Tonight, Tuesday, January 8, 2019, at 9:00 pm EST, President Donald Trump made his case for funding for a border wall on the US-Mexico border during a national address to the nation from the White House Oval Office, in the video “Trump’s full speech from Oval Office on shutdown and border wall (Full national address)“, below:
For the first time, President is placing the discussion about the wall in the end of the speech rather than the beginning and it was also referred to as “barrier” rather than the “wall”. He is also no longer claiming national emergency.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer delivered a response, in the video “Schumer and Pelosi’s full response to Trump’s border address“, below:
