Biden and Trump both visited Tampa. They may as well have been in different worlds.

President Donald Trump probably has to win Florida if he wants to be president for another four years. But while campaigning in Tampa on the same day his Democratic challenger was also visiting the region, the president continued to operate in his own version of reality.

There, his perceived grievances against the media, Democrats, presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter are key elements of his final address to voters as Trump attempts to secure another term in the White House, where he continued to lie and to say “if we have (a vaccine) or not, it is round the corner”, about the pandemic.

He continued to downplay the severity of COVID-19 while speaking in a state that was hit hard by the pandemic this summer and 16,648 Florida residents have died, according to state coronavirus data, as a host of unmasked faces could be seen behind him, clapping him on.

“If you approach, wear a mask, always controversial, it’s not controversial to me, you approach, you wear a mask, social distancing, social distancing,” Trump told a crowd of people following not that advice. “You know the bottom line though, you’re going to get better. You will be better. If I can get better, anyone can get better. And I improved quickly. “

With Biden and Trump appearing in Tampa on Thursday days before the polls close, a close race between the two is clear. The latest NBC News / Marist poll places the former vice president four percentage points ahead of Trump among likely voters. And a Monmouth poll released Thursday found Biden edging Trump by six points in a high turnout situation and leading by four points in the low turnout results.

In dueling speeches, Trump criticized Biden for having an agenda that would “devastate the Hispanic American community,” in another act of exaggeration without any evidence after previously calling Biden “the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics “.

And in his own remarks, Biden later that night at the Florida State Fairgrounds, where Biden took the stage with a mask he removed before starting to speak, the country’s death toll and the number of people lost in Florida were mentioned by the former. vice president from the start.

Trump has “given up,” Biden said, as he attacked the president’s handling of the pandemic. The president has “given up the white flag, abandoned our families and surrendered to this virus,” Biden said.
