Trump has repeatedly ridiculed Biden’s candidacy and suggested that losing the former vice president would be embarrassing.
The New York Times reported that Trump lags behind Biden in polls as well as campaign contributions.
Biden raised a record $ 383 million, compared to Trump’s $ 247 million last month.
Trump has said he is not going to raise more money.
“I could raise more money,” he said. “I would be the biggest fundraiser in the world, but I just don’t want to do that.”
In the weeks leading up to the election, Trump has been sharply criticized for his activities with the coronavirus pandemic, the New York Times bomb report on his tax returns, which showed he paid only $ 750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017, as well as many other legal battles.
