President Trump is poised to deliver his first prime-time address from the Oval Office since his inauguration Tuesday evening; speaking directly to the American people about the ongoing government shutdown and the nation’s security along the US-Mexico border.

The address comes as the second-longest government shutdown in America’s history enters its third week, with both Democrats and Republicans digging-in on President’s signature campaign promise: a physical barrier along the United States’ southern border.

President Trump summoned congressional Republicans to the White House Thursday afternoon; throwing a major “roadblock” in their efforts to pass a “stopgap” budget deal that doesn’t include funding for his border wall.

“A potential deal on Capitol Hill to avert a government shutdown with a short-term spending measure hit a roadblock Thursday as the White House said President Trump ‘does not want to go further’ with anything that does not include sought-after funding for border security,” writes Fox News.

“The president is having a meeting with Republican House members at noon today,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “At this moment, the president does not want to go further without border security, which includes steel slats or a wall. The president is continuing to weigh his options.”

Congress must pass a budget by Friday evening or the government will immediately “shutdown” until an agreement could be reached.
