President Trump’s re-election campaign on Monday announced a $55 million advertising blitz for the final two weeks of the race in a string of battleground states, as the president spent the day unleashing attacks against Joseph R. Biden Jr., Dr. Anthony S. Fauci and the news media.

Mr. Trump also dismissed concerns about the continuing coronavirus pandemic, saying people were “tired of Covid” and news coverage about it. But his barrage intensified on Monday on a wide range of topics, as all public polls show him running behind Mr. Biden, the Democratic nominee.

The competing activities by the president and his team were a microcosm of the campaign that Mr. Trump has waged this year. Once more, his slash-and-burn commentary blocked out the sun and swamped most news coverage, even as his advisers used conventional levers to try to pull him across the finish line on Election Day.
