"Joe Biden is a corrupt politician, and he's compromised,...
    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told Breitbart News that a “massive surge” of migrants would seek to illegally immigrate to America if Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden becomes president. Cotton highlighted Biden’s promise during Thursday’s presidential debate to extend a “pathway to citizens” to illegal aliens. “Joe Biden’s answers on immigration showed just how truly radical the Democratic Party has become,” Cotton said in an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. “This is now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty. Joe Biden said he’s going to send, in his first hundred days, a pathway-to-citizenship bill.” Cotton continued, “That’s a big shift where the Democrats were just eight years ago. Remember the terrible so-called Gang of eight bill. It too would give a big amnesty and increase legal immigration by a lot, but at least it felt the need to make a gesture towards...
    President Donald Trump went on the attack against Joe Biden at his first campaign rally after their presidential debate, calling his rival a 'liar' and 'corrupt politician.' He started off hitting his Democratic rival on his oil policy. 'This is probably the most shocking division ever made,' Trump said. 'Could be one of the worst mistakes' in presidential political history, he argued.   Biden's pledge to 'transition away from the oil industry' shook up that energy sector, leaving the Democratic nominee to try and clarify his stance, saying he would transit it out 'over time.'  The president argued it would hurt Biden in some of the Midwest states both candidates are courting. 'Texas are you watching. Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Ohio are you watching,' he said. Pennsylvania and Ohio are critical states for winning the White House. Democrats are also making a play for Texas, which has been trending blue.   President Trump at...
    Chris Wallace admitted he’s “jealous” over Kristen Welker’s steadfast performance moderating the final presidential debate Thursday night. The NBC News host was cheered for her ability to keep both President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in line on the debate stage, following the disastrous first debate, which Wallace moderated. “Well, first of all, I’m jealous,” Wallace said on Fox News’ post-debate coverage. “I would have liked to have been able to moderate that debate and to get a real exchange of views instead of hundreds of interruptions.” Wallace got flak for failing to rein in the candidates during the Sept. 29 debate, which devolved into both politicians talking over each other. The veteran Fox News anchor said he “never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did.” Welker’s strong showing even garnered praise from Trump himself, who paused while answering a question to tell...

    JOE BIDEN defended his son Beau during the first televised presidential debate ahead of November's election. But who is Beau and how old was he when he died? 7Joe Biden opened up about the connection he had with his late son Beau, left, who died in May 2015Credit: AFP - Getty Who was Beau Biden? Born as Joseph R Biden III on February 3, 1969, Beau Biden was the eldest of Joe Biden and his first wife Neilia Biden's three children. He served for two terms as the former attorney general of Delaware and as a Major in the Delaware Army National Guard. In 2014, Beau announced plans to run for governor of Delaware in 2016. He nearly followed his father's footsteps in 2010 when he mulled over a run for the US Senate, but was sidelined by a mild stroke. Beau married Hallie Olivere in 2002. The...
    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden promised the largest amnesty in United States history at Thursday night’s presidential debate, telling Americans that they “owe” illegal aliens a pathway to American citizenship. “Within 100 days, I’m going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people,” Biden said. “And all of those so-called DREAMers, those DACA kids, they’re going to be immediately certified to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship.” “We owe them, we owe them,” Biden said, referring to illegal aliens in the U.S. Biden’s immigration plan would give 11 to 22 million illegal aliens a pathway to American citizenship. Biden’s plan also would free future border crossers into the country while they await immigration hearings, give taxpayer-funded healthcare to illegal aliens, and restart welfare-dependent legal immigration. Providing taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens would likely drive up costs...
    The second and final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden struck a markedly different and more civil tone since last month's chaotic debate that prompted a rules change to mute candidates' microphones.[ READ: Trump Is Running Out of Time – and Arguments – to Beat Joe Biden ]Thursday's debate in Nashville featured increasingly sharp exchanges between Trump and Biden on issues ranging from the coronavirus, Russia, China and taxes but had very few interruptions. It was the first time the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates implemented a system that would mute a candidate's microphone for the first two minutes while his opponent responded to a question, though they were unmuted after that time to allow them to engage with one another.

