- President Donald Trump and Joe Biden are in a last-minute push to rally supporters ahead of the polls today
- Both Presidential candidates recently took to Instagram to call on voters to support them
- While Trump made use of a short clip, Biden opted for a throwback picture of himself and Obama
The whole world's eyes are on the US as Americans ake the polls. For months before now, both Trump and Biden, the two strongest candidates in the election, have been going all out to secure votes.
It seems that both Presidential candidates are not done trying to get in some last minutes votes. Just hours ago, both Biden and Trump took to popular social media app, Instagram to call on voters to vote for them.
While President Trump opted for a lights camera action approach - sharing a clip of himself shaking hands with important American public figures, jeering crowds and spending time with family - Biden headed down a more simple road, only sharing a picture of himself and Obama with a humble caption that read:
"12 years ago, I was given the honor to serve you as Vice President alongside President @BarackObama.We accomplished so much, but I'm not done yet. Today, I'm asking you to put your faith in me once again — I won't let you down."
Both posts racked up hundreds and thousands of likes and comments from American citizens who are understandably anxious about what the results will yield. Trump received 236,987 views, while Biden secured 338 145 likes for his post.
In other US Presidential election news, Briefly.co.za reports, in anticipation of a protest that might ensue after the outcome of the coming United States (US) elections, the government of the nation is expected to build a massive fence around the White House.
The same fence erected during heated protests earlier in 2020, will surround the entire park including the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the Treasury Building, Ellipse and Lafayette Square.
According to a source who spoke with CNN, the structure will cover from the 15th Street to Constitution Avenue as well as the 17th Street. Moreover, the barricade will then run up to H Street and across by Lafayette, and then get back to the 15th Street. In the opinion of some political observers in the US, this is one of the biggest instances of a government preparing for a possible social upheaval.
