President Trump’s Oval Office speech: Watch here

President Donald Trump made his case to the public for funding a wall along the country’s southern border in a live prime-time address tonight from the Oval Office.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., delivered a brief joint response afterward.

CBS prime-time programming for tonight was changed to air the president’s address. The episodes of “FBI” and “NCIS: New Orleans” originally scheduled to air tonight will move to next week at their regular time.