    President Trump gave a nod to his outsider status in Washington, D.C., during the final presidential debate, telling his Democrat challenger Joe Biden that he motivated him to first run for office in 2016. "Joe, I ran because of you. I ran because of Barack Obama because you did a poor job. If I thought you did a good job, I would have never run," Trump said during the second and final presidential debate on Thursday. Biden and Trump discussed criminal justice reform, one of the president's strong suits during his administration, before Trump jumped on Biden's proposals of what he would do if he's elected president. Trump accused Biden of making empty promises and not doing anything while he was actually in office. "You were the vice president," Trump said. "You keep talking about all these things you’re going to do, and you’re going to do...
    Given the chaos of the first presidential debate, CNN’s Jake Tapper reacted to the second and final one Thursday night by saying that President Donald Trump “behaved more like a regular person.” He said many Trump supporters and Republican office-holders “can relax for the night,” because even though “he did lie like Pinocchio,” he “didn’t set himself on fire tonight like he did at the first debate.” “It’s fair to say President Trump got in a couple of clean hits when it came to Vice President Biden, when it came to the 1994 crime bill, when it came to Joe Biden being in politics for so wrong. He probably even fed raw meat to his base sucessfully using Breitbart, Fox lingo that most voters have no idea what he’s talking about. He got those shots in there, however based in reality they are,” Tapper said. The overall problem for...
    President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden started off their final presidential debate on Thursday without interrupting each other but disagreeing on the coronavirus pandemic in a head-to-head match with a dramatically different tone from their first one. The microphones of each candidate were muted for the first two minutes of their response and that moment of discipline, put in place by the Commission on Presidential Debates after Trump repeatedly interrupted Biden in their first meeting, carried through the first segment of the debate. But the two men disagreed with one another on the coronavirus – the topic of the first segment – with Biden repeatedly criticizing Trump's handling of the pandemic that has killed more than 200,000 Americans. 'Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain president of the United States of America,' Biden said. President Trump cited his own experience with the virus and...
    Joe Biden was the first to interrupt his rival during the debate Thursday when he accused that President Donald Trump's faed money for farmers came from American taxpayers and not China. NBC News' Kristen Welker, who moderated the final planned debate less than two weeks before the election, asked Trump what he is going to do to make China pay for transgressions against the U.S. 'China is paying, they're paying billions and billions of dollars. I just have $28 billion to our farmers –' Trump said more than half-an-hour into the debate – and then the first interruption was issued. 'Taxpayer's money,' Biden claimed. Trump paused and looked at the former vice president with his mouth agape. 'It's what?' he asked. 'Taxpayer's money. It didn't come from China,' Biden repeated. 'No, no, yeah, you know the taxpayers – it's called China,' Trump said. Biden assured: 'Not true.' Democratic nominee...
    The second and final presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden is underway in Nashville, with the candidates looking to make a closing argument in prime-time, less than two weeks out from Election Day. Both men have had a chance to regroup following a raucous first debate last month in Cleveland, with a rematch originally scheduled for last week scrapped in the wake of Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis, leading instead to dueling solo town hall events. In an attempt to help moderator and NBC News journalist Kristen Welker maintain control, the Commission on Presidential Debates has announced that each candidate will have his mic muted during his opponent’s initial, two-minute response to a new topic. But the debate promises to be just as fiery as the first tilt, if not more, with Trump poised to hammer Biden on The Post’s reporting about the overseas business dealings of his...
    Getty/Twitter Neilia Hunter Biden (r) was the first wife of Joe Biden. The tragedy of Joe Biden’s first wife Neilia Hunter Biden is a key part of Biden’s biography. Over the years, the former vice president has spoken openly about the terrible car crash that killed his wife Neilia, their 1-year-old daughter Naomi, and injured their two sons, Hunter and Biden. Biden was not in the car when the crash occurred. However, what caused Neilia Hunter Biden’s car crash? Over the years, conflicting statements have arisen, including from Biden himself. The evidence shows that the accident was not caused by drunk driving. Biden would go on to marry his current wife, Jill. With her, he had another daughter. The family dealt with renewed tragedy when Beau Biden died at 46-years-old from brain cancer. The other surviving son, Hunter, has been the focal point of controversies during his dad’s...

A graduate of Georgetown University and Yale Law School, Hunter Biden has enjoyed a variety jobs, from being a policy director in the Clinton administration to founding a boutique consulting firm with former Sen. John Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz. According to The New Yorker, Biden was born in Wilmington, Delaware, and went to Archmere Academy, a Catholic high school attended by both his father and his older brother, Beau.

