Presidential elections are always momentous occasions in American history, but this election could be unlike any we’ve ever seen.

Racial justice protests, battles over election integrity and a global pandemic loom over the election — and, in the last 2 weeks, the president, and several people close to him, tested positive for the coronavirus.

This segment aired on October 12, 2020.
