The day after impeachment
US President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representative Wednesday. Trump's tenure has marked a big shift toward nationalism, a trend that's growing worldwide, like in Great Britain, where Queen Elizabeth delivered a speech Thursday on behalf of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government to mark the re-opening of Parliament. But Washington, DC, wasn't in total disharmony, despite the impeachment vote. The House is expected to pass the new NAFTA, called the USMCA, with strong bipartisan support. And, the eastern German city of Dresden has declared a "Nazi emergency." The World's Orla Berry reports from Dresden about the city's growing problem with the far right.
