President To Deliver Prime-Time Address
January 8th, 2019
President Trump will deliver a prime-time address to the nation and visit the US-Mexico border. Trump tweeted that he will speak tonight "on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border.” The White House asked the broadcast networks to set aside at least eight minutes at 9 p.m. ET. The networks debated whether to carry the address live. But in the end, they agreed to the White House request and will air the speech. The president plans to visit the border on Thursday. Some believe Trump may declare a state of national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border.
