MORE than 22 million US voters have cast their ballots already in the US presidential election, the Associated Press news agency has reported.
That corresponds to 16 percent of all the votes that were cast in 2016, the news agency said.
The high early turnout – propelled partly by the COVID-19 pandemic – is leading election experts to predict that a record 150 million votes may be cast this year and turnout rates could be higher than in any US presidential election since 1908.
Speaking at a campaign rally in Macon, Georgia, Trump said “we have the most successful economy” in the world.
“Our economy is setting records,” he told the crowd.
“I would never give up what we have achieved. Nobody has achieved in the history of our country what we have achieved with the military, tax cuts … space force.”
