President Donald Trump will make a pair of campaign stops in Florida on Friday before traveling to Palm Beach County for the weekend

President Trump again pressed his case during Thursday night's debate that Joe and Hunter Biden acted unethically in regard to Hunter's business dealings.

Under the new rules, Trump and Biden will each have two minutes of uninterrupted time to speak at the beginning of every 15-minute segment of the debate. In one stunning moment during the 2016 campaign, in an effort to deflect from the release of the Access Hollywood tape in which he is heard boasting about groping women, Trump held a press conference just before a debate with Hillary Clinton during which he appeared with women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. The alleged disinformation campaign is aimed at tying the former vice president to his son's dealings with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, according to USA officials familiar with the matter. In a lengthy statement, he said he had "seen firsthand" that Joe Biden had discussed foreign business with Hunter - a charge the Biden campaign has repeatedly denied.

Trump's campaign has also received the most donations from people in Los Angeles, followed by Harris County, Texas, and Maricopa County, Arizona.

As the debate swept to climate change, Trump explained his decision to pull the USA out of the Paris climate accord negotiated in 2015, declaring it was an unfair pact that would have cost the country trillions of dollars and hurt businesses.

Trump told Biden: "You've done nothing but the crime bill which put tens of thousands of Black men in jail". "This is a massive country with a massive economy", Trump said. Trump defended his management of the nation's most deadly health crisis in a century, dismissing Biden's warning that the nation had a "dark winter ahead" due to spikes in infections.

Trump repeatedly claimed Biden's plan to tackle climate change and invest in green industries was developed by "AOC plus three", referring to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

That's not necessarily about persuading people to vote for Trump, who himself has worldwide business entanglements and a questionable income tax history that he's never fully disclosed to the voters.

The final debate is being moderated by NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker.

Trump is heading to his home state Friday for campaign rallies at The Villages and in Pensacola. Michael McDonald, the University of Florida professor behind the U.S. Elections Project, estimated that at least 47 million people had already cast ballots as of Thursday afternoon.

When he feels cornered, Trump has often lashed out, going as negative as possible.

President Donald Trump and his allies have used this topic to smear the Bidens over the past year and seized on the recent articles to attack Biden in the final weeks of the presidential election. "It's not about his family and my family, it's about your family and your family is hurting badly", Biden said, pointing directly down the camera.
