WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is taking over the nation’s airwaves Tuesday night to argue his case for a U.S.-Mexico border wall — and Democrats are not happy about it.

Representatives for ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox Broadcasting, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, MSNBC and NBC confirmed plans to air Trump’s address live at 9 p.m. Eastern.

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

“Now that the television networks have decided to air the President’s address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime,” they wrote in a joint statement Monday night.

Trump’s address will come in the third week of a partial government shutdown, the result of a stalemate with congressional Democrats over $5 billion the president wants for the U.S.-Mexico border wall. Democrats are refusing to pay for it, noting that he repeatedly promised that Mexico would foot the bill for it.

The speech is part of a public relations blitz by the president. Trump has scheduled a trip to the border Thursday to highlight his demands for a wall.

    I’ll make sure I turn my tv to the commercial channel! I’d rather watch 24 hours on non-stop commercials then listen to his orange BS.

  3. #boycott., #boycott. Nobody will be watching this fool sprew more lies, except for his cult followers, aka huf, macdummy and the like. Congress shouldn’t be getting paid until the govt is reopened, period!!!!!

    Why? #45 stated over and over that Mexico was going to pay for the wall. When is Mexico going to pay for the wall? Let’s see if he addresses that during “lying time.” Will Putin be in the oval with his hand stuck up his back moving that puppet’s mouth? Since he’s going on national tv; please lower the lights, fix the puffiness around his eyes, give that fool better teeth, and fix his wig. He is a disaster to listen to and flat out physically gross.

  5. Chump is prepared to go on television tonite and tell another LIE.

    This time, he will make out that it is a NATIONAL EMERGENCY when it comes to building the
    wall against Mexico.

    The only national emergency is the folks who ARE AFFECTED by the damn gov’t shutdown.
    He needs to speak about the federal employee’s who are faithfully going to work everyday,
    even though THEY ARE NOT BEING PAID.

    Chump needs to SHOW some APATHY/COMPASSION -IF THAT IS POSSIBLE coming from his dumbass.

    He also needs to consider that while this shutdown is going on-the FDA CANNOT inspect the meats coming from butchered animals, the increases in the prices of fresh produce-due to the immigrants being detained and UNABLE to pick the produce.

    This will be just another PUBLICITY stunt for Chump and that UGLY cow-Sarah Huckabee!!!

    I plan on watching ANOTHER tv channel-DON’T want any part of this b.s.!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • @huf— ur fake prez didn’t realize the impact of shutting down the govt would have on everyday folk. This fool is breaking all kind of laws. He/u will never get that damn wall. Get a life and get off this website.


  6. yep cause this says it all mean while the plantation neggros continue to allow the Democratic party to sell them out for a new class of minority’s we use to be the largest minority group not any more so what do you think will happen when they no longer need our VOTE

  7. Won’t be watching this shigady. The man is a mental re-tard! Talking about he can relate to those not getting paid. Say what??? I thought you are a Billionaire (which I doubt because our president brags about everything, and I’m thinking if he really was a billionaire he’s show us his tax returns……and say see……I’m rich).
