Former Secretary of State and retired four-star general Colin Powel endorsed Joe Biden for President during night two of the virtual Democratic National Convention. The Republican, who was the first African American Secretary of State, says Biden will bring together a country that is divided.

Powell's endorsement of Biden, who accepted the nomination last night, was swiftly panned by some fellow Republicans who think he should support President Trump's re-election. The endorsement was not a surprise by politicos who noted the Powell publicly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, also spoke during the Tuesday night event. You can watch her speech below.
