President Donald Trump used a Labor Day press conference to continue to push back on allegations he disparaged members of the military and to attack his Democratic opponents over the timing of a potential coronavirus vaccine.

Republican President Donald Trump, accused by Joe Biden of putting lives at risk in his handling of the coronavirus, on Monday called his Democratic rival "stupid" and demanded an apology for what Trump called anti-vaccine rhetoric.

Trump again dismissed a report in The Atlantic that he had referred to fallen US soldiers as "suckers" and "losers" and highlighted a denial of the story by an aide to former White House chief of staff John Kelly, Zach Fuentes.

Biden's trip to Pennsylvania on Monday kicks off another flurry of travel to battleground states this week by both Biden and Trump as some opinion polls show the race tightening with less than 60 days to go until the November 3 election.

The U.S. jobless rate dipped to 8.4% in August, but economic experts say it could take months for a more robust recovery to take hold. Only about half the 22 million jobs that were lost in the pandemic have been recovered, with many employers paring their payrolls even as they have reopened their businesses.

Johnson will say negotiators will continue to work hard to try to close a deal. The British government had said it wanted a "zero tariff, zero quota" regime.

Biden's campaign is expected to announce the endorsements of three unions, according to a person familiar with the matter: the Laborers' International Union of North America, the International Union of Elevator Constructors and the National Federation of Federal Employees. He termed the article a "phony story" that others have refuted.

Biden on Monday met with three union workers who had served in the US military at a home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The argument follows remarks by Biden's running mate, Sen. Both candidates visited Kenosha last week, where protests over a police shooting of a Black man also sparked a separate fatal shooting of two men by a 17-year-old white teen.

On the economy, Trump predicted historic growth next year.

Biden, who has a thin lead in some other battleground states, is maintaining his advantage over Trump in national polls by about 7 percentage points. "It's the most important election in our history, right now, most important election in our history". Biden is scheduled to be back in Pennsylvania on Friday.
