Trump will deliver a message to the nation on the security of the southern border
US President Donald Trump announced that on Tuesday he will speak on the crisis around the security of the southern border.
Earlier, Trump said that since Congress has not taken a budget for several weeks, he can declare a state of emergency in the country and “very quickly” with his own power to build a wall on the border with Mexico.
“I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Ensuring the security of the southern border of the United States was one of Trump’s campaign promises: the president intends to protect the border from illegal immigration with a wall, but the question of its financing remains open. Trump calls for an additional $ 5.6 billion to secure the border and build barriers on it.
Democrats who have gained control in the House of Representatives do not agree with these demands. As a result, since December 22, about a quarter of US federal agencies reduced their jobs due to the lack of approved funding.
