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

Posted January 10, 2019

McConnell has not budged from his hard line of refusing to bring up any government funding bill without Trump's backing even as a few members of his caucus have called for an end to the standoff.

Trump wrote. He called the meeting a "waste of time".

Fox News averaged 8 million total viewers and 1.9 million in the 25-54 age demographic from 9-9:30 p.m. EST, a time slot that included the president's speech as well the rebuttal address by House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

It is the second longest government shutdown in USA history, furloughing 800,000 government workers or forcing them to work without pay. But end this shutdown now.

Trump offered no new solutions at a nationwide televised address on Tuesday evening, but instead insisted that a wall was necessary to stem the flow of illegal immigration. "A very interesting experience!"

So it's not proper appropriate for Democrats or anybody in Congress to represent Americans and speak this way. Prior to making the comments, she had spoken about the meaningfulness of being a role-model for young girls.

Trump's narrative about the southern border "really is fiction".

The lack of progress in negotiations raises the prospect that Trump will declare a national emergency, a move that would bypass Congress and enable him to obtain funds from the Defense Department to build the wall.

Democrats, newly in control of the House of Representatives, have said they will not allocate any money toward the wall, which remains a popular concept within Trump's base but has little support from the broader American public.

However, Kimmel said that Trump has made a "big mistake" in his attempts to achieve this. Trump often issues video messages from the White House, but has been more gun-shy than other presidents to use the bully pulpit of the primetime address to whip support on a political issue. Trump's insistence on $5 billion in funding for the wall lies at the center of the current partial government shutdown, which is entering its third week.

American democracy doesn't work that way.

With this victory, the Man City boss will be desperate for his players to keep the pressure on Liverpool and hope that they crack. "If Mo is on his feet - not in the moment when he jumps over him - we talk differently (about the outcome)".

"Again, we saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way", Schumer added. Both Trump and the Democrats have agreed there is a crisis at the border. "We should be re-opening the government", Senator Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire told VOA. And at that point I think the president thought there was no longer any reason to be talking at this meeting. "It's ridiculous", said Senator Angus King, a ME independent who caucuses with Democrats. This barrier is absolutely critical to border security.

This is the nonpartisan energy we need in 2019!

He said Mr Trump needs to re-open government while allowing the debate over border security to continue. Remarks should get covered and formal White House addresses should be broadcast.

Ms. Jayapal claimed Mr. Trump made 6,420 false or misleading claims over the past 649 days. We'll update with more speech numbers as they come in later, stay tuned. "He just walked out of the meeting". "No president should pound the table and demand he gets his way or else the government shuts down, hurting millions of Americans who are treated as leverage".

An October 2018 report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency detailed the prevalence and source of a number of drugs, including those Trump mentioned Tuesday - heroin, fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine. "More Americans will die this year due to drugs than were killed in the entire Vietnam war", he said.

North Korea’s Kim wants more summits with Moon next year - Blue House
The timing of the speech is unclear, since North Korea rarely provides advance notice about Kim's schedule. Kim said he was willing to meet Trump at any time and urged corresponding measures from the U.S.

Trump spoke of a "humanitarian and security crisis" at the border and invoked cases such as that of a police officer "savagely murdered in cold blood by an illegal alien".
