The 45th US head of state cast his vote at a polling station in balmy West Palm Beach.

He announced the news on his Facebook page on Saturday, October 24 terming it a great honour.

"Just voted. A great honour," he wrote.

Trump who previously complained that mail-in voting led to fraud hailed in-person voting as very "secure" event though he did not elaborate how.

“It was a very secure vote. Much more secure than when you send in a ballot, I can tell you that,” he said.

By voting early, the 74-year-old Republican leader became one of the nearly 55 million Americans who cast early ballots amid the COVID-19 pandemic that made in-person voting difficult.

According to several opinion polls, Biden is likely to beat Trump in the elections as he is ahead in battleground states.

As earlier reported by TUKO.co.ke, the second presidential debate between Donald Trump and his rival Joe Biden of the Democratic Party was seemingly calm as they traded accusations of graft and clashed on the COVID-19 pandemic that has ravaged the powerful nation.

Unlike in the first debate, the president referred to the Democratic candidate as Joe and even lauded the moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC News for how she handled the debate.

According to a new poll by Gallup, Trump could still have a chance of being re-elected as most American believe they are better off under him that they were four years ago.
