Schumer and Pelosi accused Trump of trying to “stoke fear” with his Oval Office address, in which he continued his push for a border wall by calling the situation at the southern border a “humanitarian and security crisis.”

“Most presidents have used Oval Office addresses for noble purposes,” Schumer said. “This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.”
