Joe Biden and Donald Trump traveled to some of the same battleground states this week at nearly the same time, but they campaigned as if they were running in different elections.

When Trump visited Kenosha, Wisconsin, a community consumed by racial turmoil, he met with law enforcement officials Tuesday but not with the family of Jacob Blake, the Black man who was shot in the back seven times by a white police officer. For Biden, a private meeting with Blake’s family — which included a 15-minute phone conversation with Blake himself in his hospital room — was the first order of business as soon as he touched down in the state Thursday.

When he traveled to western Pennsylvania on Thursday, Trump touted record stock market gains and claimed that Americans were “going to have an incredible economic year next year.” Three days previously, Biden was in the same part of the state addressing the tens of millions of Americans who have filed for bankruptcy in recent months.
