All Major Networks to Air President Trump’s Address to the Nation

Trump has made building a wall- like these prototypes seen from Tijuana

He noted that the networks declined to air past presidents' addresses, including one from former president Barack Obama.

Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert was equally blunt in his tweet, writing that "my network will be carrying Trump's Wall speech live".

While its repercussions ripple across the country, Mr Trump has also threatened to bypass Congress and invoke emergency powers to build the wall along half the 2,000-mile (3,100km) border.

In recent days, Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has also seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall. "Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern". It invited representatives from cable news outlets to a White House lunch with Trump ahead of the address, a gesture that is typically reserved for the lead-up to State of the Union speeches. NBC News reported on Monday that USA border protection officials stopped only six immigrants in the first half of 2018 whose names were on a list of suspected terrorists, in contrast to White House claims that the number was in the thousands.

"Speculation that Trump would use the address to declare a national emergency gathered steam after he approvingly cited a Democratic lawmaker Adam Smith, the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who agreed there is a provision in law that says a president can declare an emergency", without adding the Congressman's reservation: "Declaring an emergency on our border.to take $20-30B out of the Dept. of Defense to build a wall is probably the worst public policy idea I've heard in about 10 years".

Migrants break through the USA border fence just beyond the east pedestrian entrance of the San Ysidro crossing in Tijuana, Mexico, on November 25, 2018. He's asked Congress for $5.6 billion. "Do they want to run the promise of more lies, more misleading statistics, more twisting of reality, mindless confrontation, all for the sake of defending Trump's dark twisted fantasy and a wall on the Mexican border?"

NBC, Fox and CBS so far have said that they will air a Democratic response to President Donald Trump's primetime address on border security on Tuesday evening, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer requested the time.

"Now that the television networks have made a decision to air the President's address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime", they demanded in a joint statement on Monday night.

Democrats have repeatedly slammed the proposed wall but have remained vague about counter-proposals that would curb illegal immigration. Schumer himself admitted last week that "a fence works" but claimed that "a concrete wall is expensive and it doesn't work".

It also found that only 35 percent of adults in the United States support a congressional spending bill that includes funding for the wall, and 25 percent support Trump's decision to keep the government closed until Congress approves funding for the wall.

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