    Two polls from Rasmussen are all good news for President Trump, who is surging, both in his overall job approval numbers and against Joe Biden. The president currently holds a 52 percent job approval rating, compared to 48 percent who disapprove. This is Trump’s first lift above 50 in this poll since late last month, since his first debate with Biden and trip to Walter Reed Hospital with the coronavirus. At this same time in the first term of his failed presidency, Barry Obama sat at 50 percent in this same poll. Obama was reelected, and right now, Trump is polling two points higher. In a head-to-head matchup with Biden, Rasmussen’s weekly poll shows Trump surging. Biden is still up 49 to 46 percent, but at this same time last week, Biden was up a whopping 12 points. The week before that, he was up eight points. Rasmussen also points...
    Donald Trump and Joe Biden met face-to-face at a distance Thursday in their final match-up in an already angry contest that the president has threatened to blow up even further by launching a series of attacks on the former vice president's son. It is the final debate of the election – the previous one got scratched after Trump refused to take part in a 'virtual' format after getting the coronavirus – and represents an opportunity with dwindling time for the president to try to reset the race. Trump hoped he could throw his rival off balance and demonstrate that his mind is 'shot' by repeatedly attacking and interrupting him during the first debate in Cleveland. But Biden ended up getting a slight bump in national polls taken afterward. Now, the president has telegraphed he will accuse his rival of 'corruption' just like he has at his campaign rallies leading up...

In 2016, the man known as one of the Democratic Party’s strongest orators delivered Hillary Clinton’s closing argument in the same place — at a rally for thousands the night before Election Day on Independence Mall.

    Michael Steele, who became the first Black chairman of the Republican National Committee a decade ago, has endorsed Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race. “I am an American, a conservative and a Republican, in that order,” Steele wrote in an NBC News op-ed published early Tuesday. “And I am voting for Joe Biden on Nov. 3.” While he praised the values of former President Ronald Reagan and Republican principles like “individual initiative and free enterprise” as “the most effective means of empowering people to achieve the American Dream,” he said that President Trump failed to meet those standards. "The Republican Party, like our nation, has an animating purpose -- promoting freedom," he wrote, invoking former Abraham Lincoln's 1860 abolitionist speech before the Cooper Union. FORMER RNC CHAIRMAN ENDORSES JOE BIDEN FOR PRESIDENT “America has watched as the Republican Party stopped pursuing its animating...
    Former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele announced on Tuesday that he is voting for Democrat Joe Biden, claiming that President Donald Trump foments division, buddies up with dictators, and failed as a businessman. In an op-ed published on NBC News, Steele, who served as his party’s top official between January 2009 and January 2011, opened by noting that he is an “American, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.” He went on to write of growing up in the Black community, which almost universally supports Democrats, even though he himself saw more value in the platform of the Republicans. “I recognized that the values articulated by President Ronald Reagan echoed those of my mother — a sharecropper’s daughter who worked in a laundry,” he wrote. He then went on to lay out some key points in his life and career of advocating for conservative principles, including his time...
    President Donald Trump and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden are statistically tied in Florida, a University of North Florida poll found. According to the survey, 48 percent of Florida voters back the former vice president, while 47 percent support Trump. Biden’s one percent lead is within the survey’s +/- 3.3 percent margin of error, pointing to a virtual tie. University of North Florida’s Public Opinion Research Lab (PORL) conducted the survey last week, October 12-16, among 863 likely voters. The results represent a significant swing in Trump’s direction over the past few weeks. A UNF poll conducted two days after the first presidential debate showed Biden leading Trump by six percentage points — 51 percent to the president’s 45 percent. Dr. Michael Binder, PORL faculty director and associate professor of political science, said the results indicate that November 3 “might be a long night.” “While some polls have shown Biden with a...
    Former President Barack Obama will make his 2020 campaign trail debut on Wednesday when he headlines a drive-in rally for Joe Biden in the must-win state of Pennsylvania. Obama will travel to Philadelphia to campaign on behalf of the Democratic nominee and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris and encourage Pennsylvanians to vote early, the Biden campaign said. The Democratic stalwart pulled a vanishing act during the competitive and crowded primary process but finally threw his weight behind his loyal veep in April once he was clearly the party’s nominee. Obama and former first lady have headlined a number of virtual rallies for Joe Biden, hauling in enormous sums, including an enormous $11 million fundraiser in June, but Thursday’s drive-in rally will be the former commander-in-chief’s first in-person campaign stop. The two-term Democratic president was reportedly skeptical of Biden’s White House bid and failed to come to Biden’s aid even as...

