Networks Will Air Democratic Response to Trump’s Primetime Address

But critics say the security risks are overblown and his administration is at least partly to blame for the humanitarian situation.

President Donald Trump ahead of his address to the nation is still considering the option of declaring a national emergency to fund a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview. 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. Eastern to the America public regarding his push for a southern border wall as a partial government shutdown drags into its third week. The networks said on Tuesday morning that they will carry the Democrats' response.

He said he could relate to the workers who would have trouble paying bills because of the shutdown but threatened, again, to declare a national emergency as an alternative way to build the wall.

Trump called on Democrats to return to the White House to meet with him, saying it was "immoral" for "politicians to do nothing". But he made no mention of such a declaration Tuesday night.

Experts say if the shutdown persists, Canadians entering the US will see an escalating impact at the northern border, where Customs and Border Protection officials are working without pay because their jobs are considered an essential service. Trump is refusing to accept any Congress proposal to fund the government that does not include the money he is demanding for the wall.

The Washington Post reported on Sunday about record numbers of families "streaming into the United States", but the story also raised questions about the effectiveness of a concrete wall or steel barrier in managing the inflow.

"The border wall would pay for itself".

"As part of an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested US$5.7 billion for a physical barrier", Trump said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said after the president's address that he had "chosen fear" in making the case to the American people for the border wall and Democrats "want to start with the facts".

Mr Trump tweeted today that the group discussed details of "border security" and had a "productive meeting".

Pelosi said on Tuesday night in the rebuttal that "we all agree that we need to secure our borders".

"The fact is: President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis, and must reopen the government".

Trump said on January 6 he's considering declaring a national emergency as the United States struggles to stop the aliens from entering the country without permission, noting that even his opponents admit he has the authority to do so. He's asked Congress for $5.6 billion.

The impasse between the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and the Republican president has forced Trump's hand to consider alternative funding, something a national emergency would provide through a military construction budget.

The government shutdown entered day 17 on 8 January after a series of discussions between the Trump administration officials and Democrats failed to yield an agreement on funding for the wall.
