“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,” Breitbart News wrote on Monday evening.

It is likely that MSNBC will also skip the address as it has for many of the president’s other public addresses.

On Monday, the White House reported that the president planned to address the nation about the situation on the border.

Trump also tweeted out a notice about his plans:

This isn’t exactly a lone snub to Trump.

Back in 2014, the networks did not air one of Obama’s speeches.

Glenn Kessler noted this fact on Twitter:

Of course, a main difference is that in the case in 2014, the Obama White House did not request the air time and left it up to the networks.

By the end of the day on Monday, at least one of the big three said they would carry it.

According to Michael Calderone, CBS is set to air the speech.

Calderone added that Fox News, Fox Business, and CNN would also air the address.