    By Chris Willman | Variety The Beastie Boys had never before licensed any of their songs for an advertisement, but that commercial blackout came to an end during Sunday’s Steelers/Browns game, when the sounds of “Sabotage” accompanied a spot for the Joe Biden presidential campaign. It wasn’t just any campaign spot, but one that focuses on how the COVID-19 shutdowns have decimated the live music industry. The ad focuses on a club in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Blind Pig, that remains shuttered this year after a 50-year run as a pillar of the community, which the owner blames on what he considers Donald Trump‘s shortsighted response to the coronavirus crisis. A Biden campaign spokesperson said the Beastie Boys, who had “never licensed music for an ad until now,” agreed to the use of “Sabotage” in the spot “because of the importance of the election. “Everywhere I go, people have...
    Madison Summers October 19, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump may not interrupt Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as much during the upcoming presidential debate as much as the president did during their first debate. Fox News’ Chris Wallace noted during Sunday’s interview on Fox News with Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller that Chris Christie — one of the president’s debate advisers — previously said Trump came in “too hot” to the debate. Trump and Biden repeatedly clashed during the first presidential debate, which has lead to speculation on how the next and last debate scheduled for Thursday will go. As Wallace noted that Trump interrupted Biden roughly 145 times in the 90 minutes of the debate, the Fox News anchor asked, “Does he plan to be as disruptive in the debate this week as he was then… will we see more of the same or is he...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden did not seem to appreciate being asked about the recent allegations regarding his son Hunter's work overseas and if his vice presidency played a role in it. A CBS News reporter asked the former vice president for a response to the New York Post's piecemeal stories about Hunter Biden's business dealings on Friday night, to which Joe Biden answered, “I know you’d ask it. I have no response. It’s another smear campaign.” The former vice president then took a shot at the reporter, adding, “Right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.” I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story about your son, sir?He called it a “smear campaign” and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Former President Barack Obama is hitting the campaign trail for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his first stop will be in Philadelphia next Wednesday.

Pennsylvania is an important battleground state for Biden and President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. According to the CBS News Battleground Tracker, Biden holds a six-point lead over Trump — 52% to 46%. Trump narrowly won Pennsylvania and it’s 20 electoral votes in 2016.

Election officials in Philadelphia, home to one-fifth of the state’s Democratic voters, have been sued by Trump’s campaign,...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on ABC on Thursday night for a rambling town hall, in lieu of a debate, opposite a town hall for President Donald Trump on NBC at the same time. Aside from many factually-challenged statements, Biden said a number of truly outlandish things. 8-year-olds should be allowed to decide they are transgender. Biden: “The idea that an 8-year-old child, a 10-year-old child, decides, you know, I want to be transgender, that’s what I think I’d like to be, it’d make my life a lot easier — there should be zero discrimination.” (What happens when the 8-year-olds hit puberty?) Police should shoot criminals in the leg. Biden: “You can ban choke holds, but beyond that, you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. De-escalate. So instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.” (Are...
    Critics piled on the NBC News town hall for what appeared to be a "debate" between President Trump and moderator Savannah Guthrie while the ABC News town hall lobbed "softballs" to Joe Biden.  Viewers who tuned into the Peacock Network expected to hear questions from voters, but similarly to the NBC town hall with Biden, questions for nearly the first 20 minutes of the program came from the moderator.  Guthrie spent much of that time grilling Trump on masks and white supremacy.  That didn't sit well with many.  "How long will NBC go before giving an actual voter the chance to ask a question?" pollster Frank Luntz asked, who later called the "town hall" descriptor of the program "false advertising."

    Facebook has sparked fury by limiting the spread of the New York Post story which claims Joe Biden met with a Ukrainian businessman while he was Vice President, saying it needs to be fact-checked first by its chosen third party before they will allow people to share it more online.  The announcement came on Wednesday without any explanation from the social media giant and before Biden had even denied it.  It thrusts into the spotlight again the exorbitant power Facebook has not only over the circulation of news but also over politics and the spread of information, and comes at a particularly tense moment given the Presidential election is in just three weeks.   It also raises the question of who Facebook's fact-checkers are and what qualifies them to arbitrate the truth.   Andy Stone, who is a policy communications director at Facebook announced the decision on Twitter.

