trump,” he said as he left the voting center. Afterward, he will travel to Ohio and Wisconsin for a couple of rallies. Also in Florida will be former President Barack Obama holding a rally in favor of the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden. Obama will be north of Miami at an event where Biden supporters will listen to him from their cars.
The Senate moves forward with President Donald Trump’s proposal for Supreme Court. The Judicial Committee of the legislative body approved Thursday, only with the vote of Republicans, Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve as the highest judicial court in the country. While the Democratic senators who make up that commission have tried to boycott the vote. The approval leaves the way free to take it next week to the plenary session for the last confirmation.
