On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump spoke at the “Make America Great Again” rally in Tampa, Fla.
During his rally, he compared himself to Abraham Lincoln. After talking about polls, he said he is the next best thing when compared to Lincoln.
“Polls are fake, just like everything else. We are doing well, we are doing well and I’m happy you are doing well. They just came out with a poll, did you hear? The most popular person in the history of the Republican Party is trumped! Can you believe this?”
President Trump continued: “So I said does that include honest Abe Lincoln? He was pretty good, right? Remember I said we might be a little bit wild, they say he’s not acting presidential and I would say it’s a lot easier to act presidential than to do what I do. Anybody can act presidential.”

President Donald Trump on Thursday held a campaign rally in Wisconsin with supporters "packed in like sardines."
At the rally, Trump ridiculed former Vice President Joe Biden for social distancing at campaign appearances with America's death toll over 200,000. Also on Thursday, Biden held a town hall meeting on CNN where he spoke in-depth about the challenges of a coronavirus vaccine.
The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists working to defeat Trump, said that "only one candidate will protect your family from coronavirus" in a new video.

Trump: A Biden presidency would mean ‘no guns, no religion, no energy, no oil’
At President Donald Trump's rally on Thursday night in Mosinee, Wisconsin, he offered his supporters a dire — and baseless — warning about what a Joe Biden presidency would mean for America, and for their lives.
"Remember this in politics — it's always the thing that they say first. That's what they're going to do," said Trump. "No guns, no religion, no energy, no oil. Remember that, remember."
Contrary to Trump's claim, Biden has not called for eliminating any of those four things in his campaign, or indeed at any point of his career in politics.
