Carter joins Bush, Clinton and Obama in denying support for Trump’s wall

Carter joins Bush, Clinton and Obama in denying support for Trump’s wall

Both CNN and Fox News say they'll air President Trump's prime-time address to the country Tuesday evening, in which Trump says he'll talk about "the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border". He'll be followed by a televised joint response from Democratic leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who adamantly oppose paying for a wall and are demanding Trump agree to re-open the government.

All the major over-the-air networks, as well as cable news channels Fox News and CNN, plan to carry the Trump speech, according to company representatives.

All the major US television networks agreed to air Trump's speech, prompting Democrats, who say a wall would be expensive, inefficient and immoral, to seek equal time. And former Vice President Joe Biden said he "can't think of a single" past president who wanted a border wall. That's because of stats like those compiled by the Washington Post's Fact Checker team: the president, through December 31, Trump has uttered 7,645 false or misleading statements.

The governors say federal workers are being hurt and state business is being affected by shutdowns of federal departments and agencies. Conway declined to comment, explaining she had not seen it "and here at the White House I'm not meant to be political". Former President Barack Obama has spoken against the wall publicly and hasn't interacted with Trump since leaving office in 2017, aside from a small encounter at former President George H.W. Bush's funeral last month.

Asked whether cracks were forming between the White House and Republicans eager for the shutdown to end, Pence told reporters at a briefing Monday that, "We've been in touch with those members and others".

Pence told NBC's "Today" show on Tuesday, "I know the president has said that was his impression from previous presidents".

Democrats say other border security measures are more efficient and cost-effective than a wall, which they say is contrary to American values.

Pochettino: It's Eriksen's right to do what he wants
The Denmark worldwide has just 18 months remaining on his contract and has been linked with several of Europe's biggest clubs. He said: "No news is good news". "Football is dynamic; it's about interests the manager sometimes can't manage".

Here are some of the biggest falsehoods the president is likely to tell on Tuesday.

The current funding bill doesn't include $5.7 billion for some kind of border barrier or wall.

He's also floated the possibility of declaring an emergency to complete his oft-repeated campaign promise.

But Trump and the Transportation Security Administration pushed back on any suggestion that the call-outs represented a "sickout" that was having a significant effect on US air travel.

While explaining his position, Morgan recalled the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was initially created to "help protect the American people" and make USA borders "more secure", hinting that "the strategy has never changed".

Trump has hinted in recent days that he may do so, amidst an impasse in negotiations with Democrats that has shut down the government. Hundreds of thousands of federal workers face missed paychecks Friday as the shutdown drags through a third week.
