Donald Trump is in currently in Nevada, his Democratic opponent Joe Biden in North Carolina:
Donald Trump is running a frantic campaign with several trips a day. The Republican president is scheduled to attend a fundraiser in California on Sunday before an afternoon meeting in Carson City, the capital of Nevada, where he is five points ahead of the former vice president.
After a Saturday with no official event,JoeBiden travels to Durham, North Carolina, where he is expected to call on his supporters to use advance voting, before attending a meeting with African-American religious representatives.

A veteran of politics
JoeBiden leads by nine percentage points in the national average of polls. But above all, with a narrower margin, in key states that can switch from one party to another at every election.
Just Like 2016, Twitter has again become a battleground.
With both candidates scheduled to meet Thursday in Nashville for the final presidential debate, Trump camp has stepped up its attacks on Biden in recent days.
“Joe Joe Biden is a corrupt politician, and everyone knows that,” the billionaire said on Sunday on Twitter.
In a Saturday meeting in Michigan, another crucial state for the election, he called Joe Biden a “Criminal” who posed “a risk to national security”
He also attacked the state’s Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, who imposed severe restrictions on the coronavirus pandemic, as the crowd chanted,“Put her in jail”
Ms. Whitmer, a staunch opponent of the president, was targeted by a far-right group that planned to kidnap her and try her for “treason” The individuals were arrested last week before they were able to complete their task.
“It’s incredibly disturbing” that the president “inspires, encourages and incites this kind of domestic terrorism,” Gretchen Whitmer said Sunday on NBC.
“People are frustrated with this governor and it has nothing to do with this attempted attack against her,” Laura Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, said on CNN, assuring that he was doing “absolutely nothing. to get people to threaten “Mrs. Whitmer, but that he” was having fun.
“The president needs to realize that the words of a president of the United States have weight,” House Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on ABC.
“Injecting intimidation tactics into our political dialogue, especially about a female governor and her family, is so irresponsible,” she said
The former vice president on Sunday denounced the White House’s much-criticized handling of the pandemic, as the United States has more than 8 million positive cases and nearly 220,000 deaths.
“Rather than take responsibility and be a leader, President Trump continues to downplay COVID-19,” Biden said in a statement. “Donald Trump has not taken the necessary precautions to protect himself and others. Can we trust him to protect Nevada families? He added.
The US president, who has always been reluctant to wear a mask, had been hospitalized three nights after contracting the virus in early October. He has since resumed his campaign at the race pace, asserting himself immune.
On Sunday, he defended his widespread testing program. “The more you test, the more positive cases you detect. Very simple! he said on Twitter
