Democrats Deliver Response to Trump's Prime Time Address

President Donald Trump speaks on the South Lawn of the White House as he walks from Marine One Sunday Jan. 6 2019 in Washington. Trump returned from a trip to Camp David

During the response, Pelosi said the House has passed Senate Republican legislation to re-open the governement and fund " smart, effective border security solutions", but said Trump is "rejecting these bipartisan bills which would re-open government - over his obsession with forcing American taxpayers to waste billions of dollars on an expensive and ineffective wall - a wall he always promised Mexico would pay for!"

Following Trump's address, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer of NY and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California gave an opposition response.

The president also referred to how drugs such as meth, heroin, and fentanyl were coming through the southern border, and that this would be stymied by a wall that would pay for itself with a new trade deal with Mexico.

Trump called on Democrats to return to the White House to meet with him, saying it was "immoral" for "politicians to do nothing".

The president says among those hit hardest by illegal immigration are African-Americans and Hispanics, though he did not provide any evidence to back that up.

Drugs, terrorists, violent criminals, and child traffickers trying to enter our country though our southern border.

Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall. "This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis". I've held the hands of the weeping mothers and embraced the grief-stricken fathers.

The president often highlights such incidents, though studies over several years have found immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than people born in the United States. But he did not mention that Tuesday night.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith disputed claims made by Donald Trump during his first prime-time Oval Office address in an unusual sign of disagreement between the president and his favored news channel.

The speech is scheduled for 9 p.m. EST from the White House. The government is in its third week of a partial shutdown over wall funding.

Trump sought to put the blame on Democrats for the standoff, saying they "will not fund border security".

Smith then asked Chris Wallace about whether the president's address had made the case for Trump's base. "Both Pelosi and Schumer know their foundational argument but will firm up their rebuttal in real time because of uncertainty surrounding where President Trump may lead the American people", a source close to the preparations told the newspaper.
