Trump demands funding for border ‘barrier’ in US TV address


US President Donald Trump has demanded funding for his long-promised US-Mexico border wall to halt “a growing humanitarian and security crisis”.

But in his first TV address to the nation from the Oval Office, Mr Trump did not declare a national emergency to bypass Congress and build the barrier.

Democratic leaders were delivering a televised rebuttal to the Republican president’s remarks afterwards.

Both sides are trying to gain an edge amid an 18-day government shutdown.
