Trump to press U.S. border 'crisis' in televised address

  • Pelosi offers chilling impression of Trump

"Tuesday night at 9 p.m.", the President tweeted.

The federal government partially shut down on December 22 when Senate Democrats refused to support a House-passed bill that set aside $5.7 billion for security on the U.S. -Mexico border. Democrats are refusing to pay for it, noting that he repeatedly promised that Mexico would foot the bill for it. On Monday the White House requested air time for the speech, as is customary in the relationship between a president and the press.

Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is once again floating a solution that would trade support for Dreamers in exchange for border wall funding.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called it "an action necessary to make sure working families received their tax refunds on schedule".

The IRS may recall a large number of furloughed employees to process returns - probably without pay - in accordance with its contingency plans.

Democratic leaders in the House and Senate released a joint statement saying the speech would be misleading and demanding airtime to counter Mr Trump's arguments.

Vought says the administration is changing the customary rules "from past administrations".

Trump, a former NY businessman, said he could relate to the workers who would have trouble paying bills because of the shutdown and threatened, again, to declare a national emergency as an alternative way to build the wall, depending on the outcome of talks in the coming days.

The object is composed of two distinct lobes in contact with each other, with a 3-1 ratio in terms of their respective size. It is also a bilobate or compact binary object, meaning that it is composed of two separate objects that are now joined.

"Wall plus DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) plus TPS (Temporary Protected Status) makes sense", he continued.

Pressure to reach a deal to end the shutdown is likely to grow as its effects are increasingly felt, including possible cuts in food stamp programs for the poor.

He said that he and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen would be at the Capitol on Tuesday and Wednesday to brief lawmakers. Democrats said Trump will face legal challenges if doing so. Democrats are dead set against it. House Democrats, fresh of their 40-seat gain in the lower chamber from the 2018 midterms, are taking their new majority for a spin and aren't willing to give the president one cent for the wall.

Many Trump critics posted messages on social media urging the networks not to air an address that could be filled with falsehoods. But this is Trump's first time using the setting for an address to the nation.

"I am pleased to inform you that I will address the nation on the humanitarian and national security crisis on our southern border".

U.S. President Donald Trump has been considering declaring a possible national emergency to acquire the money for building his pledged wall on the U.S. -Mexico border, Vice President Mike Pence said Monday.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders announced the border trip on Twitter without providing details.
