i'm married to evanston and welcome to the program u.s. president donald trump has tweeted for the 1st time since he was hospitalized with covert 19 he said he was feeling well and thanked the staff at walter reed medical center his tweet came shortly after the doctor treating president trump gave an upbeat assessment of his patients progress white house physician dr sean conley said trump symptoms were improving but he also warned that the critical phase of a covert $1000.00 infection would come in a few days. as reported yesterday consultation with this group are recommended we bring the president up to walter reed the precautionary measure measure. to provide state of the art monitoring and any care that he may need just 72 hours
10:02 pm
into the diagnosis now the 1st week a coded in a particular days and times of the most critical in determining the likely course of this illness. at this time the team and i are extremely happy with the progress the president has made. there is a he had a mild cough and some nasal congestion fatigue all of which are now resolving the all right for more on all this when joined now by our correspondent in washington stefan themas hello to you stefan so trumps a physician there painting a rather rosy picture of trump's condition but his statement was rather thin on details what did you make of it. yeah right it was thin on details and guess what it actually had holes there is a problem with the statement on 1st sight it looked very very good and everything is hunky dory the president is in good care and there is no problem and there
10:03 pm
hopefully won't be any problem now he says 72 hours into the diagnosis that's a problem he is messing up dr sean carley is messing up the timeline it does not add up when was the president found covert 900 positive and how long was the negative was it 72 hours ago that means that the diagnosis he's been over 1000 positive was on wednesday on thursday still on thursday the president went to new jersey to a donor event and a full kraut no mess no social distancing only on thursday night into friday morning we learned that he is covert 19 positive so something is not right there and this statement i'm sorry leaves more questions still then it gives answers well stefan there are some more contradictions now that there are some other reports we're hearing saying that president trance condition is actually concerning what
10:04 pm
can you tell us about those reports. now you see this is the same this is white house communication and their effort to get information and it is a mess so we have 'd this statement at this press conference from the doctors from the team of doctors take care of the president and then minutes later a source approaching the pool reporters those reporters who are on the site at medical at the walter reed medical center because you cannot put hundreds of other reporters in this in those quarters there they are approached by a source who doesn't want to be named but who has intimate knowledge about where the president is in terms of his health is there and he rings the alarm bells with the statement saying basically that the last 24 hours they were really really concerned that he is definitely not out of the woods and that's why he is at medical rule to read medical center and not as a precautionary measure as the doctors just say bottom line is this white house has
10:05 pm
a trust problem and an information problem meaning it is not transparent nobody believes the white house and as reporters and press here everybody is disappointed about this lack of transparency in this situation to fund do stay with us for just a moment we 1st like to have a look at how news of president trump corona virus infection 1st emerged and the treatment he's been receiving and then we'll talk some more. the 1st glimpse of the u.s. president since he shocked the world with his covert 19 diagnosis. here donald trump is being transferred to a hospital with officials insisting it's only a precautionary measure. the white house said he was fatigued but in good spirits and experiencing mild symptoms. before takeoff the president assured his supporters he was doing ok. i want to thank everybody for the tremendous record.
10:06 pm
you want to read i think i know very very well. maybe you were the. first lady is doing. so we're very much very appreciated. thank you. the white house had been on high alert after news that a top aide was diagnosed with the virus on thursday. politics seen here in the brown coat often travels with president trump now the race is on to trace and test the people who might have come into contact with the president and the potential pool of people is huge several other people close to trump of now tested positive for corona virus and that number could grow even further. form a senior adviser to the president kellyanne conway seen here talking to u.s. attorney general bill barr was at an event at the white house rose garden a week ago she has since tested positive for the virus and so 2 republican senator

10:08 pm
been infected. you know he stayed away from this because this is of course highly political it's it's problematic it's political and this man is a doctor he's trusted with the care of the president he's not going to go anywhere near saying where this is where the president was impacted or infected by covert 900 for him for his purpose and for what he's doing now it doesn't really matter what it was that's important for us that's important for the american public but it looks like it was this super spread event at the rose garden in the white house they were not only sitting in the there were also a lot of handshaking and hugging and celebrating inside the white house as the president nominated and announce his pick for his supreme court seat and he currently parents want to say one more thing just now and that was referring to the statement of the doctor. a few national outlets here national media and now reporting that a source in the white house is telling now that the president actually received

what is home and what makes a home home germany's been reunified for 30 years we mark the anniversary by exploring the german concept of heimat home. norcross has lived in the us for almost 20 years she's an illustrator and writer and a professor at a new york art school. we met in berlin at the plate since the memorial center for victims of the nazis. to her to be german has always been to feel a sense of guilt and awareness of things and sit in the future like many germans and i grew up knowing that members of my family had been soldiers but you weren't allowed to mourn to acknowledge loss it was only when i read letters written by the

