Trump said on Twitter he would also address the 'humanitarian crisis' on the southern border at 3 p.m. live from the White House.
I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 18, 2019
