    Trump Wants to Deliver Prime Time Address on Government Shutdown and Will Visit the Border

    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.

    Tuesday night 9 pm eastern time. This announcement imo will be the end of the shutdown and to declare a national emergency.

    Trump's asking for TV time? Asking the mainstream media?

    Here comes the "National Emergency" declaration.

    Christ, as if the USA isn't a big enough laughing stock internationally, the world is going to watch the leader of the USA declare a national emergency in order to get a monument to himself built. And the truly hilarious part is that about 1/3 of all Americans will support this behaviour.
    Jeez, did you do really do something that stupid? You were as Dumb As Donald!

    With Trump, it's a very safe bet it will be a clown show. He's literally the biggest laughing stock in the world.

    Declaring a national emergency so a wall can get built after the legislation your own party voted for... did not include it...

    If that's what ends up happening, it sounds like a reasonable thing to do that will have absolutely no political blowback.
