Trump Says Battleground Polls ‘finally forced’ Biden ‘out of his basement’
With less than 60 days until the November election, President Donald Trump and former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden are taking to battleground states in an effort to sway key voters. Biden, who has been holding his campaign events virtually for months amid the COVID-19 pandemic, is finally on the campaign trail to visit those states.
Trump and Vice President Mike Pence visited Pennsylvania last week and Trump is set to return this week. Trump will also make campaign stops in Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, and Nevada this week, per Newsmax’s Logan Ratick.
Biden also visited Pennsylvania last week and is set to visit Arizona, Michigan, and Minnesota this week, according to reports.
On Tuesday, President Trump wrote on Twitter that “Biden is finally being forced out of his basement. Now you’ll be able to see what is going on ‘up there.’ He may do some ‘limited’ campaigning. Basement Biden is no longer playing well in the Polls!”
Earlier, he tweeted, “If Biden’s Polling wasn’t going down, and fast, he wouldn’t be going to Pittsburgh.”
Pennsylvania holds the second-highest number of electoral votes and President Trump won the state in the 2016 election. Last week’s polls showed Trump holding a lead over Biden in the Keystone State. Biden holds a small lead in many polls after his weekend visit.
