Democrats Deliver Response to Trump's Prime Time Address

White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner left Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Vice President Mike Pence talk as they walk down the steps of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex Saturday Jan. 5 2019 Rep. Hoyer: Dems Could Sue If Trump Declares Nat'l Emergency on Border

Trump also suggested that other people, including rich liberals, build walls "not because they hate the people outside but because they love the people inside".

At the prime time of 9pm, TV networks will show Trump in the Oval Office, typically a projection of power used by presidents before him to address the nation at times of crisis or tragedy.

It's unclear what comes next in the president's border wall funding fight, although he will be meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill Wednesday, and congressional leaders will come to the White House Wednesday afternoon.

The POTUS also blamed the Democrats for the ongoing governmental shutdown.

Tuesday night's primetime address saw both camps drifting even further apart, with Trump declaring a "humanitarian and security crisis" and vowing to protect America, "so help me God" - and Democratic congressional leaders saying Trump is working to "manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration". But he did not mention that Tuesday night. People expect their government to work.

Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall.

Meanwhile, people at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport say their minds are made up on the issue, and the speech will not sway them, either way. "So sad. So awful".

After Trump said that "innocent people" are being "horribly victimized" by immigrants who commit crimes, Smith quickly added perspective.

Trump and White House officials have reportedly been discussing the idea of declaring a national emergency to allow him to move forward with the wall without Congress approving the $5.7bn he is demanding. "At the request of Democrats it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall".

Trump was almost halfway through his 9-minute address before he mentioned the wall, describing it as a request from law enforcement rather than his longstanding political pledge.

Trump sought to put the blame on Democrats for the standoff, saying they "will not fund border security". "Unfortunately, President Trump keeps rejecting the bipartisan House-passed bills". The administration says it will act on its own to ensure the refunds.
