TOPSHOT - (COMBO) This combination of pictures created on October 22, 2020 shows US President Donald Trump (L) and Democratic Presidential candidate and former US Vice President Joe Biden during the final presidential debate at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 22, 2020.

Former President Trump's casual visit to a Chick-fil-A in Georgia, mingling with everyday Americans, contrasts sharply with President Biden's high-profile White House State Dinner attended by prominent figures, including the Clintons and tech moguls like Jeff Bezos and Tim Cook, as reported by Fox News.

While Trump engaged in unscripted conversations and treated locals to Chick-fil-A's offerings, Biden toasted with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida at the White House alongside notable political, business, and entertainment guests.

Interestingly, the gatherings organized by Trump and Biden showcase their distinct ways of engaging with the public and other influential figures. As the presidential election approaches, Trump's informal meetings with everyday people represent a grassroots style, opposite to Biden's formal events.

Why The Two Have Different Agendas Amid Upcoming Presidential Elections

Unfortunately for Joe Biden, Donald Trump's populist strategy was highly praised as people emphasized his connection with ordinary Americans through Chick-fil-A interactions. Meanwhile, Joe Biden's formal dinner with the elites was criticized for allegedly excluding Americans in important conversations.

However, it's worth noting that Joe Biden is still the President of the United States and, therefore, is required to hold meetings in the White House. 

It's uncertain whether the dinner was due to the upcoming elections, but the presence of the Clintons reaffirms the partnership between the two families. VCPost earlier reported that Hillary Clinton is raising funds for Biden's campaign through the broadway musical.

On the other hand, Donald Trump is seeking a more populist style, possibly driven by a need to compensate for shortcomings in fundraising efforts.

Both camps have yet to release a comment on this matter.
