Here’s a reminder of two of the key moments from yesterday, with both Joe Biden and Donald Trump addressing the issues of the west coast’s fires and climate change. In his speech, the Democratic presidential candidate said:
Donald Trump’s climate denial may not have caused these fires and record floods and record hurricanes. But if he gets a second term, these hellish events will continue to become more common, more devastating, and more deadly.
The president, meanwhile, was in California, where he told Wade Crowfoot, the secretary of California’s Natural Resources Agency, that the climate “will start getting cooler, you just watch”.
Crowfoot responded: “I wish science agreed with you,” to which Trump retorted: “I don’t think science knows, actually.”

It’s a big day for diplomacy at the White House. Trump will have a series of bilateral meetings with Bahrain and UAE’s foreign ministers, and then Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. After those, at noon, the “Abraham Accords” signing ceremony will take place on the south lawn. There will be speeches, and then a working lunch.
After that, Trump heads to Philadelphia to take part in an ABC News town hall event. That’s at 9pm ET.
Biden will be campaigning in Florida. He will hold a roundtable with veterans in Tampa, and later attend a Hispanic Heritage Month event in Kissimmee.
