"Is weekend edition from NPR news I'm Renee montagne with just months to go before he stands for re election president trump is trying to manage a major national crisis and his own political future here's part of the message he sent at a White House press conference yesterday the choice we make the precautions we put into place are critical to overcoming the virus reducing it spread and shortening the duration of the pandemic which is what it is meanwhile his democratic rivals are trying to send their own messages to both help the public and their campaigns in pure political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben has been following this and joins us now good morning good morning the president is working to marshal resources both for the government and the private sector but you know often of course presidents are most influential as messengers what do some of the experts you been talking to say is really helpful in a crisis like this well first things first they say that a crisis like this I mean that the the crises like this are rare this crisis is unique Mike Leavitt who was a health and Human Services secretary under president George W. bush he pointed out to me that this isn't like a hurricane or a tornado where there's a discrete localized impact that's for a lot of people it's a sort of rolling potential disaster and people are for an extended period of time continually trying to avoid it these are complicated Ricky merchant ships different than our weather event a tornado or hurricane different chairs in the sense that they happen everywhere at the same time so with this happening everywhere to all Americans at the same time I mean the most fundamental thing is to communicate truthful information now C. N. N. this week counted literally dozens of falsehoods about corona virus that trump and his administration had spread and that was before by the way his Wednesday night oval office address in which he seemed to get his own policy is wrong yeah right in people I think have a sense of no control and they really are looking for somebody in in control in a situation like this a keeping people from panicking ten they'll be very hard even for president how does he manage that well so one way is keeping experts close at hand sort of showing that you have smart people around you tell you what to do I asked a scientist and epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins her name was Emily girly about this and she pointed out you know it's not just showing the people that you're getting good information but also that listen I have people telling me when I need to change course if we need to change course and with that we can do that quickly and the president was putting Anthony Fauci and other experts out front in an effort to do that now it is also true though that if there's a disconnect between what the president says and what experts suggest that could add anxiety because of mixed messages for example he announced that travel the travel restrictions regarding Europe and some experts have said that that just isn't useful and of course the democratic candidates have not shied away from criticizing trump's response is here what has stood out for you from Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders one thing is a first of all they both gave speeches this week actually Sanders gave too and the big thing is you know they didn't really criticize each other in those speeches they both seem to have backed off of viewing each other as rivals here set and of course they don't want to be seen as taking political advantage now that said they are definitely criticizing Donald trump's governing style Joe Biden this week called it a failure on testing that is colossal and he also called a failure of planning leadership and execution now Sanders also has said this administration is quote largely incompetent now however they are taking a little bit of advantage Sanders is taking the opportunity to to promote Medicare for all right now Biden is pivoting to the general election really they're just trying to show that they could be presidents during a crisis NPR political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben thanks for joining us yes thank you and tomorrow on weekend edition a closer look at the risk coronavirus poses to our economic health Lulu Garcia Navarro talks with a veteran of the last economic shock about what's different this time around listen to that conversation tomorrow morning by asking your smart speaker to play NPR member station my name.

S. NPR science correspondent Richard Harris is with us welcome good morning Rene thank you so growing numbers of cases of this corona virus around the world that's we know not many deaths especially when you compare it to the annual flu but bring us up to date on the latest right there now something like ten thousand reported cases and every time you turn around that number grows up Moster in China but the disease has popped up sporadically in more than a dozen countries now the United States we have seven reported cases as a result of all these developments both the World Health Organization and now the US government have declared these public health emergencies so what exactly does that mean well first and foremost the US government is adding a significant travel restriction for people attempting to return from China health and Human Services secretary Alex ETS are announced those restrictions at a White House briefing yesterday any US citizen returning to the United States who has been in who bay province in the previous fourteen days will be subject to up to fourteen days of mandatory quarantine Americans are permanent residents and their immediate families who are returning from other parts of China will be screen carefully it one of seven airports and monitored closely for fourteen days and most of the travel of non Americans coming from trying to will be just band also in you remember those hundred and ninety five people who were turned on a charter flight from Wuhan earlier this week well they are now in official quarantine in a military