Tweets from Trump
President Trump has been verbally attacking Biden about different policy issues and his strength to carry out his Campaign.
“Sleepy Joe Biden just closed down his campaign for the day (Again). Wants to rest! He is a very LOW ENERGY INDIVIDUAL, and our Country cannot make it in these exciting, but complex and competitive times, with a Low Energy President” Trump wrote in a Tweet
Another Tweet from President Trump suggest Democrat Nominee Biden has not been nice to the Hispanics during his long Years in Politics.
“Sleepy Joe Biden has spent 47 years in politics being terrible to Hispanics. Now he is relying on Castro lover Bernie Sanders to help him out. That won’t work! Remember, Miami Cubans gave me the highly honored Bay of Pigs Award for all I have done for our great Cuban Population!”
“We are advertising all over the place, but as much as we do, the Fake News likes to say we aren’t. Just being smart. We have much more money than we had at same time in 2016. Also spending on other, and different, elements of the campaign. Starting to get great poll numbers!” President Trump in another Tweet
“Democrats are “heartless”. They don’t want to give STIMULUS PAYMENTS to people who desperately need the money, and whose fault it was NOT that the plague came in from China. Go for the much higher numbers, Republicans, it all comes back to the USA anyway (one way or another!)” He wrote.
Tweets from Democrat’s Biden
For Biden, he has been keyed on different Policy issues, inclusive of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or the Obamacare, that seeks to provide Health care Insurance for more People with lower income, below the Federal Poverty Line Of 100% to 400%. He is accusing President Trump Of use the Supreme Court to eliminate said ACT.
“Obamacare was—and is—a big deal. As president, I’ll protect and build on it, lower health care costs, and give Americans the opportunity to choose a new public option.”
“We’re going to make sure everyone has access to the affordable health care they need.
In the middle of a global pandemic, President Trump is trying to get the U.S. Supreme Court to eliminate Obamacare and rip health care protections away from 100 million Americans with pre-existing conditions.” Biden Tweets
Obamacare was—and is—a big deal. As president, I’ll protect and build on it, lower health care costs, and give Americans the opportunity to choose a new public option.” Another Tweet from Biden
Biden “We’re going to make sure everyone has access to the affordable health care they need.”
In another Campaign tweet, Biden is point fingers at the incumbent for doing nothing in the midst of a Global Climate Emergency.
“We are in the middle of a climate emergency — and every day that Donald Trump remains in the White House further threatens the future of our planet.
We have to vote him out.” Biden tweeted
In one of the Zoom Briefings organized by the Foreign Press Center (FPC), a Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Political Science, Dr. Jeffery M. StoneCash have told Journalists that President Trump is being tough on China in hopes it will help his re-election.
“Right now, Trump is posturing as being tough on China in hopes it will help his reelection chances and he can escape blame for the spread of Covid. Biden does not want to look weak. But ultimately a lot of this is election posturing. Things may change a lot in January,” Dr. StoneCash
“I don’t think foreign policy is going to matter much in this election. Trump is trying to blame China for many things, but it is not going to play a major role. “He added
Despite maintaining some of his Party Principles, Dr. StoneCash believes Trump has alienated some Republicans and has focused on Tribal Politics.
“Trump has changed the party somewhat, but he has also stuck to some party principles: tax cuts for business and the affluent, fewer regulations, catering to conservative Christians. But he also focused on tribal politics: we are good, the other side is evil. He wants to energize his base. In so doing he has alienated many Republicans and they have lost supporters. I don’t think they can continue on this path without shrinking,” Dr. StoneCash
The early or Mail in Voting has already begun with some Americans intending to to avoid exposure to the Coronavirus Pandemic and others avoiding long cue or to provide room for others who would prefer going to the poll on November 3rd to Vote.
A cross section of Americans who have participated in the early Voting spoke with Journalists from the FPC, many of those who did, have said they voted for Biden for different reasons.

“I think it’s important to get early voted. I’m working from Home, here in Arlington, we got different chides. I’m not concern about the Mail in Voting, though the President has criticized it. I have voted because I’m tired about the lies, Corruption and no one is doing anything about it”
“I voted for Biden/Harris Ticket. I want to see some changes in the Immigration process. The current Administration is wary and is not handling the Immigration process the way it supposed to be Handled. This Election will bring change”
“I think with the current administration; the Country is falling apart and I don’t aligned with the current values that are being put up. Put up a system that has believes compared to my own”
However, the Popular vote plays a minor role in American Election as the Electoral College, constituting 538 Individuals will have to decide who becomes the next president of the United States, by a Candidate obtaining 270 Votes Of said number.
