WASHINGTON: The Latest on the 2020 presidential election (all times local):

9 a.m.

Michelle Obama is going after President Donald Trump in a scathing new video that accuses him of willful mismanagement of the coronavirus crisis and of racism. She calls on Black and all young voters not to waste their votes.

In the video, released Tuesday by Joe Bidens campaign, Mrs. Obama notes that more Americans have died from COVID-19 than died in the Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam and Korean wars combined. She charges that with respect to the virus, our commander in chief, sadly, has been missing in action.

Mrs. Obama accuses Trump of being racist when he and other Republicans are lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, which she says is meant to distract from his breathtaking failures.

She also calls on undecided voters to think about all those folks like me and my ancestors and have some empathy for what its like to walk around your own country scared that someones unjustified fear of you could put you in harms way.

And to Black and brown voters, and all young voters, who are considering sitting out the election, Mrs. Obama urges them to make a plan to vote, because we dont have the luxury to assume that things are going to turn out okay.
