CARL AZUZ: Last night, U.S. President Donald Trump was scheduled to make a primetime address to America. It was set to be his first address from the Oval Office, part of the White House's West Wing and the main subjects were expected to center on the issue of immigration and the campaign promise President Trump made to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Afterward, a response was planned from two prominent Democratic lawmakers, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who've publicly opposed the Trump Administration's plans for the wall.
We'll have coverage of these events in tomorrow's show as the president spends part of his Thursday traveling to America's southern border. This is all taking place as the partial U.S. government shutdown extends into a third week and it's all related. The money to build the wall is a key part of the bigger Federal funding agreement that would end the partial shutdown. So we'll covering all of these topics as part of our objective coverage of U.S. political events.
