Trump Wants to Deliver Prime Time Address on Government Shutdown and Will Visit the Border
The White House announced that President Trump would travel to the southern border this week.

President Trump wants to address the nation about the government shutdown on Tuesday night, and later in the week plans to travel to the southern border as part of his effort to persuade Americans of the need for a border wall — the sticking point in negotiations with Democrats who are eager to reopen shuttered agencies.

The White House did not immediately respond to questions about a request to television networks to carve out time for an Oval Office address. A person familiar with the request said the White House had asked to interrupt prime time programming on Tuesday.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, announced Mr. Trump’s plans to travel to the border on Thursday, which would be the 20th day of the partial government shutdown if an agreement between Congress and the White House is not reached in the meantime.

Breathtaking isn't it? Chapter 9 shovels more clean coal into the steam boiler.


They've got tickets for the Cowboys-Rams playoff game.
Send our troops to border NOW!

I assume this trip to the border is to pick up the check from Mexico.

Or at least put a collections notice on their door.

"I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern," Trump tweeted on Monday.

What I wouldn't give for any one of the networks to add a live fact-check.

Precisely why they shouldn't carry him live. His and his admin's continuous telling of easily fact checked lies negates any reason for airing him live.

He'll stick to the script for the address. He'll be cold and unTrumpian. The rambling will burst at 2 AM when he fires up twitter, like a Tourette's sufferer who holds back tics during important occasions but has to let it fly when he leaves the room.

They should put it on a superbowl inspired delay so that they can censor out any "fact malfunctions", so that their innocent viewers aren't subjected to such shocking BS.

They should also run a split screen with every recorded time in chronological order that he has said "Mexico will pay for the wall", including time stamps on each.

The networks are saying they may not give him airtime, so far only CNN and Fox have agreed to give airtime. It would not be the first time the networks declined to air a presidential address live. In 2014 they declined to give airtime for an Obama address on immigration.

The deep red states of Alabama and South Carolina will be watching ESPN, along with most of the football crazed South.

Yeah, I hadn't noticed that Trump said Tuesday (I generally don't pay much attention to what he says)

Of course he could have been lying.

Maybe it should be exclusively broadcast on CSPAN.
