Trump has repeatedly mocked Biden’s candidacy and suggested it would be embarrassing to lose to the former vice president.
The New York Times reported that Trump lags behind Biden in polls as well as campaign dues.
Biden raised a record $ 383 million, compared to Trump’s $ 247 million last month.
Trump has said he has no plans to raise more money.
“I could raise more money,” he said. “I would be the biggest fundraiser in the world, but I just don’t want to do it.”
In the last few weeks before the election, Trump was sharply criticized for his work on the coronavirus pandemic, a New York Times bombing report on his tax returns that shows he paid only $ 750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017, since as well as countless other legal battles.
