Donald Trump is trying to make up ground against Joe Biden in key swing states in the Rust Belt with one week left before Election Day.
Republicans in the Senate confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court in a little more than 30 days. The Supreme Court now has a Republican majority of six justices to three.
The Senate has been unable to agree on a stimulus bill that the House passed more than 160 days ago. The Senate is now adjourned until Nov. 9.
Therefore, it's unlikely a stimulus bill will be enacted prior to Election Day to support struggling Americans fighting the ongoing pandemic that has seen coronavirus cases climb in several U.S. states.