a way they're the ones who make us most uncomfortable because they're the ones we most identify with. nora kruger takes over readers on a journey into her family's past starting with her own experience of facing hostility as a juman. and the shame she felt the 1st time she met a holocaust survivor in new york she put on an accent to cover up her german. and the growing she felt to investigate her own family's role in the war. whenever she visited germany she would troll through flea markets on the hunt for clues to the past photographs postcards documents anything that gave her insight into the nazi era and help to understand what it means to be chairman today. it's been i grew up with german culture and i was raised in germany i grew up
10:34 pm
speaking german and of course that gave me a very deeply rooted understanding of what home. even though i live in the u.s. and these days i'm more at home there than i am in germany when i visit germany i would never refer to the u.s. as home. america even though it's where most of my friends are. because to me home is closely tied to my childhood home of. the place that defined you at an early age on the money. to me that's an important part of the concept of home tired of homework because it's. not talked to her family and collected everything she could find. and from letters to school exercise book that once belonged to her uncle to her horror one of his essays was titled the jew as a poisonous mushroom testaments to the nazis racist ideology and how it infiltrated the classroom. she collected everything she found in a sort of scrap book juxtaposing the stories she heard and the documents she found
10:35 pm
with her own illustrations inspired by family lore such as the moment her father's family was informed of the death of the firstborn son franz carl was 18 when he was shot in italy describes a conversation with her father's cousin how memories came pouring out of her like ice melting. home as she discovered is not necessarily something positive it's a concept in extra to be tied up with the responsibility that we all have as inheritors of our country's pasts. there because. the term. home changes as society changes and in the course of time everybody should be able to decide for themselves what it means. that was the reason why the book was called heimat in germany before it's a loving attempt to reach out to germany but at the same time it's

a commitment to keep examining the past and commitments also. says nora croke means carrying the burden of history but it's also a longing for songs landscapes the bits and pieces of a life it's both terrifying and wonderful. they're still warner original section of the girl and while remaining knew it personally from the days of screaming border guard i was 18 at the time and had pledged an oath to defend my communist homeland. but after a few months i refused to perform armed service was demoted and experienced the fall of the wall locked up in the barracks i hated to walk yet i also hated the frenzy that followed being shoved from one contrived homeland to another being essentially the next was something i considered wrong and dangerous and jet even
10:37 pm
after 30 years a very unified germany i'm thrilled that a piece of the wall is still standing. a friend of mine urban archaeologist stoppel concer often to tell terse about it. as from mine says there's some bible sense that this is a bit of a special place i think that's true though it has a kind of aura folks come here and feel like they're intruding on something and just like now they ask where can i see the wall and i tell them this is the real war and they're like ah ok people are always seeking authenticity and then comes where is based in where is west because no one can really notice or imagine that anymore and the kind of as a man one question. is what is it about the wall that interests. of this interest i'm interested in urban history. and in everything that also has an impact on society and there's nothing more blatant than a physical barrier that divides
10:38 pm
a society. these days people no longer talk about reunification healing the scars of the vision it didn't take long for disillusionment to set in former east germans were to take part in the free market but not have a shared just 5 percent of east germany state on property sold off by the tri hand agency went to east germans at the same time east germany was officially branded as an illegitimate state a dictatorship robbing people of the former home. being robbed of your. land is such a loaded concept. that you know i see it more as an egg ation of your experiences your memories of your past. that deprives you of your existential need to find your place in the world maybe that
10:39 pm
something connected with homeland being robbed of your very existence. with parents but. then 16 years later germany was awash in flux in the east and west north and south the world cup truly united the country which was caught up in football fever. yeah that was cool really ok yeah 2000 and see if you will have germany flags of their cars. yeah i went to university with a germany flag painted on my face but then i also went there sporting the turkish flag value and my professor from the xylo and came to me so even with anger you can't be for germany one day in turkey the next you have to choose one thing you can't be for one sometimes and then for the other and when i said sure you can he got all huffy and that's what i mean with love for your homeland it's possible and it's enriching it's not a burden to love more than one homeland and it's not just about nationality it's
10:40 pm
also about specific things. the. flags have never made me feel patriotic to me homeland has more to do with the landscape in which i find peace the aroma of pumpkin soup cooking and fire pits of the yard the sound of folk songs the many things i love about my home none are political why germany needs a home ministry remains unclear to me this is how my homeland ministry isn't a nice way of uniting us so i mean and this unity thing german unity i think this word has to go i mean. does the. most basic. why do we how do. it's not single entity i'd rather we have affectionate german affection. perhaps the wall is a good projection screen for that a symbol of the possibility for change the way of encouraging people to define themselves what they call home or smacked him or not but i still like the war like
10:41 pm
the walter mears for me it's a symbol of something positive. yes namely that nothing stays the way you think it will be nothing lasts forever and fundamental skepticism over everything is always judicious. that's a super statement really yeah. disrespect the wall is a real piece of home to me taught me to doubt things but to overcome them including contrived ideas about my homeland. at the n.s.c. trial in munich in 2018 to be out of shape was convicted for her involvement in 10 murders for over 5 years the terror group known as the national socialist underground went on a murder spree targeting immigrants older men children had lived in germany fields yet their new home betrayed them. the trial is
