Earlier, US President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office, describing the situation at the United States' southern border as a "humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul". "We can protect the border using the technology that's available to us to wall off intrusions by using that technology", the South Carolina Democrat said on CNN.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Trump slammed his hand on the table and walked out.

President Trump hastened to Capitol Hill Wednesday trying to hold jittery congressional Republicans in line on the 19th day of the partial government shutdown. "I think the votes are there if everyone decides to do this - to not only pass these bills but to be able to override a [potential presidential] veto". We can reopen the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy.

"I think certainly I have expressed more than a few times the frustrations with a government shutdown and how useless it is", Capito said Tuesday. "If you don't have the wall, it doesn't matter".

Trump and Democrats remain at an impasse over border wall funding, with Trump so far refusing to agree to a spending bill that does not include border wall funding and Democrats refusing to support legislation that does fund a border wall. His Tuesday evening remarks were to be followed by a televised rebuttal from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who strongly oppose the wall and have repeatedly called on Trump to reopen shuttered portions of the government while border negotiations continue.
