Even if President Donald Trump is impeached, he'll come out as a victor, White House Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp said Monday.

UPDATE (1:50 p.m. Eastern): President Trump tweeted that he will address the nation live on TV at 9 p.m.

According to The Hill, CNN and Fox News Channel are planning to air Trump's address on border security, while the basic cable networks CBS, NBC, and ABC have not committed one way or the other. Newly empowered House Democrats plan to step up pressure on Trump and Republican lawmakers to reopen the government.

Outside linebackers/Vipers coach Al Washington is also rumored to be a target of the Buckeyes under new head coach Ryan Day. Former Ohio State defensive assistant Alex Grinch left the Buckeyes to become the defensive coordinator at Oklahoma.

Schlapp also discussed the ongoing partial government shutdown, now in its third week, noting that the Trump administration has provided Democrats with a list they requested showing the needs of the border patrol.

Last week the president told reporters he is considering declaring a national emergency to fund a border wall. Trump framed the pitch for a steel wall as a concession to Democrats to move negotiations along, although they do not appear moved by the president's message. "Instead, he is still demanding that American taxpayers pay at least $5.7 billion for his wall, which can't pass either chamber of Congress and of course Mexico is not paying for".
