Donald Trump has attacked President Joe Biden's foreign policy, warning he will lead the US 'into WW3.'

Speaking at a rally of supporters in Racine, Wisconsin, the former President mocked videos of President Biden that had been dismissed by the White House as "cheapfakes."

It comes as the two men will go face to face in the first Presidential debate for CNN on June 27 in Atlanta.

Around 41 per cent of registered voters in a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll said they would vote for Trump if the election were held today, while 39 per cent picked Biden.

Trump told the rally: "Under crooked Joe Biden, the world is in flames, our border is overrun, inflation is raging...and the worst, most incompetent, most corrupt president in history is going to drag us into World War 3."

The 78-year-old former President focused on high inflation and mortgage rates, which have dented President Biden's popularity, including in swing states like Wisconsin.

Trump said: "Nobody can buy a house anymore. The American dream is dead. The interest rates are through the roof."

He also vowed to reverse a plan announced by President Biden that would give hundreds of thousands of people in the country illegally a pathway to citizenship, adding: "When I am re-elected, Joe Biden's amnesty plan will be ripped apart and thrown out."

Wisconsin is a key battleground for both Biden and Trump. The state had previously been a Democrat stronghold since the 1980s before Trump narrowly beat Hillary Clinton there in 2016. Biden retook the state by about 21,000 votes in 2020.

Earlier in his rally, Trump declared his affection for Wisconsin's biggest population hub, Milwaukee, just days after dismissing it as "a horrible city" ahead of the city hosting the Republican National Convention next month.

He said: "I love Milwaukee. I was the one that picked Milwaukee...These lying people that they say: ‘Oh, he doesn’t like Milwaukee.’ I love Milwaukee.

"I said, you gotta fix the crime. But I’m the one that picked Milwaukee, and the Democrats, or the radical-left lunatics, as I call them, what they say is just so terrible. They lie, lie, lie."

A RealClearPolitics survey earlier this week showed Biden recording a 39.3 per cent approval rating in Wisconsin, with a 55.7 per cent disapproval.

Racine County, where Trump made his speech is considered politically competitive even by Wisconsin standards.

Trump beat the Democratic nominee in both 2016 and 2020 by about four percentage points, while former Democratic President Barack Obama narrowly won the county in 2008 and 2012.
