President Donald Trump gave a televised primetime address from the Oval Office Tuesday night to discuss what he called a “growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border,” as negotiations on funding the federal government continue to stall over Trump’s proposed border wall. Shortly after the White House address, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer provided their own televised response, saying the president “has appealed to fear, not facts.”
