In the final hours of the campaign, Donald Trump and his rival Joe Biden offered starkly different visions of America.
On Monday, Biden campaigned in Pennsylvania and Ohio, while Trump toured the voting battlegrounds of Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.
Trump delivered his final remarks at midnight in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he made his last appearance before the election in 2016. His speech touched on familiar themes, warning that Biden would ban fracking, lock down the economy and move American jobs abroad.
The president assured supporters that “we’re doing well all over” and predicted a “red wave”.
“We’re going to win the state of Michigan so easily,” he said. “We want to do it just like last time, but let’s give me a little bit more margin.”
Biden, meanwhile, delivered his last address to supporters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a state analysts believe could be key to the outcome of the election.
Framing the vote as a “battle for the soul of America”, the former vice-president argued that he will heal the country and do what Trump has failed to do, control the US coronavirus pandemic.
“We’re done with the chaos, we’re done with the tweets, the anger, the hate, the failure, the irresponsibility,” said Biden, branding Trump a divisive and dangerous president.
Now, it is up to voters to decide.
