TFT - President Trump Delivers First Primetime Address
On Tuesday, President Trump delivered his first prime-time address from the Oval Office to discuss immigration policy and the ongoing shutdown.
In December, Congress failed to pass the necessary spending legislation resulting in a partial government shutdown. Upon returning after the holidays, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) quickly moved to pass a package of six spending bills to reopen almost all of the federal agencies, as well as a continuing resolution (CR) that would fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through Feb. 8. The CR would have provided only $1.3 billion for border security and no additional funds for President Trump’s border wall.
