"As my grandfather would say, 'This guy's gone around the bend if he thinks we've turned the corner,'" Biden said. "Things are getting worse, and he continues to lie to us about circumstances."
Biden and Trump were courting early voters on Sunday in the competitive states of North Carolina and Nevada, as the final presidential debate looms later this week.
Some 27.7 million Americans have already cast ballots either by mail or in person ahead of the Nov. 3 election, according to the U.S. Elections Project at the University of Florida. The record-shattering figure is being driven in part by concerns about crowds at polling sites on Election Day amid the pandemic.
- More than 217,000 Americans dead because of COVID-19, nearly 4,000 here in the state of North Carolina. On Friday, we saw the highest number of new cases in one day since July. In the last two days, worst days since July.
Yet, the other night, Trump said in one of his rallies, we've turned the corner. And my grandfather would say, this guy's gone around the bend if he thinks we turned the corner.

Turned a corner? Things are getting worse. He continues to lie to us about the circumstances. Experts say we're likely to lose as many as 200,000 additional lives nationwide between now and the end of the year, all because this president cares more about his Park Avenue perspective on the world, the stock market, than he does about you.
Guy refuses to follow the science. It's estimated that if we just wore mask-- if we just wore a mask, we'd save between now and the end of the year 100,000 lives. His own head of the CDC said that. And you know what, what's really sad about this?
The president knew how dangerous this virus was all the way back in January and he hid it from the country. He's on record. He told Bob Woodward in a taped interview that the disease was deadly, much worse than the flu.
And here's what he did. According to the "New York Times" three, four days ago, his administration gave Wall Street investors a head up-- head's up, but he didn't tell us, just his friends on Wall Street. That's why they made so much money by, quote, selling short. Well, who got sold short? Y'all got sold short.
