Democrats demand TV rebuttal time to Trump's Tuesday address

Donald Trump Address to The Nation: Americans Hurt by Uncontrolled, Illegal Migration, Says US President

During the Democratic rebuttal delivered following Trump's speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pointed out that much of the "crisis" at the southern border has been manufactured by Trump's administration-and Democrats have largely been the ones scrambling to stop the disaster.

President Trump is tapping into one of the powers of the presidency, a televised Oval Office address, for his first time.

Democratic leaders talk with reporters after the meeting with President Trump.

He said: "He asked Speaker Pelosi, 'Will you agree to my wall?' She said no".

"From all those drugs come all these other problems", she said, adding, "We've got to get a handle on it". We don't govern by temper tantrum.

Donald Trump warns California he'll cut FEMA funding for wildfire recovery
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Republicans to condemn Trump and get him to reassure Californians needed assistance. Trump's threat to withhold FEMA funds from recent wildfire survivors drew a swift rebuke from California Sen.

He appealed to Congress to end "this crisis" and for every American to "call Congress" and tell them to "secure our border".

Instead, he renewed his notice that he might declare a national emergency and try to authorise the wall on his own if Congress wouldn't approve the $5.7bn he's asking for. Lindsey Graham joined Hannity to suggest Trump's stand represents the best chance to improve border security.

The ripple effects are endless: Amidst all the talk about protecting US borders, a large number of TSA agents are calling in sick due to working without pay, increasing safety risks in airports nationwide.

Trump appeared to clearly signal that he, indeed, remains committed to keeping the government shut down "for months or even years", and, under pressure from the Right, that he will reject most political trades being discussed in Washington-most notably, a so-called wall for DACA deal.

The partial government shutdown reached its 18th day, making the closure the second-longest in history.

De Blasio Says City Will ‘Guarantee Health Care For All New Yorkers’
However, de Blasio believes it will ultimately save the city money by drastically reducing residents' trips to the emergency room. De Blasio said that when the program is fully implemented it will be the most comprehensive health care system in the country.

"These two. I don't know how many years Ryan and Kelly have left on their contract, but if Nancy and Chuck ever decide to team up... someone needs to get Gelman on the phone". There is a crisis on the border and throughout the U.S. immigration system: it is being manufactured by the Trump administration and it won't be resolved by a wall. There is bipartisan legislation - supported by Democrats and Republicans - to re-open government while allowing debate over border security to continue.

Moments after the White House meeting disintegrated, the president headed to Twitter to vent his frustration. But Trump has demanded more than $5 billion for a barrier, which he now says could be steel slats rather than the solid concrete.

An October 2018 report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency detailed the prevalence and source of a number of drugs, including those Trump mentioned Tuesday - heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine.

The president used a series of murders to highlight why "illegal aliens" need to be kept out, from a police officer killed on Boxing Day to a veteran who was raped and murdered in California.
