President Donald Trump made a pair of campaign stops in Florida on Friday before traveling to Palm Beach County for the weekend.

The president held a "Make America Great Again" rally in The Villages, and later on Friday night in Pensacola.

Targeting the mainly older population in The Villages that's retired or approaching retirement, Trump said the election is a choice between a "Trump super recovery" or a "Biden depression."

"It's a choice between optimism, patriotic vision for American success, or Joe Biden's dark, dismal, gloomy," Trump said. "I think Joe Biden proved last night he's not capable of being President of the United States."

Later on Friday, Trump will travel to Palm Beach International Airport, where Air Force One is expected to land around 11 p.m.

The White House said President Trump will cast his ballot on Saturday in West Palm Beach, however, an exact location has not been determined.


President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are ready to package their divergent personal styles and policy prescriptions into closing messages for the final sprint to Election Day.

With their final debate behind them, the coronavirus is a central topic for both candidates on Friday as Trump heads to Florida and Biden prepares to address the topic in Delaware.

The virus killed more than 1,000 Americans on Thursday alone.

The president rosily predicted during the night's debate that the virus will "go away." Biden countered that the nation was headed toward "a dark winter."
