With more than 156,000 Americans dead from the coronavirus, President Trump says the death toll “is what it is.” David Hart lost his husband, Dr. Joseph Costa, to the deadly virus. They were married for 28 years and Dr. Costa had been on the frontlines fighting Covid-19 before it took his life. Hart joins AC360 to share memories of his late husband and says he’s blessed for every second he was able to be with Joe. Plus, after weeks of attacking mail-in-voting, President Trump is now encouraging voters in Florida to vote by mail saying their election system is “safe and secure.” Just a day earlier, Trump threatened to sue Nevada after the state approved a plan to mail ballots to all registered voters. In a tweet, the President accused Nevada Democrats of orchestrating an “illegal late night coup” that makes it impossible for Republicans to win the swing state. Democratic Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak tells Anderson Cooper his priority is making sure voters “have every legitimate legal option to vote.”
