President Donald Trump voted early Saturday in his home state of Florida for presidency, while his Democrat rival Joe Biden visited the “wavering” state of Pennsylvania on Saturday.
Trump, who moved from New York to Florida last year, voted in West Palm Beach Saturday morning after spending the night at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
“It was a very safe vote. I can tell you that it is much safer than sending your newsletter by mail. Everything was perfect, very strict, according to the rules … They [сотрудники избирательной комиссии] did a wonderful job here, great people. I am honored to vote [здесь]”, – said the president, speaking with journalists after the vote.
The president then reached out to supporters at rallies in Lamberton, North Carolina, Circleville, Ohio, and Waukesh, Wisconsin.
Meanwhile, former Vice President Biden hosted events in Bucks County, a Philadelphia suburb that Hillary Clinton won by a narrow margin in 2016, as well as neighboring Lucerne County. Former President Barack Obama won twice in Lucerne, but in 2016 local voters overwhelmingly supported Trump.
Biden’s headquarters is also trying to win the sympathy of voters in one of the key states for the elections in Florida – Barack Obama will hold a rally in North Miami in support of Joe Biden, his former vice president.
Although less than two weeks are left before the presidential election, more than 52 million people have already voted early in the United States. About 100 million more are expected to vote before the winner is officially announced.
