Trump is expected to hit nearly a dozen states in his final attempt to bounce back from Democrat Joe Biden, including the trip to Maine on Sunday and the trip to Nebraska on Tuesday.
Both states cast electoral votes by congressional district and could be vital in tight elections.
He will hold 11 rallies in the last 48 hours alone.
Biden also plans to adopt his itinerary to reach the six battlefield states that the campaign sees as key to his chances, some with socially distant personal events and others with virtual events.
Tomorrow the former Vice President is traveling to Georgia, a state that has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate in more than a quarter of a century, but whose polls show a close race.
The last week of the campaign collides with mounting concerns about a public health crisis in the US.
Trump is keen to get voters to focus on almost everything else and fears he will lose if the election turns into a referendum on how he will deal with the pandemic.
Biden is working to make the race just that, meeting Mr. Trump with the virus and presenting himself as a safer, more stable alternative.
The stakes were clear this weekend when the White House became the spot for a second outbreak of the virus in a month.
Several close advisers to Vice President Mike Pence, including his chief of staff Marc Short, have tested positive for the virus.
Mike Pence, however, insisted on maintaining his aggressive political calendar, despite being viewed as a “close contact” of his advisor and claiming the privileges of being a “key employee”.
The recent outbreak has served as a powerful metaphor for the different approaches taken by the Trump and Biden campaigns against the virus.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said yesterday, “We are not going to control the pandemic.” The focus should be on containment and treatment.
“A normal life”
Trump is aiming to bring thousands of people, most with no face covering, to some of the upper Midwestern states that are bearing the brunt of the wave.
“We want normal life to resume,” Trump said yesterday. “We just want a normal life.”
Urged to explain why the pandemic cannot be contained, Meadows said, “Because it’s a contagious virus, just like the flu.”
He told CNN’s State Of The Union “that the government is focused on bringing effective therapeutics and vaccines to market.
In a statement, Biden said Meadows’ comments continued as the Trump administration “waved the white flag of defeat” in the face of the virus.

Biden’s team argues that the coronavirus will likely wipe out any other problems that could arise in the last few days of the campaign – including Biden’s recent comment during the debate stage, in which he confirmed that he would move away from oil and later as transition went back of federal grants.
That strategy seemed to be paying off when the outbreak on Pence’s staff refocused the national conversation on the pandemic.
Trump and his team have since struggled to agree on a closing message, and the undisciplined candidate is increasingly trusting his guts with his advisors.
He has reached out to grime for his Democratic rival and used apocalyptic terms to describe a Biden presidency, but Biden has so far proven more resilient to such attacks than Trump’s 2016 rival.
“It is safe to expect that (Biden) will focus on Covid as it unfortunately continues to increase across the country,” said Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s assistant campaign manager, in an interview.
“The thing is that it disrupts people’s lives and people are looking for a guide who will make plans to get it under control.”
With more than a third of the expected ballots already cast in the elections, it may become increasingly difficult for Trump and Biden to recreate the contours of the race.
Biden leads Trump in most national polls and has an advantage, albeit closer, in many key battlefields.
