Trump to address nation about ‘crisis’ at wall

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump says he will address the nation Tuesday night about what he says is a “crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump’s prime-time address will come amid a partial government shutdown caused by his insistence that Congress give him more than $5 billion to build a wall on the border. Congressional Democrats are refusing to pay for a wall.

Trump also plans a trip Thursday to the southern border to highlight his demands for the wall.

Trump tweets that he will address the nation at 9 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday.

NBC will also air the rebuttals on the Democratic side.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer will lead the rebuttal for the Democrats.
