Broadcast networks consider SNUBBING Trump's prime time address on the 'national humanitarian and security crisis' at the border and may give Democrats equal time to respond

President Donald Trump will address the nation Tuesday night in a prime time speech to address the ongoing government shutdown and his demands for a $5.7 billion border wall.

But the four broadcast networks were debating whether to give what amounts to free air time to the president, who on Monday unleashed another one of his attacks on the 'fake news' media.

CBS announced Monday night it would air the remarks and revealed the address would only be 8 minutes long. Cable networks CNN, Fox News and Fox Business News also confirmed they will air the president's speech.

It was not immediately clear whether the other broadcast networks would comply with the White House request to have them air the speech – which would provide some of the dramatic flair Trump is looking for with the event.
