President Donald Trump 's campaign has released another TV ad that dishonestly tries to raise fears about former Vice President Joe Biden 's views on policing.

Their first debate is slated for Sept. 29 in Cleveland on Fox News.The president fired up his hundreds of supporters that gathered at an airport hangar in Mosinee, which is a country he won in 2016. Trump's campaign is focusing on turning out base supporters in more rural parts of the state in order to offset deficits he is expected to face against Biden in cities and suburbs.Few attendees wore face masks and supporters stood elbow-to-elbow, making no effort to social distance.

During his campaign 's highest week of ad spending, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden tweeted out an ad Tuesday attacking President Donald Trump for comments he has made over the pandemic. Specifically, the ad suggests that Trump has called the virus a hoax.

On Tuesday morning, the Trump campaign posted an eight-second video on Facebook that it titled "Joe Biden completely botches the Pledge of Allegiance." It was the same clip that was tweeted on Monday, with the same caption, by Republican National Committee rapid response director Steve Guest; Guest's tweet generated more than 13,500 retweets, at least 1.5 million video views and numerous comments questioning Biden's mental acuity.

The clip shows Biden saying this: "I pledge allegiance to the United States of America. One nation, indivisible, under God. For real."

If that was indeed Biden's attempt to recite the entire 31-word Pledge of Allegiance, it would indeed be wrong. But it wasn't.

President Donald Trump and his campaign promoted a dishonestly edited video that wrongly made it seem as if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had accidentally endorsed Trump .

Facts First: Biden was not trying to recite the entire Pledge of Allegiance when he said these words. He was referring, more than 22 minutes into a campaign speech, to particular phrases in the pledge -- to make a point about how he would not divide the country between "red states" and "blue states" as Trump does.

Biden made the remark in a campaign speech Monday in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, in which he castigated Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

At this particular moment, Biden was criticizing Trump's comments about how the US's coronavirus death statistics would supposedly look good if you didn't count the deaths in "blue states."

Biden correctly pointed out that even counting only the deaths in states Trump won in 2016 would give the US the second-highest total in the world, behind Brazil. Biden then argued that Trump has a "deeply flawed and divisive view of the United States, this nation and the job he holds."

Biden's low-key campaign style worries some Democrats

  Biden's low-key campaign style worries some Democrats WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — The final stretch of a presidential campaign is typically a nonstop mix of travel, caffeine and adrenaline. But as the worst pandemic in a century bears down on the United States, Joe Biden is taking a lower key approach. Since his Aug. 11 selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, Biden has had 22 days where he either didn't make public appearances, held only virtual fundraisers or ventured from his Delaware home solely for church, according to an Associated Press analysis of his schedules.

Biden 's campaign manager Pat Caddell took responsibility for mixing up pages of a planned Biden speech At another reception for an Irish Prime Minister, this time Enda Kenny in 2012, Biden said, "You Multiple women had accused Biden of making them feel uncomfortable by touching them and

"Think about what he's saying," Biden said. "He's saying if you live in a state like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, states with Democratic governors, you're not his problem. He has no obligation to you. He's not responsible for you as President, your family or your well-being. I don't see the presidency that way. I don't pledge allegiance to red states of America or blue states of America. I pledge allegiance to the United States of America. One nation, indivisible, under God. For real. I'm running as a proud Democrat, but I'm not going to govern as a Democratic president: I'm going to govern as president."

It's entirely clear in context that Biden was not trying to recite the whole pledge here.

For the record, the whole pledge reads as follows: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
