Presidential candidate Joe Biden held a rally in Warm Springs, Georgia today, exactly one week until Election Day. The Peach State, which is expected to vote in favour of Trump, has not backed the Democratic Party for president since 1992.
Video of the event shows dozens in attendance, each abiding by social distancing regulations.
The former vice president's rallies, compared to those of the incumbent, appear to be "low energy," as Biden has made it a point of his campaign to criticize Trump for "waving the white flag" in the fight against the virus. In response to the remark, Trump said that Biden had "waved a white flag on life."
Trump's latest rally, held in Pennsylvania—a key battleground state which Trump won in 2016—saw "thousands" in attendance, with less of an emphasis on social distancing. Temperature checks were required to enter, and masks were encouraged.
At the rally, Trump claimed that Biden’s refusal to hold rallies more Trumpian in size were out of fear that no one would attend. “He said that he doesn’t do these kinds of rallies because of COVID. No, he doesn’t do them because nobody shows up.”
