is set to actively jump into campaigning for his deputy for eight years and current Democrat nominee
to revive his reelection chances.
Here are the latest developments from the US presidential election campaign trail:

Kamala Harris says she would be back on road on Monday
Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris has said she would resume her campaign on Monday. The California Senator had suspended her campaign early this week as “abundance of caution” after two of her staffers tested positive for Covid-19. She has tested negative.
Trump heads to Michigan, Wisconsin in re-election campaign push
The former New York businessman prevailed in Michigan and Wisconsin in 2016 but surveys show him running behind Biden, the former vice president, in those states this year. Trump’s advisers have long seen Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as Pennsylvania, as key to his chances of re-election. The president is also playing defense in traditional Republican strongholds, including Arizona, where he plans to campaign on Monday, and Georgia, where he campaigned on Friday night.
Twitter CEO says it was wrong to block links to Biden story
Twitter was wrong to block weblinks to an unverified political story, CEO Jack Dorsey said on Friday, as the company responded to criticism over its handling of the story that had prompted cries of censorship from the right.
Twitter and Facebook had moved quickly this week to limit the spread of the story published by the conservative-leaning New York Post, which cited unverified emails from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son that were reportedly discovered by President Donald Trump’s allies. The story has not been confirmed by other publications.
Biden warns Trump wants to scrap health law
Campaigning outside Detroit on Friday, the Democratic nominee continued his attack on Trump over Obamacare, saying the President in reality wants to scrap the 2010 Affordable Care Act. That law for the first time set a federal standard that requires insurers to offer health insurance to customers regardless of their health history. Biden says Trump “can only see from his penthouse” in Manhattan and doesn’t see most Americans’ daily struggles.
