Video Clip: President Trump Address on Border Security and the Government Shutdown

Description

President Trump addressed the nation on what the administration argues is a humanitarian and national security crisis on the southern border. This was his first address to the nation from the Oval Office. In his remarks, he talked about his proposal to Congress for border security, saying he was pushing for a steel barrier instead of a wall. He said he had invited Congressional leaders to the White House to resume talks to reopen the government, which was partially shutdown over disagreement between the White House and Congressional Democrats on funding for border security.
