Trump Threw 'Temper Tantrum' After Dems Refused Border Wall, Chuck Schumer Says

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

The Republican president ended talks after Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer stuck by their refusal to fund his planned US-Mexico border wall.

A couple of weeks ago, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly waylaid Schumer to try to strike a bargain: a funding bill for DHS with $1 billion for the administration's non-wall related immigration projects.

The mounting impact of the partial shutdown, which initially was limited but will increase as more federal workers miss paychecks this cycle and services like those at national parks suffer, is likely to increase pressure on Congress and the White House to forge a deal in the coming days. Those demands have put negotiations between Republicans and Democrats at a standstill, as Democrats say they will not capitulate to what they call a "waste" of taxpayer dollars for "an expensive and ineffective wall".

The list of networks that confirmed they're carrying the address includes: ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, PBS, CNN, Fox News, Fox Business and MSNBC. So our suggestion is a simple one: Mr. President: re-open the government and we can work to resolve our differences over border security.

"I shared my support for the need for border security in the country and what we need to do from a humanitarian perspective, but recognition that when the government is shut down there are consequences and people are starting to feel those consequences", she said.

The president's trip to Capitol Hill is only his fifth public outing since the shutdown began in late December and it follows his first Oval Office address to the nation Tuesday night looking to make his case directly to the public.

"He asked Speaker Pelosi, 'will you agree to my wall?' She said no".

Democrats have accused the President of over blowing the situation and manufacturing a crisis.

But Tuesday morning, Pelosi and Schumer announced that they would "deliver a response to President Trump's 9:00 p.m. E.T. address Tuesday evening following the conclusion of his remarks".

"Last night the president spat more malice and misinformation appealing to fear instead of facts", Pelosi said. "I want us to figure out how we can provide for security in this country - meet the president's priority there, address the humanitarian issues - but do so while we have a functioning government and being in a partial shutdown is a partial shutdown".

And White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney noted Sunday that border wall construction "requires appropriation" of federal funds from Congress, even if financial benefits from the trade deal help cover the cost. "I said bye-bye, nothing else works!"

On "Outnumbered", Hegseth lamented that the Democratic leadership is not interested in cooperation or compromise, just denying Trump a victory on one of his signature campaign promises.

"I just listened to Senator Schumer", McCarthy, a California Republican, said.
