Protesters rally outside White House on 18th day of shutdown

Protesters rallied outside the White House Tuesday night as Trump appeared on television, demanding funding for a wall to end what he called a 'border crisis'.

Trump fueled fears of illegal immigration during the Oval Office address, citing a 'humanitarian crisis' and a pressing need for $5 billion to construct a border wall. Democrats, who recently took control of the House of Representatives - are adamantly opposed to giving him the funds.

The government shutdown is going into its 19th day, making it one of the longest in modern history.
