CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) – President Trump is still not backing down on his requests for the border wall. Last night, he spoke directly to the American people with a national address.

Trump stated that Democrats can end the partial government shutdown if they see to his demand on border funding.

Senate Democrat leader, Chuck Schumer, responded calling on the president to separate the shutdown from the arguments over border security.

Gibbs Knotts of the College of Charleston joined us to go into more detail about the address.
