American Neo-Gothic? Schumer, Pelosi's Trump Criticism Speech Laughed at Online

American Neo-Gothic? Schumer, Pelosi's Trump Criticism Speech Laughed at Online

President Trump has claimed repeatedly that many federal workers directly impacted by partial U.S. government shutdown have been telling him to keep up the fight for his border wall.

A Fox Sports executive tweeted early on January 9 that the Democratic response outpaced the president's speech with viewers on CNN (by 26%), MSNBC (by 15%), and ABC (by 3%), while CBS saw 3% more viewers for Trump.

The partial shutdown started on December 22 when funding for many federal agencies expired and the US president refused to sign any spending measure from the Congress that did not include United States dollars 5 billion for his US-Mexico border wall.

Standing behind a small podium, the pair fired back at Trump, saying his rhetoric has been "full of misinformation and even malice", just minutes after the president made his case to the nation for the need of a southern border wall.

Democrats insist they will not lift their opposition to the wall project and believe Americans will tire of the shutdown chaos and blame Trump.

The current shutdown, which affects over 800,000 government employees and millions of people who count on key government departments, is now the second-longest in American history.

Trump said on Twitter, "Thank you for soooo many nice comments regarding my Oval Office speech".

"We MUST fix our Southern Border!"

Of course, the content of Trump's address-a clear, immigrationist restrictionist message-remained deeply divisive on an increasingly crucible issue in American life.

But there was no indication the legislation would be brought to a vote in the Republican-held Senate, much less signed by the president. "He said, 'Then we have nothing to discuss".

"I have invited congressional leadership to the White House tomorrow to get this done". There is a crisis on the border and throughout the U.S. immigration system: it is being manufactured by the Trump administration and it won't be resolved by a wall.

Some correspondents have speculated that he may ultimately resort to such a declaration as a last-ditch tactic to allow him to reopen the government without losing face to Democrats.

Trump used emotional language, referring to Americans who were killed by people in the country illegally, saying: "I've met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration".

Before the president's address on border security Tuesday night, put the over/under on the number of lies he'd spew at 3.5.

"We saw a temper tantrum because he couldn't get his way, and he just walked out of the meeting", Schumer said.

Schumer called Trump's actions "really, really unfortunate" and called his behaviour "a temper tantrum".

Mrs Pelosi and Mr Schumer have vowed they will not give Trump any money to build a wall. Instead, he renewed his notice that he might declare a national emergency and try to authorise the wall on his own if Congress wouldn't approve the $5.7bn he's asking for. Democrats would nearly certainly move to block Trump, likely starting a protracted court battle.

Trump will follow up his speech with a rare trip to the Mexico border on Thursday, but showed little enthusiasm for either the Oval Office speech or the border trip during an off-the-record lunch Tuesday with television anchors, The New York Times reported.
