Major Networks Will Cover Schumer And Pelosi’s Rebuttal To Trump’s National Address

Trump ‘Would almost say definitely’ will declare emergency to fund border wall

As many as half a dozen GOP senators have said the government should reopen while border security negotiations with Democrats continue. "They've voted for border security".

"What we hear from Republican members and, frankly, quietly from many Democrat members is that when they see the scope of this crisis, when they see the facts presented to them, that they understand why the president is so adamant about doing something meaningful to advance border security".

When she said "no", Schumer says, Trump got up and said, "Then we have nothing to discuss". "The financial burden of this illegal immigration".

That news prompted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to demand equal air time to respond - something that is only done during State of the Union addresses from presidents.

Past meetings with Democrats have resulted in both sides digging in, with Trump insisting on almost $6 billion for a border wall and Democrats saying they won't entertain the discussion until Congress passes and Trump signs a package re-opening shuttered federal agencies.

President Trump made his first address to the nation from the Oval Office Tuesday night. Trump called the situation on the southern border as a "humanitarian crisis - a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul". But Democrats say the wall is "immoral" and refuse to compromise.

Trump stopped short of an emergency declaration in his televised speech but repeated his assertion that illegal immigrants and drugs flowing across the southern border are a serious threat to American safety. Instead, he is still demanding that American taxpayers pay at least $5.7 billion for his wall, which can't pass either chamber of Congress and of course Mexico is not paying for. I've held the hands of the weeping mothers and embraced the grief-stricken fathers. For weeks he has dug in on a signature campaign promise to his base voters, the pledge to build an impregnable "beautiful" wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Murkowski said she expressed her hope during the lunch that the partial government shutdown would end soon, even if an agreement hasn't been reached on border barrier spending.

He addressed the nation as the shutdown stretched through its third week, with hundreds of thousands of federal workers going without pay and some congressional Republicans growing increasingly jittery about the impasse. "At the request of Democrats it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall". "They can't watch every inch of the border, so that would help them take more control of the whole situation".

Seeking to keep up pressure on Trump and the Republicans, Pelosi said the House would begin passing individual bills this week to reopen some federal agencies, starting with the Treasury Department to ensure Americans receive their tax refunds.
