Trump and Biden campaign across the country from each other


0

Las vigas President Donald Trump paid a rare visit to the church on Sunday as he and his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, campaigned across the country from each other in key states as the November 3 election approaches.

Trump was attending a mass at the non-religious Las Vegas International Church before raising money in Newport Beach, California, and holding an evening rally in Carson City, Nevada. Biden’s schedule set him up in North Carolina to attend a voter mobilization event in Durham and a virtual meeting with religious leaders of African descent. In the morning, he prayed at a church in Wilmington, Delaware.

For Trump, it was back to the church he visited as a candidate in October 2016. At that time, he received prayers on stage and toured an affiliated Christian school, saw students and made notes about alternatives to traditional public schools.

Biden went to St.Joseph in Brandywine, as he does nearly every week. He and his wife, Jill, walked in, wearing dark face masks. She was carrying a bouquet of flowers that included pink roses.

The church is a few minutes’ drive from Biden’s home. Biden’s son, who died of brain cancer in 2015, was buried in a cemetery on its grounds. Joe and Jill Biden visited the grave after service.

If elected, Biden would be the second Roman Catholic president in US history and the first since John F. Kennedy. Biden talks a lot about his faith and his importance in his life.

Trump attends church less often, but he has garnered strong support from white evangelical leaders and frequently hosts groups of pastors in the White House.

Lagging behind in national and pivotal battlefield polls with just over two weeks until Election Day, Trump has maintained a more robust timeline since returning to the campaign after contracting the coronavirus.

Trump enters the final phase of the election campaign with a significant financial advantage – an extremely unusual predicament for the incumbent. After building a huge cash advantage early in the race, his campaign was spent lavishly. Biden has kept expenditures low and has benefited from the influx of donations that have brought him close to $ 1 billion over the past three months.
