The Wall

Stern: Artist Yadegar Asisi was pleased with the visit of the President’s family to see his panorama at Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin.

Heather Zichal, the White House coordinator for energy and climate change, said the president would announce the new policy initiatives in the coming weeks. Another official said a presidential address outlining the new policy could come as early as next week.
