  • President Donald Trump talks with reporters after voting at the Palm Beach County Main Library

Mr Trump voted at a library in West Palm Beach, near his Mar-a-Lago estate, after switching his permanent residence and voter registration past year from NY to Florida, a must-win battleground for his re-election bid.

"I voted for a guy named Trump", he told reporters.

The coronavirus pandemic still raging across the country has resulted in an unprecedented surge in mail-in voting.

"It was a very secure vote".

While many have states rushed to expand voting by mail this spring due to the pandemic, Democrats have started encouraging voters to cast ballots early and in person, if possible, as the prospect of delayed tabulations and postal service slowdowns loom.

There has been record early voting in the United States election with 53 million people already having voted, largely because of fears over Covid-19.

Mr Trump, who has regularly condemned mail-in voting without evidence as prone to fraud, even though experts say it is as safe as any other method, voted by mail in two elections since he switched his address to Florida, a presidential primary in March and a state election in August. That's a constitutionally prescribed process that would have required 20 Republican senators to vote with the Democrats to have Trump removed. The president will also hold a rally in Wisconsin, which is now experiencing one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the country.

Addressing a socially-distanced crowd at a rally in Miami on Saturday, Obama said that if Biden wins, the USA will have a "normal President", The Hill news website reported."We won't have a President who threatens people with jail for just criticizing him", the former leader said.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has apparently made another embarrassing gaffe.
