Donald Trump and Barack Obama turn out for last-minute midterm election campaigning - in pictures

Donald Trump meets voters in Tennessee and Georgia, while the former US president appeared in Indiana and Chicago

The US President and a former president are putting in their closing arguments with time running out before crucial midterm elections.

Donald Trump urged voters in Tennessee and Georgia on Sunday to back Republicans in state-wide races, warning that Democrats favour high taxes and illegal immigration.

Democrats offered the former president Barack Obama for their closing argument. Appearing in Indiana, and later in Chicago, Mr Obama warned Democrats not to be distracted by lies and fear-mongering.

Mr Trump appeared to distance himself from the fate of House Republican candidates as he devotes his final time before Tuesday's midterm elections to helping Senate and gubernatorial candidates.
