The 2020 presidential election is now just five days away.
Both President Trump and Joe Biden are pulling out all stops to win over undecided voters.
The president spent Wednesday campaigning in Arizona, focusing on Latino communities.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made an appearance in a virtual town hall hosted by Oprah Winfrey.
Both nominees also spoke up about Monday’s police involved shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. in Philadelphia.
President Trump said, “You can’t allow that to happen. We’re watching it very closely and we’re waiting for a call. If they want help, we’re there.”
And Biden said, “There is no excuse whatsoever for the looting and the violence.”
