The 74-year-old White House resident shows no signs of fatigue after hundreds of campaign meetings and travels more than 3,500 miles on Sunday – Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida.
On Monday, he will also attend five rallies – in four states.
“Four more years, four more years,” supporters of Donad Trump, gathered in four cities in Pennsylvania, chanted on Saturday.
The former real estate developer won against Hillary Clinon in 2016 in this former industrial stronghold, which could decide the fate of the November 3 elections.
The mask, at the center of the debate
In parallel, the first black president of the United States, Barack Obama, addressed the supporters of Democrat Joe Biden, gathered in a “drive-in” in Michigan, also a state considered essential in the elections.
“Everything is at stake on Tuesday,” said Barack Obama, who wore a “VOTE” mask, denouncing his successor’s management of covid-19 in the bloodiest pandemic country.
In front of his supporters – few of whom wore masks – the New York billionaire downplayed the severity of covid-19, of which he was ill.
In the Biden administration, “you will be prisoners in your own homes,” Trump predicted.
A total of 18 rallies by the US head of state led to – not necessarily between participants – more than 30,000 cases of coronavirus and more than 700 deaths from covid-19, according to estimates released Thursday by Stanford University, based on statistical modeling .
The number of new coronavirus infections continues to be very high in the United States – which has recorded 77,000 new cases in the last 24 hours, one day after a national “record” of 94,000 cases, according to a Johns Hopkins University report.
The United States is the most affected country both in terms of deaths due to covid-19 – 230,320 – and in the number of cases – 9,111,013.
At the other extreme of his opponent, Joe Biden scrupulously respects barrier gestures and precautions, so much so that he is accused by Donald Trump’s team – which raises questions about his physical and mental fitness – of “hiding in the basement.” “.
Will Michigan side with Democrats?
Joe Biden arrived, as if to answer these accusations, on the campaign stage in Flint, in a running step, wearing his famous “Aviator” sunglasses, to the music of Sir Duke and Stevie Wonder.
“The time has come for Donald Trump to pack his bags and return home,” the Democrat thundered.
The question, however, is whether more black voters will vote in Michigan than in 2016.
Four years ago, due to the small number of black voters who went to the polls, Michigan sided with Donald Trump – at least 11,000 votes more than Hillary Clinton.
The Biden-Obama couple then went to Detroit – the historic heart of the American auto industry and one of the poorest big cities in the United States, where almost 80% of the population is African American.
Melania Trump, campaigning in Wisconsin
This year, the former vice president is ahead of his rival by seven percentage points in the latest polls.
His running mate Kamala Harris went to Florida to urge voters to vote early in a state where Joe Biden seems able to contest the Republican victory.
Joe Biden’s campaign team announced that he would address the “nation” on election night – which Hillary Clinton did not do when she was defeated four years ago.
On the other hand, First Lady Melania Trump campaigned on Saturday in Wisconsin, and incumbent Vice President Mike Pence in North Carolina, where the two candidates are side by side.
Fears about “disorder” in the country
Like Donald Trump and Joe Biden, more than 90 million Americans – out of more than 230 million – have already voted early in the presidential election
As a result of the tension in the country, with the approach of the election, stores in several American cities – including New York and Washington – are barricading themselves for fear of demonstrations that could degenerate.
In the event of a tight race and a delay in the results, some fear that supporters of the two candidates could take to the streets to demand that the opponent give up.
“There will be disorder in our country,” Donald Trump predicted on Saturday.
He has repeatedly refused to say clearly whether he will give up peacefully in the event of a November 3 defeat.
CNN revealed on Saturday that several White House officials have been collaborating for several months – according to tradition – with Biden’s team for a possible transfer of power.
