Trump in New Jersey, Biden in Delaware: The 2020 campaign trail
With Election Day just a little over a month away, the showdown between President Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden is coming to a head.
Following Tuesday night’s raucous and fiery debate in Cleveland — Biden called Trump the “worst president ever,” while Trump took shots at the former vice president over his son’s drug addiction — the candidates will hold fundraising events with supporters.
Here’s where the campaigns will be traveling and how they’ll be spending their time on Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020.

From there, Trump will return to Washington and virtually attend New York City’s annual Al Smith Dinner, which was moved online because of the coronavirus pandemic. The dinner raises money for Catholic charities.
