Trump to address Americans amid fears of national emergency

Kirstjen Nielsen Mike Pence Jared Kushner Ja'Ron Smith

Democrats have repeatedly slammed the proposed wall but have remained vague about counter-proposals that would curb illegal immigration.

"Yes, they absolutely work", Morgan said, noting that before Trump became president, increased border security measures enjoyed bipartisan support. He added that once "we start talking about border security as an alternative, we may be able to find a way to provide some funding that is satisfactory to the president and House Democrats".

The four living ex-presidents do not back Trump up on this claim.

With Trump, there were other factors to consider, including his record of deception and his tendency to ramble off script in long speeches.

The White House moved to pre-empt the Democrats, telling reporters Monday that tax refunds would be paid despite the shutdown. The Democrats said no way, no wall.

Trump's prime-time address will come amid a partial government shutdown caused by his insistence that Congress give him more than $5 billion to build a wall on the border.

"Some advice - demand to see the text in advance and if it is not truthful either don't air it or fact check it live on lower third", tweeted Joe Lockhart, the former White House press secretary under President Bill Clinton. "Not just to address the government shutdown but to address the humanitarian crisis at the border".

Mr Trump also visited the southern border last March.

Pitches have provided plenty of talking points throughout the series, which the visitors now lead 2-1. In a surprise, first-team regular Ishant Sharma was not included with the reasons unknown.

CBS was the first of the broadcasters to say it would go ahead and carry the address.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say Democrats should be given time to respond after Trump's address.

Trump maintains that more than $5 billion for a wall is necessary to secure the border. Democrats, who now control the House of Representatives, have consistently opposed it, calling it an expensive, inefficient and an immoral way of trying to resolve immigration issues. "The Democrats don't like concrete, so we'll give them steel", he said.

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. Trump said he wouldn't sign any continuing resolution to keep the government open unless there was wall funding.

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.

Former President Jimmy Carter said he didn't support Trump on the issue.

Mulvaney, who took part in talks with Pence and congressional aides on Saturday, said technical requests bogged them down.
