In response to President Trump’s prime-time Oval Office address on Tuesday night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer will deliver their own joint response the same night. The topics are likely to focus on the government shutdown and border security. In a statement, Schumer and Pelosi insisted Democrats be given equal airtime. They also claimed Trump’s speech will be “full of malice and misinformation…”
- Whose address will have more misinformation?
- Are Democrats likely to find a border-wall compromise with the White House soon?
