So our suggestion is a simple one: Mr. President: re-open the government and we can work to resolve our differences over border security.
All the major TV networks, and some cable ones, have now chose to televise a Tuesday address by Donald Trump concerning border security and "the wall".
Mr Trump is backed by most of his party, though on Tuesday moderate Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska joined Democrats in calling for an end to the shutdown before the border wall issue was resolved. That's because the federal government has been partially shutdown for over two weeks.
Pelosi and Schumer say in the statement that Trump has "the power to stop hurting the country" by ending the shutdown. "A very interesting experience!" "The president should be really defending why we are funding [ICE] at all", Ocasio-Cortez told liberal heavyweight Rachel Maddow.
Just an hour before, Trump visited Capitol Hill, where he insisted that Republicans were united in their support for his position that Congressional appropriations should include border wall funding.
He left no room for a compromise on the demand for wall barrier beyond saying that he would agree to a steel fence instead of a wall.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Mrs Pelosi said the mood in the White House was "cold".
He addressed the nation as the shutdown stretched through its third week, with hundreds of thousands of federal workers going without pay.
Vice President Mike Pence and Republican leaders challenged some of Schumer's version of events, denying that Trump also slammed his hand on a table or raised his voice.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer found themselves the butt of numerous jokes online after they delivered their joint response to US President Donald Trump's Tuesday address. "This is a completely contrived and phony crisis as far as I am concerned because we solve problems like this everyday, working out and negotiating outcomes. It's ridiculous", said Senator Angus King, a ME independent who caucuses with Democrats. "It's also what our professionals at the border want and need", he said.
This is the nonpartisan energy we need in 2019! "I think that's really the solution".
She noted that the House passed legislation to reopen government on the first day of the new Congress.
"They don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside".
"More Americans will die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War", he said. "This is a humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul".
"Government statistics show much of the heroin actually comes not over the unguarded border but through ports of call", he said. "Our southern border is a vast pipeline for illegal drugs including meth, heroine, cocaine and fentanyl".
In his first TV address from the Oval Office, the president made a case for building a wall along the Mexico border.
"He will never see his son walk", said Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson , whose agency is leading the investigation. Surveillance photos of the suspect wanted for shooting and killing a police officer during a traffic stop in Newman, Calif.
But, with political opposition and public support possibly waning, the path ahead to making it a reality looks bumpier than ever. The House and the Senate convened for just minutes on Thursday before gaveling closed until next week.

Susan Collins, R-Maine, who said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should take up bills from the Democratic-led House. Despite this consideration, however, Trump said he would much prefer to go through the congressional negotiations process.
If she did step down, President Donald Trump would have another opportunity to move a conservative court even more to the right. Ginsburg is one of the four liberal members of the Supreme Court, and is somewhat of an icon among progressives.
