As the US election draws near, the race between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden heats up. Here's the latest news around campaigns, SCOTUS vacancy, voting, and more.

Yeah, because, it's ONLY about the money. And if a few of the free athletes should die, well, thats a sacrifice that they're willing to make for the almighty dollar. 200k Americans dead and we have morons demanding to play football in the middle of a highly contagious pandemic. This is why life won’t return to normal for a very long time

MeetThePress lol yeah, ok! MeetThePress ------WHO REPLACES TODD-THE DAY AFTER TRUMPS LANDSLIDE---🙃🙃🙃🙃 I thought better of my alma mater, Northwestern. And they had the gall to ask for money today. I liked it better when football wasn’t their god and their purple was more blue than red. Biden campaign puts our an ad claiming Trump canceled football, but then Trump gets blamed for making it political. Only in America.

MeetThePress 'Trump biggest fear is, if that tax return was released, there's a whole slew of accountants and forensic accountants that will rip through it and he will end up with a massive tax bill, penalties, fines and possibly even tax fraud,' Michael Cohen said. President who asked not be be identified?!!?! So much bs. If you feel that strongly about it- identify yourself.

MeetThePress MeetThePress Fair enough.. Then let’s see all the documents and communications that led to the previous decision;) Victory lap and Trump in the same sentence? Trump couldn't run 10'feet for a cheeseburger, let alone take a lap around the presidential limo! Victory lap, HA! Just say Trump lies and takes credit for big 10 football! However, Trump takes credit for tying his own laces!

TrumpLiesEverytimeHeSpeaks TrumpLied200KDied realDonaldTrump has been lying and trying to take credit for everything good, but can never take responsibility for his faults. He is DonTheCon. TRUMP BEST PRESIDENT WE EVER BEEN SO LUCKY TO HV... THE MAN DONT NEED US WE NEED HIM... THIS GUY KNOWS THESE SCUMBAGS INSIDE N OUT BUT KEEP BELIEVING THOSE DUMO RATS....

So you media clowns put quotes around a so called Big Ten President but ya just can’t seem to use his/her name. Trump lie again. Isn’t that a surprise realDonaldTrump ALWAYS tries to take the credit for things he didn’t do. You can’t trust a liar. A narcissistic liar. GOP WhiteHouse senatemajldr TheJusticeDept WhiteHouse IvankaTrump

Haha ... more liberal tears!! Sure - haha BS So, the response to the pandemic that he gets blamed for 24/7 and the state of the pandemic which he also gets blamed gir 24/7 had “ABSOLUTELY NOTHING” to do with your decision?!?! You’re dumb and your the president of a university. Trump 2020 F 45 and football! Take a knee.,

Oh yeah, sure. lol. What a putz. Always taking credit for others’ achievements. Joe Biden win 100% Of course, Trump had zero to do with it He is a con and a liar Oh yes Trump did.... they can save their lil’ opinion for Nov 3rd but Trump pointed them in the right direction of rapid COVID-19 test. He also opened a lifeline to call him for whatever they need. Joe Biden didn’t... he doesn’t even know the game of football.

The Big 10 university presidents hate Trump. Congrats, you found one fart sniffing liberal university president who felt like taking an unsubstantiated shot at President Trump. If Trump doesn’t put pressure on the Big 10 to play a few weeks ago they never reverse their decision. October, November and December may be the most devastating fall months in American History, says epidemiology. THIS IS 100% political....putting 18 year olds in harms way for money and Trump.

realDonaldTrump PressSec WhiteHouse Trump didn't have a damn thing to do with it -- he takes credit for what others have done and blames others for the ***** way he has handled COVID-19 ... So... it’s really abt money. As usual, taking credit where it doesn’t belong. How come every damn time he opens his mouth a lie falls out? He better taper them lips. Lack of turd tapering could cause lipsmak. Ouchie

Lies. So they will risk it even with many colleges going back to online learning MeetThePress Majority over rules doctors in government Strong majorities of Americans are still willing to go grocery shopping (93%), get a haircut (65%) and go to work (79%), according to new ABC News/Ipsos poll. Every day he just keeps painting. When will this Lie-a-Thon be over? It's been 4 fukina years!
