House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are in negotiations in hopes of reaching an agreement on a major relief package that could pass before Election Day. Meanwhile, Senate Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have continued to cast doubt that a pre-Election Day deal will be reached. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer joins AC360 to discuss the status of the negotiations and says Sen. Mitch McConnell is the problem and doesn’t want to get a deal done. Plus, the former head of U.S. Special Operations Command, retired Navy Adm. William McRaven who oversaw the bin Laden raid, revealed he voted for Joe Biden and said he “will be a much, much better leader than Donald Trump.” He joins other high profile Republicans and retired military leaders who have thrown their support behind the former Vice President. Chuck Hagel is a former Republican Senator and Defense Secretary under President Obama who has also endorsed Biden. He tells Anderson Cooper “Biden is a uniter. He’s not a divider. He understands that you got to bring the country together.”