base in riverside county California and corn can is a big word it sounds like an extreme stop how often does the government impose that well the federal government hasn't and post a quarantine for like fifty years that was back in the days when they were trying to put in into small pox local health officials have the power to quarantine and they have used it on a small scale but this is a big step for the federal government should mention that other nations including France and the UK and Australia have been quarantine their citizens returning from these coronavirus hotspots okay but why use quarantines when we've had just seven cases so far in the United States and public health officials keep telling us that the general public is not at risk this is the really only chance we have to nip this epidemic in the bud it once it gets a foothold outside of China there's really no telling how big it will become so thus far it seems to be much less deadly than other nasty viruses like sars and a bowl of but you know it does spread through the air and we already get enough grief from the annual flu which typically kills tens of thousands of Americans every year nobody wants a second disease like that to take hold up and so you just said that that this virus spreads through the air but how easy is that to do I mean what a health officials say about how vulnerable people are the short answer is they say we don't know enough with sars noble those viruses don't spread unless the person who has them is actually showing symptoms and you know that made it easier to identify people at risk for spreading the virus Dr Anthony Fauci at the national institutes of health said we are just now learning about the situation for the new corona virus it was not clear whether in a symptomatic person could transmit it to someone while they wait a symptomatic now we know from a recent report from Germany that that is absolutely the case so that potentially makes it a lot harder to bottle up but she also said the tests the CDC has developed to diagnose people with this disease isn't a hundred percent effective were reliable so that's another factor that led health officials to push for more aggressive measures such as this quarantine and it Richard you have any idea of how long these measures will be in effect no why don't they say it's temporary but it looks like the situation is likely to get worse before it gets that's NPR science correspondent Richard Harris thanks very much anytime late last night thousands of people poured into parliament square in London to count down to breakfast after decades of economic integration with Europe the UK is on its own sort of for more to explain what comes next we turn to in pairs Franklin fit in London good morning Hey good morning Rene and describe for us the celebration last night we had a bit of it what did you see well there is there were thousands of people in parliament square people wearing union Jack flags is capes there were fireworks lots of smoke in a totally different kind of seen in other parts of the city where a lot of people wanted to remain in the U. there's candlelight vigils it felt almost funereal and then up in Scotland something very different and and a sense of what could be on the rise and Nicholas sturgeon she's the head of the Scottish National Party she's pushing for second referendum for Scotland independence she wants to secede from the United Kingdom and rejoined the European Union and and frankly the most interesting image last night for me Rene was in Brussels it was at the E. U. commission building and they had an image of Europe and Scotland those two words intersecting and the message seemed to be come back to Europe Scotland okay well the UK has been out of the E. U. for a few hours now and what is changed not much basically they've gone into an eleven month transition period so free trade and free movement will be the way it has always been what they now have is a very short window to work out a new free trade deal by the end of this year and then there's the risk if they can't I certainly hope this doesn't happen the U. K. could still crash out of you with no deal little well British politics have been chaotic over this past three years I mean dramatically so what kind of tone is prime minister Boris Johnson striking now that the country's looking forward well I think but Johnson wants to try to turn the page we unify the country and and kind of confuse Britain with a sense of optimism which has been totally lacking as you're pointing out and he gave a tape speech last night and this is a little of of what he said it is potentially a moment of real National Review and change this is the dawn of a new era in which we no longer accept that your old life chances your family's life choices should depend on which part of the country you grow up that's what the key points here is what Boris Johnson is focusing on Renee is really the domestic situation the economy and the argument is making is what when were free from the European Union we can build a better economy a fairer economy for other parts of England for instance that our post industrial that have been doing very well the one working never mentioned was the word brexit because it's totally toxic so wondering do many people in the UK share the prime minister's optimist I mean so brought to tears do most economists absolutely don't they think this is going to be bad certainly in the short term and and probably even from their perspective in the long term for the UK economy and also many young people are very disappointed they're not gonna be able to live and work free Lee in Europe which okay great opportunities for as a woman named Charlotte Reynolds university student here she studies French Spanish and German and last night she struck a totally different tone from the prime minister we just pass also the was whatever that may be it I guess because everything's on the at the moment it has been for the past three years so it's just gonna be more difficult and more stressful to kind of get around and be free in Europe has to have a full and.

