Schumer also gave their impression of President Trump's Oval Office address from Tuesday night.

The president argued that a "growing humanitarian and security crisis" at the southern border requires the government to put down $5.7 billion for a border wall, in addition to new technology and detention beds.

Trump's visit to the Capitol was arranged after a handful of Republican senators - including Susan Collins of Maine, Cory Gardner of Colorado and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - broke ranks with the GOP president and called on him to seek common ground with Democratic leaders.

The Democrats, Levin explained, are only taking their position on the wall and on illegal immigration to gain power.

"A crisis of the heart, and a crisis of the soul", Trump said in the prime time address from the Oval Office. They are particularly concerned about the administration's talk of possibly declaring a national emergency at the border, seeing that as an unprecedented claim on the right of Congress to allocate funding except in the most dire circumstances. "They can't watch every inch of the border, so that would help them take more control of the whole situation". Nothing. They are part of the scam artists. They never really stood a chance. "But they're not going to fool Donald Trump, who's dealt with tougher than Pelosi and Schumer". Speaking in solemn tones from behind the Resolute Desk, he painted a dire picture of killings and drug deaths he argues come from unchecked illegal immigration.

Sources told the New York Post that Pelosi and Schumer did not prepare a script for their response. The Fence Act passed 283-138 in the House and 80-19 in the Senate. "They voted for border security".

Vice President Mike Pence was asked how Mr. Trump walking out of the room is productive.

She blamed Trump for rejecting the "bipartisan bills which would re-open government - over his obsession with forcing American taxpayers to waste billions of dollars on an expensive and ineffective wall - a wall he always promised Mexico would pay for!"

On "Outnumbered", Hegseth lamented that the Democratic leadership is not interested in cooperation or compromise, just denying Trump a victory on one of his signature campaign promises.

"We still don't understand why the Democrats are so wholeheartedly against [the border wall]". They voted to authorize walls. "Then-Senator Obama voted for it. Senator Schumer voted for it. Senator Clinton voted for it".

For now, Trump sees this as winning politics. According to CBP data, officials encountered only six immigrants at ports of entry at the southern border whose names were on the federal government's suspected terrorists list in early 2018.

The following quarter-hour, including analysis and the Pelosi-Schumer rebuttal, averaged 29.3 across the same networks, a bump of about 4 percent.
