"Just because you say it's a crisis doesn't necessarily make it one", ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega said following the president's address.

Wallace, prior to her journalism career, served as White House communications director during the George W. Bush administration.

Donald Trump's first presidential address from the Oval Office was more of the same rhetoric about building the wall, which is the focal point of the now 18-day government shutdown.

"For those who refuse to compromise in the name of in the name of border security, I would ask, imagine if it was your child, your husband or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken", Trump said.

"The president made no news and no new proposals", he said.

This issue is reflective of all the ongoing arguments about Trump and the media.

Democrats in response accused Trump appealing to "fear, not facts" and manufacturing a border crisis for political gain. But the New York Democrat said the "symbol of America should be the Statue of Liberty, not a 30-foot wall".

"He talked about undocumented crossings over the past months; in fact the number of undocumented crossings over the southern border has been steadily down over the last 10 years and the government reports that there is more outward traffic than inward traffic".

"They hope that'll hurt [Trump] in 2020", he said.