    President Trump on Monday evening appeared at his first campaign rally outside the White House since he tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month. Trump tossed MAGA facemasks to the crowd of thousands, who chanted praise for the president, soon before he took the podium. He then spoke about his bout with COVID-19, promising to distribute his treatment to hospitals across the country. “We’re going to take whatever the hell they gave me and distribute it around to hospitals, everyone is going to have the same damn thing,” he said. Trump then sounded off on a range of issues, repeatedly blasting Joe Biden and the Democratic Party, who he said would turn America into a communist state. “If he wins the radical left will be running the country. They’re addicted to power,” he said of Biden. “They want to punish the middle class. They will replace the American...
    President Trump on Monday evening will host his first campaign rally outside the White House since he tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month. The 7 p.m. rally, at an airport hangar in Sanford, Florida, comes on the same day that his Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, began Senate confirmation hearings. Trump criticized the senators throughout the day on Twitter, and later turned to his competitor Joe Biden, blasting him for apparently not being able to draw crowds at his campaign events and for other gaffes. “Almost nobody showed up to the Sleepy Joe Biden “Rally” in Ohio. The reporting and polls are a Media Con Job – Fake News. We have far more support and enthusiasm than even in 2016. November 3rd. will be a great day for America!!!” he wrote in one tweet. “Sleepy Joe Biden had a particularly bad day today. He couldn’t remember the...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Joe Biden is set to make his first general election campaign visit Monday to Ohio, signaling the former vice president’s hopes of winning the state Democrats lost by a significant margin in the 2016 election. The Biden campaign said the former vice president plans an afternoon campaign speech in Toledo, then will head to Cincinnati for a voter mobilization event. Vice President Mike Pence also plans a “Make America Great Again” campaign stop in Columbus on Monday, as he filled in for Trump, who has been sidelined from the campaign trail recently after he was diagnosed with COVID-19. Biden extended his Ohio advertising presence in Ohio last week, adding money notably to radio in rural western counties and in the state’s eastern and southeastern Appalachian counties, where Trump won big four years ago. The president won the state over Democrat Hillary Clinton by 8 percentage points...
    Boris Johnson's team have started wooing Democrat US presidential challenger Joe Biden after reportedly giving up on Donald Trump's chances of being re-elected. Downing Street are said to have turned their sights to the 77-year-old amid signs that he is developing a commanding lead over Mr Trump in the polls. With just 22 days to go there are fears for the future progress of talks over a US-UK trade deal that have been carried out by International Trade Secretary Liz Truss. Mr Biden has previously warned that Mr Johnson's attempts to undo part of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement relating to Northern Ireland could see the UK shelve the talks if he is in charge. Mr Trump has returned to the White House after being briefly hospitalised with Covid-19. Last night he took off his mask and told a crowd of hundreds of fans outside the White House 'I'm feeling great' and the...
    (CNN)The polls look awful for President Donald Trump. He's down by about 10 points nationally and in almost all of the swing states to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Trump's first debate performance was widely panned, and he needs a lot to go right the rest of the way. Chances are Trump will lose and could lose by a wide margin.Yet, with more than three weeks to go until Election Day, it's important to note that Trump still has a non-trivial chance of winning.I've written about this many times.

    Taylor Swift announced Wednesday that she will be voting for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and running mate Senator Kamala Harris in the 2020 election — her first-ever public presidential endorsement. The superstar broke the news on social media hours before the first and only vice presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Harris. Swift shared an image of herself holding cookies with "Biden Harris 2020" written on them, as well as her cover for V Magazine's "The Thought Leaders issue," in which she spoke about the endorsement in an interview. The cover shows Swift with the word "Vote" superimposed over her face. "I spoke to @vmagazine about why I'll be voting for Joe Biden for president," she wrote on social media.

    The coronavirus pandemic has brought out the "worst" in Joe Biden and the Democratic Party, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told "Bill Hemmer Reports" on Wednesday. McDaniel, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, made the comment after learning of Sen. Kamala Harris' plans to fiercely attack Vice President Mike Pence's handling of the novel virus during Wednesday's debate. "I think It's despicable for Democrats to continually try and use the pandemic for political gain and not work with this president in a time of crisis, which usually brings out the best of our country," McDaniel said, "and it's bringing out the worst in people like Joe Biden who are more insistent on finger-pointing than problem-solving." The RNC chairwoman defended the administration's "remarkable" response, contrasting their efforts with Joe Biden's continuous "finger-pointing." RONNA MCDANIEL TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 "Mike Pence can say, 'We shut down the border, we recognized the threat it was, while Joe Biden was saying, 'Let's leave America open,' while Joe Biden put no plan forward except finger-pointing," McDaniel said. "The...
    It’s become common to see news articles insisting that Donald Trump is getting “the best care in the world,” or as Dr. Sean Conley said during the first press event at Walter Reed Medical Center, “beyond state of the art care.” That Trump might be getting treatments unavailable to most people may be frustrating, but it also seems … obvious. After all, the whole reason that wealthy people constantly insist that America has the “best healthcare system in the world” is that America has a healthcare system that gives the wealthy what they want. The New York Times has estimated that the treatment Trump has received so far would cost the average American over $100,000, and much of it is simply unavailable to them. But that doesn’t mean that wealthy and famous people get the best health care. It means they get what they want in health care, even if what they want is entirely not what...
    Madison Summers October 7, 2020 0 Comments Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is declaring that if President Donald Trump is still infected with COVID-19 by the next presidential debate scheduled for Oct. 15 then the two should not face off. After noting he tested negative again on Tuesday, Biden told reporters on Tuesday night, “I don’t know exactly what the rules are going to be, and I’m not sure that what President Trump is all about now, I don’t know what his status is. I’m looking forward to being able to debate him, but I just hope all the protocols are followed, what’s necessary at the time.” “Do you feel safe in the same room as someone who still may have COVID?” Biden was asked by a reporter. Biden responded, “Well, I think if he still has COVID, we shouldn’t have a debate.” “By the way, I think...
    Two polls released Tuesday show Donald Trump trailing his Democratic rival Joe Biden both nationally and in six must-win battleground states as the president returned to the White House from Walter Reed Medical Center Monday night. Among likely voters, 57 per cent said they back Biden, according to a CNN poll taken October 1-4 – and in that time span the president tested positive for coronavirus and was transferred to the hospital for treatment. The poll showed 41 per cent of likely voters plan to cast their ballot for Trump, creating a margin of 16 per cent between the two candidates just four weeks, or 28 days, before Election Day. While Biden holds a national lead, the race for the White House will ultimately come down to a handful of swing states. A separate poll from CNBC/Change research taken Friday through Sunday reveals Biden's stable hold in six battleground swing...

