Democrats demand TV rebuttal time to Trump's Tuesday address

Here’s how Trump’s shutdown hurts millions of Americans who don’t even work for the federal government

A Republican rebellion against Donald Trump's refusal to reopen government without new money for his Mexico border wall appears to be growing as his TV address failed to break the impasse. Then, he offered nothing new.

Exasperated Democrats called Trump's behaviour a "temper tantrum" and said the meeting broke down when they refused to commit to funding his proposed southern border wall.

Trump said on Twitter, "Thank you for soooo many nice comments regarding my Oval Office speech".

"How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?" he added.

The ripple effects are endless: Amidst all the talk about protecting US borders, a large number of TSA agents are calling in sick due to working without pay, increasing safety risks in airports nationwide.

Mr Trump's remarks made Democrats' evening easier.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer found themselves the butt of numerous jokes online after they delivered their joint response to US President Donald Trump's Tuesday address.

Pelosi noted that Trump had rejected bipartisan legislation to reopen the government agencies shuttered as a result of the fight over the wall.

The President's address was the latest in a series of public appearances - including a Cabinet meeting, a statement in the White House briefing room at which he was flanked by border patrol officers, and a news conference last week - in which Mr Trump simply reiterated his demands without offering any concessions. That's up four points from a similar poll conducted on Dec 21 to 25.

"I have invited congressional leadership to the White House tomorrow to get this done".

A Trump 2020 campaign official said: "Net win".

Trump, who has long railed against illegal immigration at the border, has recently seized on humanitarian concerns to argue there is a broader crisis that can only be solved with a wall. Such a move would likely be met with a court challenge. Trump wrote. "Because walls work". Federal workers are about to miss a paycheck.

Conservative radio and television pundits have encouraged Mr Trump to hold his ground.

Democrats oppose the border wall, calling it ineffective, expensive and immoral.

There had been speculation that Trump might give way in parts of his speech, for example lowering the sticker price for the wall, or offering Democrats flexibility on other areas of immigration policy.

Senator Doug Jones of Alabama said, "We need to dial back the rhetoric and not use fear".

In a "good fences make good neighbors" kind of argument, the president also pointed out that anti-wall politicians like former President Barack Obama build walls around their own houses. They are particularly concerned about the administration's talk of possibly declaring a national emergency at the border, seeing that as an unprecedented claim on the right of Congress to allocate funding except in the most dire circumstances.
