President Donald Trump implored supporters in Nevada on Sunday to cast ballots early in a state he narrowly lost in 2016, while DemocratJoe Biden urged North Carolina residents to "go vote today," as the final presidential debate looms later this week.
"Early voting is under way, so get out and vote." U.S. President Donald Trump rallied his supporters in Carson City, Nevada on Sunday as the road to the November 3 election goes into its final stretch.
According to the U.S. Elections Project at the University of Florida, nearly 28 million Americans have already cast ballots either by mail or in person.
At an earlier rally in North Carolina, another key battleground state, Democratic opponent Joe Biden criticized Trump for saying that the U.S. had "turned the corner" in the pandemic.
"Trump said at one of his rallies, 'We've turned the corner.'
As my grandfather would say, 'This guy's gone around the bend if he thinks we've turned the corner.'" Biden instead noted that new cases across the country had risen to their highest level in months.
But despite having recently recovered from the coronavirus himself, Trump mocked Biden on Sunday for his cautious approach to the pandemic.
"If I listened totally to the scientists we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression, instead of we are like a rocket ship, take a look at the numbers." The second presidential debate last week was canceled after Trump pulled out of the event, which organizers had decided would be virtual after the president's COVID-19 diagnosis.

A flu shot might do more than protect against the flu virus, according to researchers at the University of Florida's School of Public Health. In fact, they say it might also shield some people from a severe case of COVID-19 — even though the infection is caused by an entirely different virus. Story: https://wfts.tv/3oYmZfB

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday (local time) defended the selection of Amy Coney Barrett as the next Justice for Supreme Court, saying that Republicans won the election, therefore they have the right to choose her. "We won the elections and it has consequences. We have the Senate and we have the White House. She (Barrett) is respected by all. Some of her biggest endorsers are very liberal people," Trump said during the first presidential debate. "She is good in every way. She is fantastic. She will be as good as anyone that has served the Supreme Court. We won the elections and we have every right to elect her," he added. Rebutting Trump's arguments over Barrett's selection, Democratic nominee Joe Biden said that they should wait for the outcome of the elections and advised against going ahead with Barrett's selection. "The American people have a right to say who the Supreme court nominee should be because they vote for Senate and President. They will not get a chance now because we are in the middle of an election already. The thing which should happen is that we should wait for the election's outcome," Biden said. Last week, Biden had urged the Senate to fill the vacancy of Supreme Court Justice only after the next President is elected. The seat of the Justice of Supreme Court became vacant following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg who has been regarded as an iconic champion of women's rights and a history-making jurist passed away at the age of 87. Besides today, there will be two more debates between Biden and Trump -- October 15 in Miami and October 22 in Nashville, following which a single round for their running mates.
