Listen: President Trump to Address Border Situation In Prime-Time Address

 

President Donald Trump will speak to the nation this evening to provide an update on the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border during a prime-time address. 

You can hear the address LIVE at 6 p.m. on AM600 KOGO or via the iHeart app .

Immediately following the president's address, Democrats are set to provide a response which will also be broadcast on KOGO. 

With no breakthrough in sight, the president is set to argue that a "crisis" at the U.S.-Mexico border requires the wall he's demanding before ending the partial government shutdown. 

President Trump will follow his Tuesday address with a visit Thursday to the southern border. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted that he will use the visit to "meet with those on the front lines of the national security and humanitarian crisis."

The administration is also at least talking about declaring a national emergency to allow Trump to move forward on the wall without Congress approving the $5.6 billion he wants.

In the meantime, hundreds of thousands of federal workers face missed paychecks Friday as the shutdown drags through a third week.
