President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, remain locked in a close battle for the White House after Election Day came and went without a winner.
As of Wednesday, millions of votes still needed to be counted in key battleground states. But that didn’t stop the President from falsely claiming that he had already won and that fraud was being committed. Biden urged patience as he spoke to his supporters on election night.
In the months leading up to the election, the candidates had contrasting approaches to how they campaigned during a global pandemic.
Starting in June, Trump held rallies where large crowds were allowed indoors, physical distancing was not required and masks were optional.
Biden temporarily paused in-person campaigning and then ramped up his travel schedule for the final sprint. He opted for smaller in-person events that followed Covid-19 safety and prevention protocols.
