Trump Border Wall Prime-Time Speech

Trump Address

President Donald Trump used the powerful setting of the Oval Office to deliver his first primetime TV address calling on members of Congress – particularly Democrats – to fund a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Democrats countered that the federal government could be reopened while a debate over border funding continues.

“This is a humanitarian crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” Trump said in his remarks to the nation.

He said that illegal immigrants crossing the southern border were taking jobs from African-Americans and Latino-Americans; increasing crime from gang activity; proliferating drugs throughout America; and hurting women and children through sex trafficking.      MORE
