Schumer Says A Wall 'Ineffective,' 'Unnecessary.' Here's What He Said In 2009

Jimmy Kimmel Gives Federal Workers a Job During Government Shutdown

CNN managed to garner 3.6 million viewers during that half-hour time frame, beating out MSNBC in the key demographic with 1.4 million viewers.

Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer complained President Donald Trump's proposed border wall was "ineffective" and "unnecessary" in a rebuttal speech on Tuesday night, which is the exact opposite of what he said in 2009.

"For those who refuse to compromise in the name of in the name of border security, I would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken", Trump said.

CNN brought on Daniel Dale, a White House correspondent for the Toronto Star, who has become known for cataloguing Trump misstatements, and he said the president falsely asserted it was the Democrats who had advanced the idea of a steel barrier instead of a wall.

"The president made no news and no new proposals", he said.

Fox News almost eclipsed both networks by 1.5 million viewers over the course of the night from 8 p.m.to 11 p.m. EST.

Veteran ABC anchor Ted Koppel, speaking with The New York Times, said Trump deserved the "benefit of the doubt". As a stalemate between Congress and the president continues, Trump hasconsidered using national emergency powers to declare a crisis at the border in order to build a wall without the approval of lawmakers.

The leadership duo rejected the president's assessment that the situation on the U.S. Southern border is a "crisis".

Tuesday's prime time speech follows several other on-camera pitches for a border wall in the last week, including a surprise appearance at the White House briefing room and a 90-minute Cabinet meeting that the Washington Post's Glenn Kessler called a "fact-checking nightmare".

Brevity went a long way toward securing those high ratings, as very little of what was presented to the American people on Tuesday night was new material. Republicans and President Trump want to stop the madness taking place on the border. CNN drew 1.3 million, while MSNBC garnered 811,000 in the demo. "Otherwise, they're just passing on his lies unfiltered", Meyers said. Sanders, a political independent who caucuses with the Democrats, delivered an individual response of his own, separate from Schumer and Pelosi, as he has before on similar occasions, such as the State of the Union.
