Donald Trump voted for himself

President Donald Trump voted in his adopted home of Florida before hitting the campaign trail for rallies in three swing states on Saturday.

After casting his ballot, he joked with reporters saying: “I voted for a guy named Trump.”

Trump cast his ballot at a library in West Palm Beach, near his Mar-a-Lago resort, after switching his permanent residence and voter registration last year from New York to Florida, a must-win battleground for his re-election bid.

About 54.2 million Americans have already cast early ballots, a pace that could lead to the highest voter turnout in more than a century, according to data from the US Elections Project.

Many states have expanded in-person early voting and mail-in ballots as a safer way to vote during the pandemic.
