Democrats Deliver Response to Trump's Prime Time Address

Democrats Deliver Response to Trump's Prime Time Address

"Women and children at the border are not a security threat", she said. He accused Trump of trying to "stoke fear and divert attention" from his tumultuous administration.

Trump, who will visit the Mexican border in person on Thursday, invited the Democrats to return to the White House to meet with him on Wednesday, saying it was "immoral" for "politicians to do nothing".

Meanwhile, Pelosi and Schumer stood firm with their position that the government shutdown must end in order to continue talks about border funding.

Vice President Mike Pence says President Donald Trump's recent claim that his predecessors endorsed his idea of a U.S. -Mexico border wall was an "impression".

Following the president's address on Tuesday, Smith fact-checked a number of the claims made by Trump, such as murder rates among undocumented migrants and drug flows, which did not match government statistics, Mediaite reported.

Trump used emotional language, referring to Americans who were killed by people in the country illegally, saying: "I've met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration".

"This situation could be solved in a 45-minute meeting", he said, calling on members of Congress to pass a bill that would end the border "crisis".

The bill is likely to come up in the Lok Sabha tomorrow which is the scheduled last day of the winter session of Parliament. The AGP had entered into an alliance with the BJP before the 2014 polls and was opposed to the Bill since the beginning.


People are speaking out, following separate speeches by President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer. "Our responsibility is to do what we think is in the best interest of the American people and the effective and efficient operations of their government". "So sad. So bad".

Alan Jacobs says when it comes to Donald Trump people for and against his Presidency probably already had their minds up before he made his address.

The speech is scheduled for 9 p.m. EST from the White House.

The administration is also at least talking about the idea of declaring a national emergency to allow Trump to move forward on the wall without Congress approving the $5.6 billion he wants. 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.

The debate over funding for the barrier has been at the center of a partial federal government shutdown. "Unfortunately, President Trump keeps rejecting the bipartisan House-passed bills".

Schumer says, "American democracy doesn't work that way".

"Most presidents have used Oval Office addresses for noble purposes", said Schumer, D-N.Y.