that decision away from the American people after sitting silently for more than a week senators then got to ask questions in writing to be read aloud by Chief Justice John Roberts as a matter of law does it matter if there was a quid pro quo is it true that quid pro quos are often used in foreign policy yesterday senators wrangled over the question of calling new witnesses in introducing new documents Democrats argued in favor is this a fair trial without the ability to call witnesses and produce documents the answer is clearly and unequivocally no trumps team only used a sliver of their time to push back I could stand here for a long time I'm not gonna do that I'm just gonna say this they created the record do not allow them to penalize the country and the constitution because it they failed to do their job in the end senators ultimately voted against the measure the gays are forty nine the nays are fifty one the motion is not agreed to later Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the final vote on impeachment will be held next Wednesday and your senior Washington editor and correspondent Ron Elving is with us now good morning Ron good morning Rene and the new normal you must've been up most much of the night it wasn't that bad the Senate finished at about eight o'clock a lately this week we would call that bankers hours yeah that's right it's a big week it coming up Iowa caucuses on Monday state of the union address on Tuesday and then the vote on the articles of impeachment on Wednesday so let's start at the end with the impeachment vote where did the things stand now the Senate is taking the weekend off and the rest of the country is too I believe there's a football game of some kind on Sunday pretty big one looking forward to that then the trial resumes on Monday for four hours of closing arguments after which and this is really what changed last night individual senators may make speeches explaining themselves explaining their thinking and their votes of those speeches will happen on Monday and Tuesday and up until four o'clock on Wednesday when all debate will end and the final vote will happen now those features are not really part of the trial per se they're just senators getting a chance to express themselves after having sat quietly for a couple of weeks and at that time that final vote will require not just a simple majority but a two thirds majority in other words sixty seven votes which would require twenty Republicans to cross the aisle so no one expects that to happen well let's talk about that fifty one to forty nine vote yesterday against the Democrats request to call in additional witnesses and bring in documents you know why couldn't they get more Republicans to cross the aisle there was a great deal of pressure brought to bear both from the leadership and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell runs a very tight ship and from the White House obviously the president's team didn't want John Bolton for example the former national security adviser whose book manuscript has been so much in the news this week to be testifying in this trial testifying on TV it was too much of a potential game changer and the prospect of additional witnesses at all meant the trial would last well into February so it was close on the issue of witnesses because remember that needed only a simple majority not two thirds fifty one votes meant the Republicans only had three votes to spare they did lose to Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah two other Republicans who could have turned the tide turned the other way instead and opposed hearing from witnesses they were Lamar Alexander of Tennessee and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and which of those two have to say about that quite different explanations really Murkowski said she was just very disappointed with the whole process she thought it'd been way too partisan from the start and you just wanted it to end Alexander in this is quite interesting Lamar Alexander's retiring after this year is not running again so many thought he would feel like a free agent in the end he said he didn't need to hear more witnesses because he was convinced the president did the things he's being accused of he just didn't think those things are serious enough to warrant his removal from office so guilty of something but not guilty of something grave enough for the ultimate punishment well the state of the union address Tuesday night a White House official said the final vote on the articles of impeachment won't interfere with that address but will the address interfere with the vote at all it's hard to imagine it would there do not seem to be a lot of minds that are not made up and look the White House is this is going to be a another state of the union the style the previous ones that have been delivered by president trump and those have been distinguished by how little there like the usual speeches by president trump in this high ceremonial setting he has stuck to the presidential tone and to the teleprompter script and if I could just recall for a moment this is going to be deja vu moment in a way because president Bill Clinton in the midst of his impeachment trial back in nineteen ninety nine gave a state of the union speech and never mentioned the fact that he was being tried on impeachment charges in the Senate at the same time so do we expect from our this president to mention that we don't know and it's possible that he will it would certainly be characteristic of him to tear into some of his critics but on the other hand in the past and in the indications that we've been getting lately from the White House he's not he's not planning on that and they are apparently trying to talk him out of it if he is thinking about doing it okay the Iowa caucuses waiting for months and months for them to finally happen the candidates are probably at Penn cake practices as we speak absolutely you know those pancakes are among the tests that we impose on our perspective president it's not in the constitution but the it does happen these senators although at this point that I think would have to say they were sincerely grateful to be eating pancakes in Iowa just to be out of Washington talking to Iowans again and not sitting in the Senate chamber listening to more hours of presentations from lawyers that is NPR's Ron Elving thanks very much thank you Rene and a.

