Don’t tell Trump, but the Democrats’ rebuttal got higher ratings than his speech

Jan 09, 2019 - Fast Company

American viewers seemed to be more interested in the Democrats’ response than what President Trump actually had to say.

Last night, U.S. President Donald Trump took to the national airwaves in an attempt to defend his decision to shut down the government in order to get funding for a Mexican border wall. All the major news outlets aired his speech, as well as a rebuttal directly afterward from Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
