Donald Trump Address to The Nation: Americans Hurt by Uncontrolled, Illegal Migration, Says US President Trump pleads on TV for wall funding to fix border ‘crisis’

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.

Hoping to demonstrate flexibility during his almost 10-minute speech from the White House Oval Office, Trump said of the border barrier he wants built: "At the request of the Democrats it will be a steel barrier and not a concrete wall".

One day after saying the shutdown could be resolved with a "45-minute meeting", Trump sat down with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in the White House Situation Room.

The threat said Trump's advisers "would recommend" that he veto the bills, rather than using the stronger language that the "president would" veto the bills that the Office of Management and Budget sometimes uses.

The president said children illegally brought into the U.S. are "used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs", while women and children are "the biggest victims by far of our broken system". He did not mention the caravan that was coming to get us three months ago. "I hope. they have some serious negotiations, and they will come up with an agreement that will satisfy both sides".

Trump told reporters as he was leaving the Capitol that party is "totally unified" in its demands for border security.

Television pundits moved swiftly to correct or challenge President Donald Trump following Tuesday's Oval Office speech on the proposed border wall, after their networks were the target of an unusual debate over whether they should show him at all. Interestingly, the Trump speech from the White House and the Democrats' response from the Capital building were perfectly matched on FNC, which will not be good news to that frequent viewer at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Trump "has put offers on the table. This is about whether we fulfil our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve", Trump said.

The partial government shutdown reached its 18th day, making the closure the second-longest in history.

The president's choice of a primetime national address had been much maligned by many in the political establishment.

Trump said in his address that it is up to Democrats to "pass a spending bill that defends our borders and reopens the government".

Trump has invited congressional leadership to the White House Wednesday to find a solution.

"This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border", he added.

Asked what Trump had gained by walking out of the talks, Pence said: "I think the president made his position very clear today: that there will be no deal without a wall".

"Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don't act right now", Trump said.