S. regardless of citizenship status and his account required by the constitution in order to determine how many seats in Congress each they get okay and in the face of so far the rejection of this question president trump has floated an idea of an addendum with a citizenship question added to the paper census forms that are already being printed is that possible it's unclear this is a possibility that is very likely to disrupt very detailed planning for the twenty twenty head count and I was looking at the they have there's the operational plan that goes into a very very specific details about exactly what's gonna happen for the twenty twenty census and I found it a small detail that shows exactly how the forms the actual paper forms need to be stapled and also goes into detail how they should be processed so to add an addendum at this point could have big implications for very big job one point five billion materials have to be printed for the twenty twenty senses that includes a hundred thirty seven million forms most of them are eight pages long others are sixteen pages long and that's not even mentioning the hundreds of millions of letters and postcards and I will have to be printed well in the briefest away you can tell us what's next you one thing I'm looking for is there are existing government records on citizenship that been compiled by the census bureau it appears as if the president really wants acrid scent citizens of information this is where he should get it from the more accurate than any responses to our question but there is a waiting to figure out what you should do with that it's ready to release this information it just needs approval from the ministration NPR's Hansi low Wong thanks much welcome in Hong Kong police are hunting for suspects they say disrupted the twenty second anniversary of the city's handover from Britain to China demonstrators stormed and vandalize the Legislative Council along Hong Kong's harbor Monday night in here's Julie McCarthy spoke with several of them about what happened these are perilous times for some demonstrators who only agreed to come forward on the condition their identities remain confidential they are using names that authorities wouldn't recognize Katherine twenty six participated in the two thousand fourteen mass demonstrations known as the umbrella movement the demand was direct elections including for Hong Kong's chief executive now vetted by Beijing Catherine recalls two thousand fourteen as a festival like Cydia admired by the world for being peaceful to some of us this compliment is of no use because we couldn't get anything we want she says her thinking about what draws the government's attention has evolved if the government is not listening that you keep doing the same thing again in that game that's not useful today she says Hong Kong administration isn't listening to demands to totally withdraw it extradition bill it only suspended the measure could extradite suspects to mainland China were due process is not guaranteed the administration has also declined to release all protesters or retract the term rights or Catherine adds launch an independent inquiry of police into alleged excessive force when we come out to products the police are abusing also physically violently the government is on the policy side I was a day use police SO two it's a process the people the night protesters stormed the Legislative Council building Catherine waited anxiously outside in solidarity the demonstrators were pressing for the right to vote for all not just some of their legislators and Catherine says those who crossed the threshold did so to tell the government that if their representatives could occupy that building the what this is very dangerous and they're risking up to ten years freedom Alex a new I.

M. dot com this is weekend edition from NPR news I'm Renee montagne and on now to the week's news while many of you may have been enjoying your fourth of July I certainly was certain lawyers at the department of justice did not instead they were working trying to figure out how to get the citizenship question on the twenty twenty census in a way that would satisfy the Supreme Court and president trump plus in Iowa this week following her strong performance at the first democratic debate senator comma Harris did a little backtracking joining me now to talk about the week's news is in here senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving welcome good morning Rene first at that citizenship question in just a matter of days it's been on it's been off now the president says he wants it on again what what's going on there the Supreme Court said last month you could habit but only with good justification and the Supreme Court has ruled before that the census is supposed to count everyone and not just citizens as it has always then the president said yesterday he had four five ways that he could get this question back on but executive orders which were one of the ways he mentioned do not supersede court orders so the president is still going to have to have something that pleases the court and yesterday a federal judge in Maryland ordered further discovery in this case meeting people from commerce and the justice department are going to have to answer questions about this question where it came from and yesterday in court the lawyers for the administration admitted that at this point they don't know what to say the president has also been tweeting about another big story the conditions at the border patrol detention centers yesterday he said many of the migrants held there were and I'm quoting living far better now than they were where they came from and in safer conditions I mean that's not what a report from the department of homeland security's own office of inspector general said this week it it that report warned about dangerous overcrowding and prolonged detention without food or hygiene or laundry facilities very big difference that's right and in this informal conversations that the president had with reporters as he was leaving for his golf club he said that he had personally seen detention centers and that they were beautifully run of clean and so forth he may have seen some centers and he has been down to the region but he has not seen the ones that were described by that in turn that inspector general report that you mentioned and this looks like another case of the president