President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden are set to take part in the final debate as part of the presidential campaign, which many see as Trump’s last chance to advance in the election polls before November 3.
Yesterday, John Ratcliffe, Trump’s head of national intelligence, and Christopher Ray, head of the FBI, said Iran and Russia had hacked voters details and used them to manipulate election results. Ratcliffe claims that Iranian hackers have tried to disrupt Trump’s election campaign. The report says hackers in Iran have mailed Democrat voters “Vote for Trump or else.” The emails were sent to the right-wing “Proud Boys.”

Italy and Germany have recorded the highest number of corona infections in a single day, leading to the possibility of a full-scale lockdown in Europe, as seen earlier this year. Corona infections have also increased in the UK.
The rise in infection in the second phase of the corona is affecting economic data in Europe. German consumer confidence has declined, as has France’s business confidence.
The European Central Bank is preparing to increase its bond-buying activities.
Crude prices have remained stable since a report released by the Department of Energy Information on Wednesday showed that US gasoline reserves rose 2 million barrels last week.
