Biden says American values are being ‘shredded’ under Trump

"If you want to protect America's laws borders, sovereignty and even your dignity, you need to go out today and vote", Trump said as he asked supporters to raise their right hands in a pledge to go to the polls.

"But my God, think of what's going on now, " Biden said, bemoaning that those values "are being shredded by a president who's all about himself".

"The Democrats don't care about what their extremist immigration agenda will do to your communities, to your hospitals - what about your hospitals and to your schools", Trump said. But Biden says Trump is "all about himself".

The president did not provide any details on the proposal, which would follow a landmark tax overhaul previous year that Republicans had hoped would ensure they'd keep control of Congress after the midterms.

Trump tweeted this afternoon, "Heading to Nevada to help a man who has become a good friend, Senator Dean Heller".

Heller is the only Republican senator seeking re-election in a state Democrat Hillary Clinton won in 2016.

The former vice president also predicted that "three and six Republicans in the Senate" will "vote the right way" as well.

The rally took place as early voting began Saturday and shortly before Trump's rally several hundred miles away in rural Elko, Nevada.

As part of the so-called "Blue Wave", Democrats are anticipating picking up five governorships in the industrial Midwest as voters tire of the Republican Party and President Donald Trump.

Former US Vice President Joe Biden spoke during a rally at the Culinary Workers Union Hall Local 226 in Las Vegas on Saturday. And on Monday, former President Barack Obama is returning to Nevada, a state that he won in both his 2008 and 2012 campaigns. However, the Senate, where 60 votes are needed to pass most legislation and Republicans control only 51 votes, has no plans to take up the bill. He has sought to focus on immigration as one of the defining election issues and has falsely accused Democrats of wanting "open borders" and encouraging illegal immigration.

The number of people who will effectively vote against the President was beaten only by Bush in 2006 when 39% of registered voters said they would use their vote against him.The intensity of voter feeling about the President does give him some hope, however, as it raises the prospect that he could defy precedent and recreate that feverish support among the GOP grass roots that confounded pollsters and resulted in his shock victory two years ago.Certainly, no recent President has done so much to cultivate his base voters, and so little to reach out to everyone else than Trump during his two years in office. He warned of dire consequences if Kyrsten Sinema (SIN'-uh-muh), the Democratic congresswoman challenging McSally, is victorious. All of the states have competitive Senate races where Republican candidates are locked in tight races or hoping to unseat a Democratic incumbent.He heads out on the trail looking to change the subject after facing sharp criticism for his tame response to the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
