With a prime-time speech from the Oval Office Tuesday night, U.S. President Donald Trump made his case to build a wall at the U.S. border with Mexico, and addressed growing anxiety over the partial government shutdown resulting from his wall-funding fight with lawmakers. Democrats responded by urging the president to stop holding the American people hostage, and re-open the government. VOA White House Correspondent Patsy Widakuswara reports.
