Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer look like ‘disappointed’ parents during Donald Trump rebuttal

Trump and the Democrats have been duelling during a partial government shutdown over his demands for - and their opposition to - $5.7 billion to begin building a border wall with Mexico.

In an eight-minute address on Tuesday night carried live by all the major U.S. television networks, Mr Trump said the federal government remained shut because of the Democrats.

"I prefer that we get this resolved the old-fashioned way", Thune said.

It is the second longest government shutdown in US history, furloughing 800,000 government workers or forcing them to work without pay.

In another tweet, he reiterated the call to "fix" the southern border.

Also outside the White House, top Republicans accused Democrats of intransigence. The first was the American public, which polls indicate are generally uninterested in his border wall proposal and view the president as responsible for the government shutdown.

Instead, Mr Trump used the president's most symbolic and powerful perch - traditionally reserved for times of war or calls for national unity - to rattle off familiar statistics, renew complaints about Democratic criticism of his plan to build a wall on the Mexican border and reprise ominous anecdotes of brutal crimes committed by people he said were in the country illegally.

"I have invited congressional leadership to the White House tomorrow to get this done". And we can welcome legal immigrants and refugees without compromising safety and security.

Trump is scheduled to visit the southwest border tomorrow and it was not clear whether he still might choose to make the national emergency declaration.

"How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job?" he added. After taking control of the House of Representatives last week, they passed a two-bill spending package that included more than $1.3bn for border security measures that do not include a wall.

Mr Schumer said the president abruptly left when Mrs Pelosi said she would not approve of any wall funding.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith challenged many of Trump's claims by using the government's own numbers.

"Day after day, precious lives are cut short by those who have violated our borders", Trump said. It found a almost identical 41% support for a border wall, and that only 25% support Trump's keeping the government closed as a means to secure funding for the wall.

"President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis and must reopen the government", said Pelosi.

The two leaders said this in a joint statement late Monday: "Now that the television networks have chose 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".

In a 10-minute Oval Office speech, Mr. Trump tried to rally his base and hold his Republican Party together amid a government shutdown he triggered over congressional refusal to fund the wall.
