Bruno Rodríguez describes electoral race in the US as a political show

Havana, Oct 19.- Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez today described the electoral race in the United States as a political show to guarantee votes, while the main demands of the voters are unknown.

Rodríguez deplored on his official Twitter account that the campaign between the current president, Donald Trump, and his Democratic rival Joe Biden wastes close to 10 billion dollars to guarantee votes without taking into account social demands.

"The media show the political show and the American dream, while those who demand their rights in the streets of the country are silenced," the Foreign Minister also wrote.

According to press reports, both contestants intensified their proselytizing activities on the ground in recent days, before their final debate that will be on October 22 at Belmont University, in the city of Nashville, Tennessee, at 9:00 p.m. local time.

The pulse of Republicans and Democrats occurs in the midst of an unprecedented boom in early voting, since as of this Sunday more than 27 million people cast their vote in person or by mail, according to the Elections Project, led by the University of Florida.

The electoral race in the northern nation advances marked by social protests against racism or in defense of women's rights.

Two days ago, thousands of protesters condemned the election of conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who will imminently fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's vacancy on the Supreme Court.

Organizers announced more than 400 protests across the country, including New York, Boston and Los Angeles in rejection of the candidate of Donald Trump, against abortion that generates tension in "pro-choice" activists. (PL) (Photo: File)
