US President Donald Trump has voted in his adopted home of Florida before hitting the campaign trail for rallies in three swing states, joining the millions of Americans who have cast early ballots at a record-setting pace ahead of the November 3 election. It marked the first time an incumbent president votes, in-person, in the state.

More than 50 million people have already voted in the election either by mail or in person, according to the U.S. Elections Project, a turnout-tracking database run by University of Florida political scientist Michael McDonald.

The rush to vote early is being seen as a sign of the intense interest in the contest between Mr Trump and Mr Biden, as well as concerns about avoiding crowded polling places due to the coronavirus, which has killed more than 224,000 Americans.

Meanwhile, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told a drive-in rally outside Philadelphia that he didn't like "all this distance" but said it was necessary amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The United States set a single-day record of more than 84,000 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, according to a Reuters tally, with the spike in infections hitting election swing states Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Many states have expanded in-person early voting and mail-in ballots as a safer way to vote during the pandemic. "Much more secure than when you send in a ballot, I can tell you that".

Son collectif compte " un nombre très faible de personnes, quelques dizaines, qu'il rassemble pour ses coups d'éclats ". Il a alors annoncé la dissolution du collectif propalestinien "Cheikh Yassine", demain en conseil des ministres.

After voting, President Trump boasted that he was headed to big rallies which - even as he slides in national polls - he said have recently welcomed large crowds, the Associated Press reported.

Sen. Rick Scott weighs in on Florida being an essential state in the 2020 presidential election.

Mr Trump has accused Mr Biden of overstating the health crisis to scare Americans into voting for him.

In Pennsylvania, polls show Mr Biden narrowly leading.

The Trump campaign likened Mr. Biden's put-down to Hillary Clinton referring to Trump supporters as "deplorables" in 2016.

Biden will get some help again on Saturday from Obama, who will hold a drive-in rally in Miami.
