Shutdown standoff hits prime time with President Trump’s address to the nation

President Trump took to prime-time TV to make his case for a $5 billion dollar taxpayer-funded wall on the US southern border, calling the situation a “national emergency.”

    • The Democrat-controlled House has refused to pass legislation with wall funding, a dispute that has shuttered part of the federal government, affected over 800,000 federal workers.
    • The president made his case directly to the American people; Democrats followed with their perspective.