essentially telling people to believe what he says and not the evidence of their own office well let's switch now to the the twenty twenty presidential race senator Kamilla Harris has been trying to keep her momentum going after she confronted vice president Joe Biden over his opposition back in the nineteen seventies to mandatory school busing but then just a couple of days ago she answered a question about her support for mandatory school busing and it sounded a lot like Biden's position the very one she criticized him for you know Renee this was the week Kamel Harris found out what happens when a candidate breaks out in a debate and gets in the face of the front runner you hit a bump in the polls but it comes with a lot of attention much of it critical and people take a longer look at your own positions on say passing and other issues as well and we also saw headlines about how she and her husband made their money we see folks on Twitter questioning racial origins which by the way caused her rival candidates to rally around in her defense including Joe Biden and what about your body and he's trying to recover ground lost in those debates he's been doing television interviews and trying to talk about his sort of multi part position on busing over the years and talk about his endorsements from African Americans who are local and state officials in key states it's very early the field is shifting and buying can ridership in time for the debates at the end of this month you'll still be the one the other candidates are coming after in the our senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving thanks for joining us thank you powerful yes compelling absolutely the US women's soccer team has captured headlines heart and stirred up controversy as they've played their way to the women's World Cup final the face the Netherlands in Leon tomorrow the pressure is really on Brian a scurry is someone who understands what that feels like she's a former goalie for the US team and she's with us to talk about it welcome thank you how are you I'm pretty good thank you you must be stuck like glue on this but you know we are here for you played in three world cups including one of the winds for the U. S. teams in a nineteen ninety nine how would you describe what it's like to be out there on that field in that final game it's exhilarating to be honest with you and it's really interesting for me to watch on TV because on the game days I feel similar to how he's to feel when I played just because I've really still feel a kinship in a connection to the current team even though it's been many years since I played but I feel we are all connected and inspired by with each other well what are your thoughts on this current team they are really having to deal with so many things off the pitch that normally a lot of teams wouldn't be able to deal with one there reigning champions of course the target is always going to be enormous on your back if you're reigning champion they had to play the host country France in the quarterfinals and you know we're able to fight against you know forty five thousand French fans and and still win the game they've had some controversy regarding their goal celebrations and whether they're celebrating too much or not enough it's been a lot of adversity off the pitch which it seems to me to have only fueled their fire on the pitch so it's actually come to be something of an advantage if you will because when you have outside forces sometimes crashing against you as a team it brings you closer to one another and a lot of times you feel like it's you against the world and I think that's really how they're playing right now one thing that has come up is that two other soccer tournaments are scheduled the same day as the women's World Cup final both our men's championships the Copa America and the CONCACAF gold Cup and one of the stars for the US women's team Megan Rapinoe has called this and I'm quoting ridiculous and disappointing and a distraction what is your take on that I couldn't be more in alignment with the ridiculousness of this when the men's World Cup is going on FIFA does not schedule anything other than the men's World Cup there's nothing else happening and the fact that these tournaments that are going on right now in the different areas of the world our chief of sanctioned tournaments and so there's some planning that went into putting two finals on the exact same date as the women's World Cup and it's almost a little bit of a slap in the face yeah and the idea is that you know thanks a lot.

"I'm Renee montagne people in southern California are on edge of this morning bracing for aftershocks from the most powerful earthquake in two decades it hit last night a magnitude seven point one quake centered near ridgecrest about a hundred miles north of Los Angeles that's the same location as Thursday six point four magnitude quake and there are reports of fires injuries and power outages in the area Jacob Margolis is with member station KPCC he is the host of the podcast the big one and he joins us now good morning thanks for having me please start off by telling us about last night's quake much much bigger than the earlier one yeah just to give people an idea on Thursday when I was running around I didn't even notice the six point four down here in Los Angeles they certainly did up in ridgecrest but down here in LA you might have missed it the seven point one I haven't talked to anyone who has I was sitting around with my wife when all the sudden everything in the house started swaying pots and pans started clanging and it just kept building and building and building and southern California especially when you have earthquakes it's this there's this waiting period you're waiting to see just how bad it's going to get so in terms of numbers the quake last night what a seven point one there is eleven point two times more energy released in the six point four that's pretty big and since then the after shocks have not stopped not that we're feeling them here in Los Angeles are not all of them but there's more than three hundred and fifty aftershocks above a magnitude two point five since the seven point one last night a been pretty much nonstop and just to make the point that earthquake when your time out Los Angeles it's a hundred miles south of that earthquake for all that shaking that you're feeling but you know this quake three