Trump to focus on border 'crisis,' seek wall support in televised address

Trump to focus on border 'crisis,' seek wall support in televised address”

President Donald Trump will argue to the nation Tuesday night that a "crisis" at the U.S. -Mexico border requires the long and invulnerable wall he's demanding before ending a partial government shutdown that has hundreds of thousands of federal workers fearing missed paychecks on Friday. Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of NY on Monday night said any spending bill with that much wall funding "can't pass either chamber of Congress".

ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Broadcasting, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, MSNBC and NBC have all said they would air the rebuttal.

Jimmy Carter on Monday joined the list of former USA presidents to deny Donald Trump's claims that "some" of them told him they regret not building a wall along the border with Mexico. "It's not likely that Democrats will give him a huge, huge win-both symbolically and practically on this wall".

Flooding in the Philippines leaves 56 dead
However, Yucot said many others chose to stay after the government's weather agency downgraded the storm's severity warning. The tropical depression, which has since been downgraded to a low pressure area, left the Philippines on this afternoon.

But Tuesday morning, Pelosi and Schumer announced that they would "deliver a response to President Trump's 9:00 p.m. E.T. address Tuesday evening following the conclusion of his remarks".

Philip also blew up the argument that Jared Kushner is reportedly making to Republicans in Congress, which is that approval for Trump's wall will increase after his address and a planned visit to the border.

Democrats are also working to sway some moderate and skeptical Republicans to abandon Trump on the wall. In fact, Morgan - whom Trump fired in the early days of his administration - said "historical data" and "facts" confirm walls effectively mitigate illegal immigration.

Trump visits troops in Iraq
President Donald Trump , who is visiting Iraq, says he has "no plans at all" to remove US troops from the country. Trump told the troops that other people wanted their raise to be smaller, but he fought for a double-digit boost.

The President and congressional Democrats have been at an impasse over Trump's demand for $5 billion in federal funding to build a wall on the southern border, which has led to 25% of the federal government to shut down due to the spending lapse. Conway declined to comment, explaining she had not seen it "and here at the White House I'm not meant to be political".

"The wall only pushes people out to more risky, treacherous crossings, creating even more death", she said. "It's a national emergency", President Trump said on Sunday, as he spoke about his deliberations. Former President Barack Obama has spoken against the wall publicly and hasn't interacted with Trump since leaving office in 2017, aside from a small encounter at former President George H.W. Bush's funeral last month.

Because of it, the government has been partially shut down since December 22 and hundreds of thousands of federal workers have either been furloughed or are working without pay.

Trump declares end to United States 'policeman' role in surprise Iraq visit
The Iraqi prime minister recently said Iraqi troops could deploy into Syria to protect Iraq from threats across its borders. Trump had planned to spend Christmas at his private club in Florida, but stayed behind in Washington due to the shutdown.

Trump has offered concessions, agreeing to build the barrier with steel rather than concrete. "That's how we became America. Some of them have told me that we should have done it". "You let a bully succeed, you'll be bullied again worse", Schumer said at a breakfast with the Association for a Better New York. "It's a national emergency", Trump said on October 31, 2016, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. "And cut away if he goes off text and starts lying".
