Trump, in first-ever prime time Oval Office address, laments 'crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul' at border

Trump, in first-ever prime time Oval Office address, laments 'crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul' at border | 09 Jan 2019 | President Trump used his first-ever prime time address from the Oval Office on Tuesday night to make his case for funding a southern border wall -- as well as to emphasize the human cost of what he called the "growing humanitarian and security crisis" of surging illegal immigration. The speech, which was followed moments later by a rebuttal from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, drew seemingly deep lines in the sand as Republicans and Democrats plan to meet Wednesday to continue negotiations to end the ongoing partial federal government shutdown over border wall funding, now in its third week. Trump has said the shutdown could last for "years" if no deal is reached.
