The President also criticized Andrew Gillum, the Democratic Party's candidate for the post of Florida Governor, for seeking to abolish the federal agency, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which he said was "full of patriots" who arrested 127,000 illegal immigrants a year ago.

In a packed day of campaigning ahead of Tuesday's congressional midterm elections, Trump continued a blitz of rallies urging voters to keep his Republican Party in control of Congress, while Democrats appeared to notch a win in their efforts to halt the spread of misinformation online.

"On Tuesday you can vote for a politics that's decent, for a politics that's honest, for a politics that is lawful, for a politics that tries to do right by people", Obama told a rally in Georgia.

The US President Donald Trump has been hitting the campaign trail hard on behalf of the Republicans.

Democrats are targeting four Republican House incumbents, with Lauren Underwood and Sean Casten looking to unseat GOP Reps.

Trump has focused his closing midterm argument on immigration, stoking anxiety about several caravans of Central American migrants traveling to the southern border.

"I'm not a huge Rick Scott supporter", said Allison Chiddo, a West Palm Beach resident who attended Trump's Estero rally.

Obama's public appearances coincided with Trump's campaign visits to West Virginia and IN, where he urged voters to back Republican candidates for the US Senate. The Democratic Party candidate is hoping to become the country's first black female governor, Deutsche Welle reported.

If you haven't voted yet, you can still take part in early voting through Sunday, November 4 in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

Opinion polls and non-partisan forecasters generally show Democrats with strong chances of winning 23 additional seats and taking a majority in the House of Representatives, which they could use to launch investigations into Trump's administration and block his legislative agenda.

In the last stages of the campaign, Trump is dueling with Obama, who returned to the public eye at a Florida rally on Friday.

Shortly afterward, Trump said in West Virginia that he'd watched Obama's speech on television aboard Air Force One. This weekend will see them making stops in a total of seven states.

They expect that number to skyrocket as Election Day nears. Republicans say the law is necessary to deter voter fraud. Obama could energise Democratic voters and drive up turnout, she added. DeSantis also railed at Gillum for saying that Trump should be impeached. For Democrats in particular, Saturday's dramas began on Friday evening.

Scott, the Republican governor seeking a Senate seat, and Gillum, the Tallahassee Democratic mayor running for governor, rushed back to the state capital after a gunman killed two people and injured five others before killing himself.
