Trump has been to the non-denominational International Church of Las Vegas and Biden’s schedule is for him to come to Durham in North Carolina for a voter mobilization event.
President Donald Trump made a rare visit to church on Sunday as he and Democratic rival Joe Biden battled each other in key states across the country in the November 3 election.
Trump attended services at the non-denominational International Church in Las Vegas before raising money in Newport Beach, California and holding an evening rally in Carson City, Nevada. Biden’s schedule took him to North Carolina for a Durham voter mobilization event and a virtual meeting with African American religious leaders. That morning he prayed in a church in Wilmington, Delaware.
For Trump, it was a return to a church he attended as a candidate in October 2016. At that time, he received a prayer on the stage and attended an affiliated Christian school to see students and make comments on alternatives to traditional public schools.
Like almost every week, Biden went to St. Joseph’s on Brandywine. He and his wife Jill came in wearing dark face masks. She was carrying a bouquet of flowers, including pink roses.
The church is only a few minutes drive from Biden’s house. Biden’s son Beau, who died of brain cancer in 2015, is buried in the cemetery on the premises. Joe and Jill Biden visited the tomb after the service.
If elected, Biden would be only the second Roman Catholic president in US history and the first since John F. Kennedy. Biden speaks often about his beliefs and what it means in his life.
Trump attends church much less often, but has received strong support from white evangelical leaders and often receives groups of pastors in the White House.
With just over two weeks until election day in national and crucial polls on the battlefield state, Trump has adhered to a stricter schedule since campaigning again after being infected with the coronavirus.
Trump enters the final phase of the campaign with a significant financial advantage – an extremely unusual situation for an incumbent operator. After building a massive cash advantage early in the race, his campaign was spending a lot of money. Biden kept expenses down and benefited from a ton of donations that have raised nearly $ 1 billion over the past three months.
