Donald Trump hailed the "biggest and best" economic recovery in the history of the United States as he sought to convince voters that his policy of reopening the country was vindicated.

With only days until the election newly released figures showed America's gross domestic product grew at an annualised rate of 33.1 per cent in the three months to September 30, obliterating all previous records.

Mr Trump said he was "so glad this great GDP number came out before November 3rd."

It came as Mr Trump and Mr Biden both descended on the city of Tampa in Florida, a key state which polls have on a knife edge.

三级成人视频For the first time since June he was accompanied on the campaign trail by first lady Melania Trump.

The crowd chanted "we love you!" as Mrs Trump told them: "We are a country of hope. Not a country of fear or weakness.

Mr Trump hailed "explosive economic growth" and repeatedly called "33.1 per cent the "greatest number".

He added: "We're never going to lock down again. We've understood the disease. Joe Biden’s plan is to deliver punishing lockdowns. He’s going to lock you down."

Mr Biden was appearing at a drive-in event in Tampa with attendees remaining at a distance in their cars.

He said: 'I'm not going to shut own the economy, I'm going to shut down the virus.

三级成人视频"We are in a deep hole and President Trump’s failure to act has meant that third quarter growth wasn’t nearly enough to get us out of it."

He added: "The recovery is slowing if not stalling. And the recovery that is happening is helping those at the top, but leaving tens of millions of working families and small businesses behind."

Senior Republicans hoped Mr Trump would make the economy his closing argument to voters.

He has spent recent days proritising unproven accusations of corruption against Mr Biden and his son Hunter.

The president consistently performs well in polls about who voters trust on the economy, usually a key indicator in presidential elections.

三级成人视频The GDP figures showed the fastest growth since the US government started keeping records in 1947, double the previous record of 16.7 per cent set in 1950.

三级成人视频It followed a record shrinkage rate of 31.4 per cent in the second quarter of this year, which plunged the US into its deepest recession since the Great Depression.

However, the recovery is far from complete and US output remains below its level in the fourth quarter of 2019.

三级成人视频More than 10 million of the 22 million jobs lost to the pandemic have not come back, and some may be permanently lost, particularly in the retailing sector.

三级成人视频Economists expect here will be much lower growth figures in the upcoming fourth quarter, and coronavirus cases are surging across the country.

三级成人视频Mr Trump has also been unable to agree a new pandemic relief package with Democrats in Congress.

Tim Murtaugh, Mr Trump's campaign spokesman, said: "This is an absolute validation of President Trump's policies. The president built the world’s best economy once and he's rapidly doing it again.'

But Mr Biden said: "Even with today’s report, GDP still remains $6,000 per household below its pre-crisis level. Today's report is not a victory for these families.

"President Trump’s failure to take action this spring led to gutted businesses, closed schools and tens of millions of people out of work. Donald Trump still doesn’t have a plan, and we still haven’t recovered."

三级成人视频He added: "Yes, GDP rose last quarter, but visits to food banks haven’t slowed, and poverty has grown."

More than 75 million people have already cast early votes.

三级成人视频In a setback for Republicans the US Supreme Court decided not to block the battleground states of Pennsylvania and North Carolina from counting postal votes that arrive several days late. Democrats are more likely to vote by post.

In an encouraging sign for Republicans 1.9 million postal ballots requested by voters in Florida, one million in Pennsylvania, and 850,000 in Michigan, have not yet been returned.