    VIDEO1:2401:24Former vice president Joe Biden: Wearing masks are a patriotic dutyElections Joe Biden said on Monday that President Donald Trump bears responsibility for becoming infected with Covid-19 as a result of his frequent refusal to wear a mask while around others. "Look, anybody who contracts the virus by essentially saying, 'masks don't matter; social distancing doesn't matter' — I think is responsible for what happens to them," Biden said during a NBC News town hall hosted by Lester Holt in Miami. The town hall took place in front of a socially distanced audience. Biden said that if those in attendance took off their masks and crowded around, they too would bear responsibility for what happened.

    While boarding his flight to Florida Monday,  Joe Biden held a quick press gaggle with assembled members of the media.  When asked if he still planned to participate in future debates now that President Donald Trump has been hospitalized with the coronavirus, the former Vice President left it to his medical experts. “If the doctors — listen to the science. If the scientists say that it’s safe and the distance are safe, then that’s fine,” a masked Biden said. “I’ll do whatever the experts say is appropriate to do,” adding that he is looking forward to the town hall-style debate, scheduled for Oct. 15. “I’m not an expert on that but I think we should be very cautious as I’ve thought all along, and I’m going to continue listening to the scientists,” he said. “But I’m looking forward to have an opportunity to do a town hall meeting if...
    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has opened up a 14-point lead over President Donald Trump nationally in a poll conducted after last Tuesday night’s debate, NBC News reported. The poll was taken before the president’s COVID-19 diagnosis and does not reflect any changes in voter behavior since that news. The NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll has the former vice president leading his adversary 53 percent to 39 percent among registered voters. The survey was conducted in the two days following Tuesday’s debate, during which the two men sometimes talked over each other and during which moderator Chris Wallace struggled to maintain order. By comparison, in the most recent poll conducted by the same agency prior to the debate, Biden led Trump by eight points. His previous highest lead was 11 points. On the topic of the debate, poll respondents believed, by a nearly two-to-one margin, that Biden was the winner...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden told a local news anchor that he hopes President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 infection is a “wake up call” that will enlighten people who previously thought that going maskless made them “somehow free, or whatever.” The Democratic presidential nominee gave several local interviews in Michigan Friday, including to Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ’s 7 Action News. Asked for a reaction to Trump’s diagnosis, and how it might affect behavior, Biden’s first priority was to wish the first couple well. ” Well first of all, our prayers are with the president and the first lady that they recover fully, number one,” Biden said. “Number two, I think that, I hope it changes the perception among many people who thought that not wearing a mask made them somehow, I don’t know, free or whatever,” he continued.  “It’s not about wearing the mask to protect yourself, it’s wearing the...
    Former President Barack Obama cast his political and personal differences with President Trump aside to wish him a speedy recovery after he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19. Obama opened up his joint fundraiser for 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with Biden's running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, by sending his well-wishes on behalf of himself and wife, former first lady Michelle Obama. "Although we're in the midst of a big political fight, and we take that very seriously, we also want to extend our best wishes to the president of the United States," he told grassroots donors Friday. Obama added that he hoped the current first couple, like others dealing with the coronavirus, had access to the healthcare they needed. "We're all Americans, and we're all human beings, and we want to make sure that everybody is healthy," he said. Obama's sentiments were echoed by...
    Democratic nominee Joe Biden said in Michigan Friday that he was praying for President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump as he encouraged Americans to wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.    'Jill and I pray that they will make a quick and full recovery,' Biden said. 'This is not a matter of politics. It is a bracing reminder for all of us that we must take this virus seriously. It is not going away.'  After Biden and his wife Jill tested negative for the coronavirus Friday morning, the former vice president took off to the key swing state of Michigan to give a speech, where he kept a mask on the whole time.    Democratic nominee Joe Biden told a Michigan crowd Friday that he's praying for President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump, while reminding Americans to please wear masks to curb the spread of...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden made his first public appearance since news broke that President Donald Trump and the First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for Covid-19 early Friday morning. During a muted campaign appearance in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Democratic nominee for president opened by sending prayers “for the health on the safety of the first lady and president of the United States after they tested positive for Covid-19.” “My wife Jill and I pray that they will make you full and quick recovery,” he continued. “This is not a matter of politics.” Cable news punditry has been rife with analysis, criticism, and second-guessing of how the White House and President Trump have handled the coronavirus pandemic, in particular, the seeming undermining of public health experts who have encouraged American citizens to wear masks. Trump rarely wears a mask publicly and has often mocked Biden for wearing...

