"A vote for me and the Republican Party is a vote for the American Dream! Over the next four years, we will make America into the manufacturing superpower of the world, and we will end our reliance on China once and for all," his post read.

Former vice president under the 44th US President Barack Obama, Joe Biden, on the other hand argued that even though he was running as a Democrat, he would serve all Americans without bias.

I’m running as a proud Democrat, but I will govern as an American president. I will work with Democrats and Republicans, and I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as for those who do. Because that’s the job of a president," he tweeted.

Biden vowed to rebuild the powerful country's infrastructure, combat climate change and create millions of good-paying, union jobs.

He accused Trump of mismanaging the COVID-19 pandemic leading to death of over 230,000 citizens and also of "ruining" the economy leading to job losses of over 30 million people.

As was earlier reported by Briefly.co.za, Trump said the winner of Tuesday, November 3, poll should be declared before Wednesday, November 4, remarks that have been perceived as voter suppression and intimidation by a section of observers.

The US head of state also poked holes in the Supreme Court decision that allowed absentee ballots to be counted days after the election day, a rule that he claimed could snowball into violence.

"The Supreme Court decision on voting in Pennsylvania is a very dangerous one. It will allow rampant and unchecked cheating and will undermine our entire systems of laws. It will also induce violence in the streets. Something must be done!" Trump wrote on Facebook on Tuesday, November 3, morning.
