In a final bid to win over voters and swing polls in his favour, Donald Trump is working overtime and hosting rally after rally after rally.
The Hill reports that the president will hold 14 rallies in the three days before Tuesday's election in battleground states such as Pennslyvania, North Carolina, Florida and Michigan.
Monday saw the president hold a mammoth five rallies in one day in an attempt to spread his message to any undecided voters.
The rallies on Sunday, which took place in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida had large gatherings but there was little to no evidence of face masks being worn or social distancing measures being in place.
His first stop was Macomb County, Michigan where he spoke for just over an hour and shortly began complaining about the weather not long after he had started talking. Complaining about the weather has become a recent staple of these rallies.

The president repeats a debunked line that Joe Biden once called young Black men 'super-predators.'
For 47 years, Joe Biden viciously attacked African Americans. We know that. He shipped away your jobs, decimated the black middle-class, and flooded your cities with foreign labor, gangs, and drugs. He opened and he openly called… And I think everyone knows this. He openly called young black men 'super predators.'
With that the president was on the move to Dubuque, Iowa and surprise, one of the first things he talked about was the weather.

Ivanka Trump briefly appears on stage and calls her father a 'warrior.'
This is some serious energy and a little bit of cold, but you all warm up the room. Well, I love you and we all love this man, a warrior through and through who never forgets why he’s in Washington, why he ran for President and who he’s fighting for, which is you, the American people.
Before he signs off in Iowa, Trump again claims that the Obama administration spied on his campaign, even after he had won the 2016 election.

While trying to mock Biden, Trump manages to praise controversial world leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin.
We got endorsed by a lot of great people, we got endorsed by great people and a lot of newspapers are endorsing us because they know that Joe Biden is not up to this job. All you have to do is watch him for about five minutes, he is not up to this job. One thing I can tell you, President Xi, Putin, Kim Jong-un, they’re very sharp, they’re very sharp, they’re all very sharp and we cannot have a leader that’s not sharp.
Unbelievably, Trump claims that Biden wants to delay the vaccine and turn America into a 'prison state.'
Joe Biden is promising to delay the vaccine and turn America into a prison state while letting rioters roam fee. They close your churches, they close your schools, but if you want to riot and burn down the stores and have the anarchists out there and do lots of it, that’s okay. You can’t stop that. You can’t go to school and you can’t go to church. It’s crazy.
A controversial moment happened around 30 minutes into this speech when Trump began reading a poem called The Snake. The poem has long been labelled as 'xenophobic' and 'anti-immigration.' Trump had previously used it at rallies but this is the first time that he has used it in the 2020 campaign.

The president's final rally of the day takes place in Opa-Locka, Florida. Mercifully, he doesn't make any comments about the weather but does convince his supporters to boo the media, prompting some to give cameras the middle finger.

Despite the coronavirus still being a very real and serious threat, Trump mocks Biden for having safety guidelines at his rallies and prompts the crowd to chant 'lock him up' after mentioning Barack Obama.
