Trump delivered remarks on jobs and the economy at Boeing's Charleston, South Carolina plant. As he approached the podium, he joined the crowd in chanting "USA! USA! USA!" He also applauded Boeing for their work on their new plane — the 787 Dreamliner — which he toured before speaking to the crowd. "That is one, beautiful airplane," he said. Other takeaways:

  • "We want products made in America, by American hands... Our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports but on products made here in the USA."
  • We will stop other countries from their "tremendous cheating," and cut regulations and taxes so that the U.S. is on a level playing field.
  • There will be a "very substantial price to pay" for companies who fire their employees and move their facilities overseas.
  • "We are going to fully rebuild the military... we are looking seriously at a big order. We're also working on the Air Force One project, which was tough for previous administrations, but we're getting closer and closer."

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.