    Live from New York, it’s the Jim and Maya show. The official “Saturday Night Live” Twitter account shared a sneak peek of Jim Carrey as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and Maya Rudolph as running mate Kamala Harris ahead of Saturday’s premiere. The short teaser video gives a behind-the-scenes look at the makeup and wardrobe needed for 58-year-old Carrey to transform into Biden, 77. In September, the live sketch show announced the “Ace Ventura” star would be taking on the role, which was partly his own suggestion. “There was some interest on his part,” Lorne Michaels, who helms “SNL,” told Vulture. “And then we responded, obviously, positively. But it came down to discussions about what the take was. He and Colin Jost had a bunch of talks. He and I as well. He will give the part energy and strength . . . Hopefully it’s funny.” Jim Carrey and Maya Rudolph transform...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday called on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to drop out of future debates against President Trump. “I think one and done,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in an interview with Bloomberg TV. The first debate on Tuesday night in Cleveland “was a sad occasion for our country, it broke my heart,” Pelosi said. “I myself did not think that Biden should dignify a debate” with Trump, she said. Biden spokesmen did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post. Biden resisted an earlier push by Pelosi to not debate Trump at all, and after the acrimonious first forum his staff said Biden would still debate Trump on Oct. 15 in Miami and Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tenn. Trump jeered Biden during a Wednesday night rally in Duluth, Minnesota, as he claimed he trounced Biden in Cleveland. “Joe Biden is too weak to...

    Michael Keaton suggested that Democratic nominee Joe Biden should not participate in any more presidential debates after he “won” the first one on Tuesday against President Trump. The actor spoke out about the first presidential debate of 2020, which many derided as being chaotic and lacking substance due to a lot of crosstalk and interruptions from the incumbent candidate. The “Trial of the Chicago 7” actor joined the myriad of celebrities who publicly commented on the debate by lending some advice to Biden and chastising Trump’s political acumen in a series of tweets. “No more ‘debates’. Joe, leave him hanging. You won. Walk away. That was NOT a debate,” he said Wednesday. From there, he issued a tweet warning his followers that Trump will try to claim victory on Election Day in an effort to discredit the many mail-in ballots that are expected to pour in for counting after the actual election due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Michelle Obama feels your debate pain. The former first lady said she sympathizes with voters who may have been “turned off” by the chaotic first presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden — but she is urging Americans to “turn those feelings into action.” “It’s the only way we can get out of this chaos and restore some stability to this country. You can start by reaching out to everyone you know. Make sure they’re registered. Make sure they know how and when they’re going to vote,” Obama told her 17 million followers on Twitter and 42 million followers on Instagram. The debate in Cleveland on Tuesday has been referred to as a “dumpster fire” and a “s—storm” after the two candidates talked over each other in a maddening cacophony as Fox News host Chris Wallace struggled to maintain control. The presidential debate commission is now even...

That’s what he wants. So turn those feelings into action — turn them into votes for my friend, [Joe Biden].” “It’s the only way we can get out of this chaos and restore some stability to this country.” Obama encouraged the American people to reach out “to everyone you know” and “make sure they’re registered,” know how to vote...

