The Fox host also pushed back on Trump's claim that the number of illegal border crossings is on the rise, telling viewers that they have actually been going "steadily down over the past 10 years", and that the government reports "there is more outward traffic than inward traffic".

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) pose for photographs after delivering a televised response to President Donald Trump's national address about border security at the U.S. Capitol January 08, 2019 in Washington, DC.

This latest government shutdown, the second-longest in the nation's history, occurred when talks broke down between congressional leaders and the White House over a spending deal.

While the address may not change anyone's mind, there are very strong feelings both for and against the television networks' decisions to televise it in the first place.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says the group had a "robust exchange" and 'questions were asked and answered'. "Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security", he said.
