Trump's plans include campaigning for Senate challenger Matt Rosendale in Montana in the afternoon before returning to Florida for his second trip there in four days after spending Wednesday night in Fort Myers. While President Donald Trump likes to get aggressive with hecklers and has even encouraged supporters to resort to violence to shut them up, Obama favors a decidedly more civilized approach that is often a joy to watch.

The competing campaign rallies, including Friday evening events in Georgia and in, placed Trump in a virtual split-screen moment with Obama and set the stage for weekend campaign events for both party heavyweights.

According to Deutsche Welle, Obama also spoke in Florida on Friday and urged voters to turn out for candidates from the Democrats and criticized Republican efforts to dismantle his political legacy. Should Gillum win, he will be Florida's first black governor.

Abrams' campaign wasn't impressed, and in a statement Saturday morning suggested Kemp's harsh words were undermined by his behavior on the trail and his scheduled embrace of Trump at a rally on Sunday. Obama will return to the trail Sunday, headlining rallies for Donnelly in Gary, Ind., and in his hometown of Chicago for J.B. Pritzker, who is running for IL governor.

Evidence of this love and respect towards Obama gave was clearly visible during his address in support of senator Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

The final weekend of campaigning in the midterms might come down to this: Donald Trump versus Barack Obama.

Steinitz damns Khashoggi killing but deems Riyadh ally against Iran
The Saudi government initially denied Khashoggi had been killed then later said he died in an unplanned "rogue operation". Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke out on Friday about the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's.

It has been almost two years since former U.S. president Barack Obama left the White House.

"You have a president that's going to be here today and you have an entertainer that's in office right now", said Rashawn Watson, a Democrat from Miami Gardens.

"That's why I'm here", Trump said.

As much as anything Obama and Trump said, the pair's travel schedules underlined a common goal: turning out their parties' bases.

"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking". A total of 3.3 percent said they were undecided. More people entered the labor force and wages made their biggest gains since 2009.

Meanwhile, campaign ads are sending conflicting messages. And a Democrat promises to back tougher immigration enforcement.

Patriots lead Packers 7-3 after one
In what promises to be the best game of the week, the Patriots will need their star wide receiver to play a big role. This means that Rodgers must find other options in the passing game to keep the ball moving down the field.

Earlier in the day, Trump responded to Obama's barrage by mocking the former president over what he described as a "very small crowd" in Miami.

Trump also defended his decision to focus nearly exclusively on the migrants and immigration in the closing days of the election.

The committee is the election arm of House Republicans, who have backed Trump's moves to bolster the coal industry by rolling back environmental regulations.

In Montana, Rosendale trails incumbent Democratic Sen. It features images of Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented immigrant who was convicted of killing two sheriff's deputies in California in 2014, and a migrant caravan moving through Mexico toward the US border. "I do not want our borders overrun".

"I think it is a signal of how important Georgia is to America", Abrams said during an appearance Saturday morning on MSNBC.

"Stop the caravan. Vote Republican", the ad concludes. The rallies are part of Trump's multistate blitz in the run-up to Tuesday's balloting, when control of the House and Senate _ and perhaps the future of Trump's agenda _ are at stake.