    President Trump on Wednesday told a large campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota, that he defeated Joe Biden during the first presidential debate. “Joe Biden is too weak to lead this country. You know Biden lost badly when his supporters are saying he should cancel the rest of the debates,” Trump said about Tuesday night’s battle. The acrimonious debate in Cleveland was ridden with insults and interruptions and Trump told the crowd moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News was overly deferential to Biden. “I was debating two people last night,” Trump said at the rally, again knocking Wallace, who largely failed to control bitter exchanges between Trump and the Democratic candidate. But Trump boasted of the debate’s 73 million TV viewers and ran through what he said were poor moments for Biden. “Liberal media is upset that I took the fight to Biden and exposed his very dangerous agenda,” Trump...
    President Trump was the "dominant force" in Tuesday night's presidential debate against Democratic nominee Joe Biden Trump 2020 Campaign Senior Adviser Jason Miller told “Special Report" Wednesday. “This was the first time in the modern presidential era where the incumbent president won the first debate," Miller told host Bret Baier. "And that's what President Trump did last night. When you talk about the two most important issues in front of folks, and that's ... COVID recovery and economic recovery, President Trump is the only candidate to actually score any points on those issues.” The president has been heavily criticized for repeatedly interrupting Biden, with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie telling ABC News Tuesday night that Trump was “too hot.” "I couldn't disagree more," Miller said in response to Christie's criticism. "I think President Trump, again, was the dominant force last night. I thought he came out and laid out a clear vision of where he wants to go....

In a statement, the commission said it wants to have a more orderly discussion on the issues. Minutes into the first debate, the interruptions and insults flew between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. At one point while the President spoke over Biden, the former Vice President told him, “Will you shut up, man?” During another point in the debate, the President told Mr. Biden, “Don’t ever use that word with me, there’s nothing smart about you Joe.” The former Vice President called the President a “clown” and said he was the worst President. President Trump told Biden he accomplished more in 47 months than the former Vice President accomplished in his 47 years in politics. In this photo illustration the US President Donald...

    It was Joe Biden and Chris Wallace who set the tone for the first presidential debate – who deliberately rode the debate off the rails – because it was Joe Biden and Chris Wallace who interrupted Trump a handful of times before the president decided, If that’s how you want to play the game, let’s play the game. You can watch the full debate below, and what you will see is a civil debate until Joe Biden and Chris Wallace decided it was okay to start  interrupting the president. Watch for yourself.

    By Peter Henderson | Reuters SAN FRANCISCO – Facebook said on Wednesday that it was immediately banning U.S. Facebook and Instagram ads that call voting fraud widespread, or election results invalid, or impugn any one method of voting. The company announced the new rules in a blog post, adding to earlier restrictions on premature claims of election victory. The move comes a day after President Donald Trump used the first televised debate with Democratic challenger Joe Biden to amplify his baseless claims that the election will be “rigged.” Related Articles Trump pushes Supreme Court into the election ring Biden, Trump return to campaign trail after first debate Teachers on Trump: In high school debate, you’d be ‘kicked out if you behaved that way’ World reacts to debate: ‘Spiteful, chaotic, abusive’ A Joe Biden presidency could boost Tesla and the auto industry...
    Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday with his reaction to the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden last night. Glenn brought up an exchange when moderator Chris Wallace asked President Trump to condemn "white supremacists and right-wing militia" — despite the fact he has already done so repeatedly and just last week even vowed to designate the Ku Klux Klan as a terrorist organization. By contrast, Wallace did not ask Biden to condemn Antifa, which the former vice president actually defended by calling "an idea, not an organization." "This is the double standard that we go against," Trump Jr. said. "So, Donald Trump can literally call the KKK a terrorist organization. Donald Trump can actually do things to help the African American community, like prison reform [and] opportunity zones. Joe Biden gets to talk...
    Constant interruptions during a debate does not serve democracy well, former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said Wednesday in response to the first debate between President Trump and Democrat Joe Biden. “I thought it was a mess," Fleischer told “Outnumbered Overtime". "I just don't think democracy is well-served when you have two candidates basically doing nothing but interrupt each other. The way debates actually work -- so viewers get something out of it -- is you hear a difference, you hear a clash, you hear one person speak with ideas, another person speak with ideas, and a bit of a rebuttal, occasional interrupting. “But when the whole thing is marked by interrupting, it is not good for the audience at home, you really don’t benefit from it,” Fleischer added. Biden attacked Trump as a “national embarrassment” in Cleveland Wednesday when asked how he would respond to voters who may have been turned off by...
