Trump Makes Appeals To Older Voters In Florida

WASHINGTON: The latest on the presidential campaign (all times local):

2:40 p.m.

President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will face questions on the coronavirus, race issues, and climate change in the final presidential debate next week.

Moderator Kristen Welker of NBC released the six topics for the debate Friday through the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates. They are Fighting COVID-19, American Families, Race in America, Climate Change, National Security, and Leadership.

Trump and Biden will take the stage together for 90 minutes on Oct. 22 in Nashville, three weeks after their first meeting in Cleveland.

A second outing planned for Oct. 15 was called off after Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis and his refusal to participate in a virtual debate. Trump and Biden held town halls on different networks at the same time instead.



President Donald Trump is holding rallies in Ocala, Florida, and Macon, Georgia, on Friday night. His Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, is in Michigan, where he is talking about health care in Southfield, holding a virtual meeting with Black faith leaders and mobilizing voters in Detroit.

President Donald Trump says he’s moving heaven and earth to protect older people from the coronavirus.

Trump is making a direct appeal to older voters during a Friday appearance in Fort Myers, Florida. Polls have shown that Trump’s support among this voting bloc has slipped partly because of his uneven handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more people in the United States than in any other country. Older people are among the groups most vulnerable to the COVID-19 disease it causes.

Trump says in the speech: I will protect you, I will defend you, and I will fight for you with every ounce of energy and conviction that I have.

The president is also assuring older people that they will be first in line for a vaccine when one is approved. He adds that he will provide them with treatments like those he received at no cost.

Trump recently recovered from COVID-19 and spent three days in the hospital.
