Ghislaine Maxwell could not hide her frustration during an increasingly heated and bad tempered legal deposition that was unsealed in New York. Several times during the seven-hour exchange, which took place over two days, her anger boiled over as she was forced to answer repeated questions about allegations made by a woman she insisted was a serial liar.

Just looking at ones graded A/B or better going back until October 10, President Trump is ahead with the white voters by an average margin of 3.8 points over the Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden. If that margin was to hold in the actual vote on November 3, it would be the narrowest advantage for the Republican candidate for president since Bill Clinton in both is his successful elections of 1992 and 1996, when he trailed the GOP candidate for president in both cycles by just two points. And it's just 26 per cent of the average margin in this racial demographic going back 44 years.

The bar was set so low — yet Donald Trump still failed to clear the mark. In his final debate performance of the 2020 campaign (and with any luck, his last one ever), the president fumbled the one attack line that his campaign had prepared against Joe Biden for years. The first time Trump tried to hit the former vice president over his son Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings, the senior Biden defended Hunter with the compassion and empathy he so often conveys while recalling the loss of his other son, Beau Biden, or of his first wife and infant daughter in a 1972 car accident.

After decades of rumors and investigations, Mearan was arrested on human trafficking, racketeering and related charges.

Trump made eyebrow-raising claims like Biden taking away seniors' air conditioning and remembering Barack Hussain Obama, as a member of the crowd appeared to make the so-called "white power" dog whistle in the background. Biden, meanwhile, returned to his home state of Delaware to outline his coronavirus pandemic plan a day after the US hit a record for the number of new Covid-19 cases, announcing a mask mandate on all interstate transportation and in all federal buildings.

Mr Trump said: “Nobody has doen more for the Black community than Donald Trump … with the exception of Abraham Lincoln – the possible exception – but the exception of Abraham Lincoln, nobody has done what I've done.

“More realistically...these voters may not be motivated to vote at all in the 2020 election.”