is not related to what a lot of people know about earthquakes which is the San Andreas fault right that's theoretically the big one yeah well a big one can come from any number a false here in southern California so if you look at a map of southern California and wanted to imagine all the faults just throw pile spaghetti down on it and all those little strands would be false all over the place these lists set of false is inland from the San Andreas and so there was a less than one percent chance that we would have had an above seven point oh magnitude earthquake yesterday following the six point four on Thursday and that happened as of today there is a less than two percent chance that we could see another magnitude seven today but we're gonna have to see how that shakes out the San Andreas is not directly impacted by these false as far as we know but there are a whole lot of faults in that area that might have taken the strain of some of these the smaller faults that when they released all their energy because that string doesn't just go away it has to go somewhere else and some of the other faults in the area took it on and how how much do we know if this this moment in time this early in the day about what the damages up there you know we saw reports a as we're doing live coverage we saw reports of damage or to trickle in but really right after an earthquake it is like fog of war no one knows what's going on reemergence he responded you're just going out trying to survey the damage we did hear reports of fires we got some calls into our into KPCC people telling us that they had fallen one woman said that she thought maybe she broke her wrist and there were a lot of people who are just afraid to go back into their houses which is another big thing with big earthquakes is that it disrupts people's lives not just for that one moment but continuously especially after after shock after after shock after after shock keeps hitting all right will be getting updates throughout the morning and thanks very much for joining us KPCC is Jacob Margolis science reporter and host of a podcast called the big one your survival guide thank you Jacob thanks and on now to the week's news while many of you may have been enjoying your fourth of July I certainly was certain lawyers at the department of justice did not instead they were working trying to figure out how to get the citizenship question on the twenty twenty census in a way that would satisfy the Supreme Court and president trump plus in Iowa this week following her strong performance at the first democratic debate senator comma Harris did a little backtracking joining me now to talk about the week's news is in here senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving welcome good morning Rene first at that citizenship question in just a matter of days has been on it's been off now the president says he wants it on again what what's going on there the Supreme Court said last month you could have it but only with good justification and the Supreme Court has ruled before that the census is supposed to count everyone and not just citizens as it has always then the president said yesterday he had four five ways that he could get this question back on but executive orders which were one of the ways he mentioned do not supersede court orders so the president is still going to have to have something that pleases the court and yesterday a federal judge in Maryland ordered further discovery in this case meeting people from commerce and the justice department are going to have to answer questions about this question where it came from and yesterday in court the lawyers for the administration admitted that at this point they don't know what to say the president has also been tweeting about another big story the conditions at border patrol detention centers yesterday he said many of the migrants held there were and I'm quoting living far better now than they were where they came from and in safer conditions I mean that's not what a report from the department of homeland security's own office of inspector general sent this week it it that report warned about dangerous overcrowding and prolonged detention without proper food or hygiene or laundry facilities very big difference that's right in in this informal conversations that the president had with reporters as he was leaving for his golf club he said that he had personally seen detention centers and that they were beautifully run of clean and so forth he may have seen some centers and he has been down to the region but he has not seen the ones that were described by that in turn that inspector general report that you mentioned and this looks like another case of the president essentially telling people to believe what he says and not the evidence of their own eyes well let's switch now to the the twenty twenty presidential race senator Kamilla Harris has been trying to keep her momentum going after she confronted vice president Joe Biden over his opposition back in the nineteen seventies to mandatory school busing but then just a couple of days ago she answered a question about her support for mandatory school busing and it sounds a lot like Biden's position the very one should criticize him for you know Renee this was the week Kamel Harris found out what happens when a candidate breaks out in a debate and gets in the face of the front runner you hit a bump in the polls but it comes with a lot of attention much of a critical and people take a longer look at your own positions on say busing and other issues as well and we also saw headlines about how she and her husband made their money we see folks on Twitter questioning a racial origins which by the way caused her rival candidates to rally around in her defense including Joe Biden and what about your body and he's trying to recover ground lost in those debates he's been doing television interviews and trying to talk about his sort of multi part position on busing over the years and talk about his endorsements from African Americans who are local and state officials in key states it's very early the field is shifting and if I'm can ridership in time for the debates at the end of this month you'll still be the one the other candidates are coming after in the our senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving thanks for joining us thank you anchorage Alaska surrounded by glacier top mountains
