Anderson Cooper brings you highlights from CNN's premier nightly news program AC360.

    Stimulus deal negotiations continue with Election Day two weeks away

    Stimulus deal negotiations continue with Election Day two weeks away

    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.”

    Pres. Trump: “People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots”

    Pres. Trump: “People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots”

    Pres. Trump is attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top infectious disease expert and White House Task Force Member, as the U.S. coronavirus death toll tops 220,000 and hospitalizations increasing more than 5% in 42 states. Trump claims “people are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots” and that Dr. Fauci is a “disaster.” Dr. Frieden is a former CDC Director. He joins AC360 to react to the President’s comments and says it’s not about agreeing or disagreeing with someone, it’s about whether you follow policies that’ll protect people. Plus, Election Day is just 15 days away and former President Obama is getting ready to hit the campaign trail for his friend Vice President Joe Biden. Valerie Jarrett is a former Senior Adviser to President Obama and she tells Anderson Cooper that President Obama is laser focused on making an affirmative case for why Joe Biden is the best person to become the President of the United States.

    Rudy Giuliani’s daughter: Vote for Biden and Harris to “end the nightmare”

    Rudy Giuliani’s daughter: Vote for Biden and Harris to “end the nightmare”

    Caroline Giuliani, the daughter of President Trump’s personal attorney and former New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani, is urging voters to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris to end Trump’s “reign of terror.” Caroline Giuliani wrote in Vanity Fair “I may not be able to change my father's mind, but together, we can vote this toxic administration out of office.” She tells Anderson Cooper she thinks our country has been “in crisis for four years, if not more.” Plus, President Trump says the “light at the end of the tunnel is near” despite the Director of the National Institutes of Health saying Covid-19 deaths are likely to rise as hospitalizations jump. An influential model projects 389,000 deaths by February 1 with 2,200 people dying per day in January because of the winter surge. Dr. Chris Murray is the director of the group at the University of Washington that’s been working on these models throughout the pandemic. He joins AC360 to explain why we aren’t “rounding the turn” like Trump claims and says “the worst is still to come.”

    Chris Christie: “I was wrong to not wear a mask” at the White House

    Chris Christie: “I was wrong to not wear a mask” at the White House

    Chris Christie spent seven days in the ICU after testing positive for Covid-19. Christie helped President Trump prepare for the first 2020 Presidential debate and says he was “wrong to not wear a mask” and urged people to take the virus “very seriously.” Meanwhile, President Trump is falsely claiming the CDC says 85 percent of people wearing masks “catch” the virus. New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman tells Anderson Cooper that President Trump is a small man in a big time. Plus, more than 17 million people have already voted with Election Day still 19 days away. There have been hours-long lines in several states, voter registration glitches in Virginia and disputes over mail-in-voting drop-boxes in Texas and California. Jena Griswold is the Colorado Secretary of State where since 2013 every registered voter is mailed a ballot that they can either put back in the mail or place in a designated drop-box. She joins AC360 to discuss her concerns about what’s going on in other states and says “despite the roadblocks that are being put up, Americans are showing up in record numbers” and it’s a “great thing for our democracy.”

    William Haseltine: “Herd immunity is another word for mass murder”

    William Haseltine: “Herd immunity is another word for mass murder”

    In an open letter signed by 80 scientists from around the world, they claim the idea of herd immunity is a “dangerous idea” that could lead to unnecessary deaths and economic turmoil while President Trump continues to hold large rallies with little mask-wearing and no social distancing. William Haseltine, Chair and President of ACCESS Health International, said he is “extremely concerned that the President is being advised by people who speak of herd immunity” and said it is “another word for mass murder.” Dr. Richard Besser is the former Acting Director of the CDC. He tells Anderson Cooper if “people all were to wear masks, we’d have a lot more economic activity than we currently have.” Plus, according to the Washington Post, a Trump-hyped investigation into whether Obama-era officials improperly requested names redacted in U.S. intelligence documents or “unmasking” has concluded without any charges. John Brennan and James Clapper both worked for the Obama administration, Brennan as CIA Director and Clapper as the Director of National Intelligence. They join AC360 to react to the conclusion of the investigation and Brennan says it was clearly a “politically motivated probe.”

    Democrats grill Judge Amy Coney Barrett on abortion, health care and the election

    Democrats grill Judge Amy Coney Barrett on abortion, health care and the election

    For a second day, Judge Amy Coney Barrett took questions from Senate Judiciary Committee members on Capitol Hill on topics ranging from the Affordable Care Act to Roe v. Wade and legalization of same-sex marriage. Judge Barrett declined to give answers on how she would rule on those matters after repeated questions from Democrats. Senator Amy Klobuchar was one of those Democrats questioning Judge Barrett. She tells Anderson Cooper Judge Barrett’s record is the polar opposite of what Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for her whole life. Plus, New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo has seen the extreme rise and fall of Covid-19 cases in his state. New York was the first epicenter of the virus where more than 33,000 people have died. Governor Cuomo joins AC360 to discuss the status of the recent flare ups in New York City and reacts to President Trump’s mask-less campaign rallies.
