Five days before the fateful elections are held in the U.S., both presidential nominees are holding campaign events at swing states – and escalating their tone. In a rally held in Jacksonville, Florida, an especially crucial swing state, Republican nominee Donald Trump claimed that he was certain of his imminent victory and clarified why it was of utmost importance that his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton be prevented from reaching the White House.
In his speech, Trump claimed that the Clintons were the “filthy past” of the United States, adding that he will “drain the sewage” when he wins the elections. The Republican nominee went on to attack Clinton’s immigration policy, claiming that she wants a 550% increase of immigrants from Syria and will lead to the spread of radical Islam in the U.S. He continued to ridicule Clinton, claiming that the Chinese thought Hillary was “a joke.”

Earlier today, U.S. President Barack Obama spoke at a Clinton support rally held in Florida and called on voters to go out and elect the Democratic nominee. Obama also reiterated his warning to the American people from the possibility that Trump will become the next president. “Donald Trump is uniquely unqualified to be president,” he stated. “I’m not joking. He is temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief.”

Meanwhile, Reuters News Agency reported that the cooperation between Clinton and Obama will continue in full force right up until the a day before the elections, when a rally will be held at another important swing state – Pensylvania. Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill, as well as Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, are all expected to take part in the event, which will be held next Monday, less than 24 hours before polling stations open across the US.
