Government shutdown: Trump appeals to US TV audience over wall

Government shutdown: Trump appeals to US TV audience over wall | 08 Jan 2019 | US President Donald Trump is set to argue that an immigration "crisis" requires his long-promised wall along the Mexican border. Mr Trump will make his case in his first speech from the Oval Office at 21:00EST (0200 GMT Wednesday), ahead of a trip to the border on Thursday. A partial government shutdown has been in effect for 17 days after lawmakers failed to break a budget impasse. The president is insisting that $5bn (£4bn) be included for the border wall.
