Trump Cites Indian-Origin Cop's Murder To Make Case For Border Wall

Fox News led coverage for President Trump's primetime address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night, drawing 8.2 million viewers from 9-9:15 p.m. ET, easily besting its cable and broadcast competition. He made clear he's willing to extend this present showdown still further.

Democrats also argue that a mix of fencing, which already has been constructed in many parts of the border, and higher-tech tools would be cheaper and more effective in securing the border.

"How much more American blood will be shed before Congress does its job?"

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.

Mr Trump called his meeting with the pair "a total waste of time". White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump would be traveling to the border to "meet with those on the frontlines of the national-security and humanitarian crisis". "Call Congress and ask your representatives to fund the wall".

For now, Trump sees this as winning politics.

Mr Trump attempted to convince his own party to stick with his strategy during a closed-door lunch with Republican senators on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. However, we sharply disagree with the President about the most effective way to do it.

New Captain Marvel footage teases the origin of the Avengers
Marvel has yet to officially announce his character's name, but there are rumors swirling claiming he could be Yon-Rogg. Captain Marvel releases in cinemas on March 8, International Women's Day.

With his use of a formal White House speech instead of his favored Twitter blasts, Trump embraced the ceremonial trappings of his office as he tries to exit a political quagmire of his own making.

Of course, the content of Trump's address-a clear, immigrationist restrictionist message-remained deeply divisive on an increasingly crucible issue in American life.

Naturally, the president's address was also met with criticism from Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who accused him of trying to "stoke fear" - so, you know Trump's boiling over the fact that he was skewered just as badly by his favorite ass-kissing network.

Calling the current situation at the Mexican border "a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul", Trump claimed that building a wall would reduce the harm done to Americans by drug traffickers, criminal gangs, and migrant workers, whom he said undercut the wages of African-Americans and Hispanics. "Division, not unity", the NY senator said. 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.

"There's no crisis at the border", said Sen. "It's ridiculous", said Senator Angus King, a ME independent who caucuses with Democrats.

How much support does President Trump have?

There is no excuse for hurting millions of Americans over a policy difference.
