Last night, President Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office. He spoke about the humanitarian crisis at the border and urged his Democratic colleagues in DC to put America first and close the border.
Trump cited statistics provided to him by law enforcement agencies to further his point about this being a national emergency.
266k arrests of illegal aliens with criminal record
100k assaults on Americans
30k sex crimes
4,000 violent murders
33% of women sexually assaulted illegally traveling through Mexico

During his address, Trump informed Americans he would be meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer this afternoon to seek funding for the border wall.
Trump was again disappointed by the outcome of this meeting, and called it “a total waste of time.” He tweeted out his disappointment and said he told the House Majority Leader “bye-bye” after she refused to include funding for the wall.
Just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy, a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in 30 days if I quickly open things up, are you going to approve Border Security which includes a Wall or Steel Barrier? Nancy said, NO. I said bye-bye, nothing else works!
