Tuesday night, President Donald Trump will make use of an age-old tool that is rarely seen nowadays when he delivers a prime time address at 9 pm ET to discuss the need for a border wall
Ronald Reagan regularly made use of that technique as a candidate and as President, and Trump will take a page out of his playbook, using the effective broadcast to reach those who closely support him
The significance and timing of the address is needed, with the government shutdown approaching its 17th day.
Trump made the announcement via Twitter on Monday.
