Trump to give primetime public address regarding border wall on Tuesday

The address is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Democratic lawmakers are refusing to negotiate with the White House over funding for a proposed wall along the US southern border unless the government is reopened, Vice President Mike Pence told reporters Monday in a briefing at his ceremonial office.

The speech is part of a public relations blitz by the president on the issue. The partial government shutdown is on its 17th day.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say Democrats should be given time to respond after Trump's address.

"I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border", Trump tweeted.

Since the entire system is modular, users can customize their own display to fit the space perfectly. Samsung has also managed to cut down the thickness of the TV from 80mm to 30mm.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says President Donald Trump will be traveling to the U.S. -Mexico border on Thursday as a partial government shutdown continues.

Trump announced the prime-time address regarding the "humanitarian and national security crisis" at the southern border on Twitter Monday afternoon. "Instead, he is still demanding that American taxpayers pay at least $5.7 billion for his wall, which can't pass either chamber of Congress and of course Mexico is not paying for".

Trump's tweet came shortly after The New York Times reported that the White House had requested prime-time television slots on Tuesday night for Trump to make an Oval Office address on the border wall and government shutdown.

Trump is betting that by demanding a see-through steel barrier along the border and by changing its nomenclature that Democrats can claim a victory in changing his demands and still provide funds for border security. "More details will be announced soon".

On Sunday news shows, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney argued that Trump has given ground by agreeing to back away from his insistence on an opaque, solid wall.
