Fox News host Shep Smith wasted no time fact-checking Trump's address

How to watch Trump's border wall speech and Pelosi-Schumer rebuttal on

The fact is: On the very first day of this Congress, House Democrats passed Senate Republican legislation to re-open government and fund smart, effective border security solutions.

Mr Trump has threatened to declare a national emergency over the "crisis" at the border, bypassing congressional approval to build the wall.

Trump nonetheless used the address to stoke fears around immigrants, prompting top Democrats to accuse him of peddling "misinformation and even malice" in a rebuttal of their own that aired immediately after the president's remarks.

"He asked [House] Speaker Pelosi, 'Will you agree to my wall?' she said no", Mr Schumer said.

"Well, unfortunately the president just got up and walked out".

Trump Jr. made his comment on Tuesday evening as his father addressed the nation, calling once again for funding a wall along the US' southern border. "Tell everyone they've got red eyes, they've got sharp claws, if we don't stop 'em they're going to eat our children and our Instagram".

Pressure will ramp up in the coming days as numerous 800,000 federal workers impacted miss out on a pay cheque for the first time since the shutdown begun.

"If you're as outraged by this decision as I am, please call the networks now and demand that they refuse to air Trump's propaganda unchallenged", Rep. Pramila Jayapal, co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, wrote in a blast email for Democracy for America.

The national opinion poll, which ran from January 1 to January 7, found that 51 percent of adults believe Trump "deserves most of the blame" for the shutdown.

Democrats are counting on the prolonged shutdown creating a split in the Republican ranks and having members of Trump's party pressuring him to compromise. More than 38 million Americans who rely on food stamps could see them reduced should the shutdown continue into next month.

Trump gave a nine-minute prime-time address Tuesday night to make the case for his signature domestic policy idea, but made no concessions to opposition Democrats.

Able to get the bills through the House because of the Democratic majority, Pelosi is hoping some Senate Republicans back her up and abandon Trump's wall gambit. Problems can only be fixed when they are identified, but US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's latest release of reports on deaths in 2018 provide significantly less information than prior death investigation reports. Kimmel quipped. "That's either a hall or the White House morgue, I'm not sure". "Our southern border is a vast pipeline for illegal drugs including meth, heroine, cocaine and fentanyl". A source close to Trump's orbit argued that the president's frequent use of "illegal alien", a term the previous administration was loath to employ, bore the fingerprints of Trump consigliere Stephen Miller, who oversees speechwriting in the West Wing.
