Naturally, the president's address was also met with criticism from Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, who accused him of trying to "stoke fear" - so, you know Trump's boiling over the fact that he was skewered just as badly by his favorite ass-kissing network.

There is widespread agreement that anchors and reporters will be under pressure to fact-check and contextualize whatever Trump says.

"It's like the patient zero of fake news", Wallace added.

The speech was carried by ABC, CBS, Fox Broadcasting, NBC, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC on Tuesday night. Wallace replied that it would but this would not be enough because the Democrats still won the House in the midterms with the border wall being Trump's main issue.

Immediately following Trump's approximately 10 minute speech, Smith broke down a "number of claims" that were deliberately misleading.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says the group had a "robust exchange" and 'questions were asked and answered'.

During an off-the-record lunch on Tuesday, Trump said that it was not his idea to deliver the speech or visit the southern border, two sources briefed on the meeting told the New York Times.

The late-night funnyman also took aim at the official Democratic response from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, which was widely mocked for their wooden delivery and freaky staging, with the pair squished together behind one podium. "The networks gave the White House exactly what the president wanted: unhindered access to lie to their audience". Among the key demo of adults age 25-54, Fox News averaged 1.8 million, compared to 1.4 million demo viewers for CNN while MSNBC failed to crack the 1 million viewer plateau.

And yet this time around, all the major networks said they'd provide coverage of the speech.
