Major Networks Will Cover Schumer And Pelosi’s Rebuttal To Trump’s National Address

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi

ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox broadcasting, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network and MSNBC will air the Democratic rebuttal to the address after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requested an equivalent slot to the president's, reported The Associated Press.

Minutes after the president's address to the nation wrapped up, reactions started pouring in on social media from prominent figures like politicians, authors, journalists and humanitarian organizations.

After the four major networks made a decision to give President Trump the opportunity to address the nation during prime time at 9 p.m. He showed compassion for the children who he said had been used as pawns.

There was no sign Trump was backing down from his demand for $5.7 billion for the border wall in exchange for ending the shutdown. They don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside.

"[Trump] used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis", the Brooklynite added.

On Tuesday night, the president looked to make his case to the American public that illegal immigrants are bringing drugs and crime into the US, demanding immediate action to erect barriers at the border and further increase technology to prevent illegal crossings.

Trump meets with Senate Republicans Wednesday on Capitol Hill just hours after he argued on national television that a border wall was needed to resolve a security and humanitarian "crisis".

Trump did not mention that idea Tuesday night. 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.

Trump and his allies say Democrats, many of whom supported border security measures in the past, are only bucking the calls now because of knee-jerk opposition to his administration. Schumer and House Speaker Pelosi on building the wall.

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

The White House moved to pre-empt the Democrats, telling reporters Monday that tax refunds would be paid despite the shutdown.

In response, Pelosi and Schumer directed their focus mainly toward bringing an end to the "senseless" ongoing government shutdown, and offered their own fact-checking of Trump's border security-related claims. The administration says it will act on its own to ensure the refunds.

But a growing number of Republicans are uncomfortable with the toll the partial shutdown is taking, and Trump's response to it. At a private meeting with House Republicans, Vice President Mike Pence cited a C.S. Lewis quote calling courage a virtue, and he said Trump has no plans to retreat.
