The races in Georgia and Florida are, perhaps more than any other on the wide and varied 2018 map, a referendum on the first two years of the Trump era - and whether Democrats have nailed down a path for defeating the President's acolytes in the Republican Party.

Trump covets the Senate seats held by Democrats Joe Donnelly of IN and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, two states that the president won handily IN 2016.

Trump also said "nobody was worse to the press than Obama", after Obama spoke in defense of the First Amendment.

Trump gave a howling hint of what to expect over the campaign's furious final few days during a Friday stop in Indiana.

Obama said the deployment was serving to 'get folks angry and ginned up, ' adding: 'There's just constant fearmongering to distract from the record'.

Yet it landed at the end of a week in which the president has made immigration and border security the paramount issue for Republicans in the midterms, warning without offering evidence that a caravan of immigrants is preparing an "invasion" of the US southern border.

Trump announced earlier this week that he would send thousands of troops to the border to beef up national defences at the border.

In some of his sharpest criticism of Trump yet, the former President cast his successor as a compulsive liar with an authoritarian streak.

Trump will speak at the airport in Pensacola, Florida, on Saturday, likely in support of Republican candidates Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott.

The Republican president and his Democratic predecessor are both lending their considerable political clout to key Senate and gubernatorial battlegrounds in Indiana, Florida and Georgia this weekend, aiming to motivate voters before Tuesday's election. "The only check on that behavior is you and your vote".

During his IN rally, Trump said he and Hall of Fame basketball coach Bob Knight had developed a "great romance".

Opinion polls and non-partisan forecasters generally show Democrats with strong chances of winning 23 additional seats and taking a majority in the House of Representatives, which they could use to launch investigations into Trump's administration and block his legislative agenda. 'How can he mobilise those who are already registered to vote to go out and vote.

"You have a president that's going to be here today and you have an entertainer that's in office right now", said Rashawn Watson, a Democrat from Miami Gardens.

As much as anything Obama and Trump said, the pair's travel schedules underlined a common goal: turning out their parties' bases.

Trump's campaign committee also released a television ad on Friday focused on immigration.
