Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden in Florida: America Deserves Better Than Trump” – below is their description.
With Election Day just three weeks away, President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden concentrated Tuesday on battleground states both see as critical to clinching an Electoral College victory, tailoring their travel to best motivate voters who could cast potentially decisive ballots. Biden drew a racially and ethnically diverse crowd in Miramar, Florida where he held a drive-in rally designed to promote voter mobilization in the heavily African American community. He criticized Trump for a campaign ad that wrongly suggests that Dr. Anthony Fauci is in the president’s corner. In his second stop in Broward County, Florida, on Tuesday, Biden blasted Trump for “quoting Dr. Fauci out of context” after the president spent months downplaying the COVID-19 threat. Biden told hundreds of supporters at a drive-in rally in Miramar that “we are so much better than this.” Fauci, the federal government’s top infectious-disease expert, told CNN on Monday that the Trump campaign should take down the ad, calling it “really unfortunate and really disappointing that they did that.” The Democratic challenger is making a late push for Florida in hopes of cutting off Trump’s path to an Electoral College majority. Trump won Florida narrowly in 2016, and he likely needs the state again to win reelection. Biden spoke earlier Tuesday at a community center for seniors. Nonwhite voters are a key part of the Democratic base, while many older white voters can be swing voters in the perennial battleground state. His swing coincided with a $500,000 donation from billionaire former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg to increase Democratic turnout in Miami-Dade County. “I’m running as a proud Democrat, but I will govern as an American president,” Biden said to supporters blaring their horns as they listened from cars. “I’ll work as hard for those who vote against me as those who vote for me.” The president was staging an evening rally in Pennsylvania, Biden’s native state. Trump wants to hammer home the claim that a Democratic administration could limit fracking in areas where the economy is heavily dependent on energy. Biden has proposed only barring new leases on federal land, a fraction of U.S. fracking operations.Bloomberg QuickTake: Now YouTube Channel
