Watch Trump and Obama face off

Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder of Kansas, a loyal supporter of White House policies who's at risk of losing his seat in the Kansas City area, recently suggested his Democratic opponent, Sharice Davids, may not "actually stand up to President Trump", the Kansas City Star reported. He accused the administration of fear-mongering and distorting the truth to push its agenda on immigration.

Trump defended a racist web video he had tweeted Wednesday depicting Democrats as responsible for an undocumented immigrant killing two police officers. Trump said in West Virginia that he watched Obama's speech aboard Air Force One, reminding some of his most loyal supporters of what he called Obama's broken promises on health care, the freedom of the press and global trade.

Former President Barack Obama campaigns for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillium (L), candidate for Florida governor, and Sen.

"I'm the only one that tells you the facts", Trump said, after telling falsehoods about GOP efforts to take apart Obamacare and, with it, protection for people with pre-existing medical conditions.

In the home stretch of a campaign marked by a recent deadly anti-Semitic attack and the interception of parcel bombs sent to prominent Democrats including Obama, the former president called for defending 'the values that bind us to our fellow citizens, no matter who we are'.

Governor candidate J.B. Pritzker's campaign says Obama will speak during the rally Sunday afternoon at the University of Illinois Chicago's arena.

Scholes: Manchester United back four 'look like nervous wrecks.'
Alexis Sanchez set up Anthony Martial to net his fifth goal in four games and send the teams in at the break level. Now, Alexis and Lingard are after one good week of work with the team. "It's a tough one for us", he said.

"You can vote for a politics that is decent, for a politics that is honest, for a politics that is lawful, for a politics that tries to do right by people", Obama said at the rally in Georgia for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate who is hoping to become the country's first black female governor. Scott is the incumbent governor of Florida but is barred from holding office after his current term due to term limits. Like other Democrats in the state, he still expects Manchin to win. "I think they're going to unapologetically reject it on November 6 here in Florida".

Obama won twice in Florida and lost by relatively narrow margins in Georgia (about 5 points in 2008 and 8 points in 2012) with pitches that largely predicted Gillum and Abrams, who have steeped themselves in progressive populism while being careful not to alienate moderate business interests. Americans will vote in gubernatorial and congressional elections next week.

Florida is emerging as an epicenter of the nation's polarizing politics in the final days of the 2018 campaign.

Trump, Knight and Vice President Mike Pence, a former IN governor, will be rallying supporters behind Republican Mike Braun, who is running against Donnelly IN a closely watched Senate contest.

The competing campaign rallies, including Friday evening events in Georgia and in, placed Trump in a virtual split-screen moment with Obama and set the stage for weekend campaign events for both party heavyweights. 'How can he mobilise those who are already registered to vote to go out and vote. When his question was met with an immediate roar, the President seemed genuinely taken aback.

Again, the audience howled, leading Trump to deadpan: "Then what the hell am I doing here tonight?"
