President Donald Trump continued his criticism of Democrats and the news media at a campaign rally in Wisconsin Wednesday night, as law enforcement officials across the country grapple with a slew of potentially explosive devices sent to a number of prominent Democratic Party figures as well as CNN.

"The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stories. Have to do it. They’ve got to stop. Bring people together."

The details: In his speech to party supporters, Trump denounced the attempted attacks and vowed to bring those responsible to justice. But the president didn’t name any of the intended recipients: former President Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Former Attorney General Eric Holder.

  • CNN’s New York headquarters also received a suspicious package on Wednesday, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan. The packages resembled an explosive device sent earlier this week to billionaire George Soros, a prominent Democratic donor.

Ahead of the rally, audience members and Trump supporters chanted "lock her up," an attack aimed at Hillary Clinton, while senate candidate Leah Vukmir was speaking.

A more disciplined President Trump held back from the rowdy interruptions at tonight's debate in Nashville, while making some assertions so outlandish that Joe Biden chuckled and even closed his eyes.

  • A Trump campaign adviser told Axios: "He finally listened." 

The result: A real debate.

Biden to Trump: "I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life"

Former VP Joe Biden pushed back Thursday against allegations from President Trump, saying he had never profited from foreign sources. "Nothing was unethical," Biden told debate moderator Kristen Welker about his son Hunter's work in Ukraine while he was vice president.

Why it matters: Earlier on Thursday, Hunter Biden's former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, released a statement saying Joe Biden's claims that he never discussed overseas business dealings with his son were "false."

Trump claims COVID "will go away," Biden calls his response disqualifying

President Trump repeated baseless claims at the final presidential debate that the coronavirus "will go away" and that the U.S. is "rounding the turn," while Joe Biden argued that any president that has allowed 220,000 Americans to die on his watch should not be re-elected.

Why it matters: The U.S. is now averaging about 59,000 new coronavirus infections a day, and added another 73,000 cases on Thursday, according to the Covid Tracking Project. The country recorded 1,038 deaths due to the virus Thursday, the highest since late September.
