Donald Trump has spent most of his fraudulent presidency revealing in one instance after another that he’s insanely jealous of former President Barack Obama. Now Trump is trying to use Obama’s home to promote his border wall.
Running out of crazy ideas, Trump on Sunday referenced reports of a privacy “wall” built around President Obama’s Washington, D.C., home to justify the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, as he continues to push for funding the structure amid a partial government shutdown.
Trump tweeted that the brick structure reportedly put up last year along the Obamas’ Kalorama home was “totally necessary for their safety and security.”
“The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!” Trump tweeted.
Trump has demanded $5 billion for wall funding and previously said he’d be “proud” to shut down the government over the money, while Democrats have refused to offer more than $1.3 billion for border security measures.
The budget impasse has spurred the current partial government shutdown. Parts of the government have been closed for nine days and counting.
You can read Trump’s tweet and post your response in the comments section below:
President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!

As expected, Twitter had to respond:
Don't worry, you will soon have FOUR walls (and bars) surrounding you.

Someone should put a 10 foot wall between you and your phone.

Not the kind of statement one would expect from a stable genius.

You still have to get Mexico to pay for it like you promised, big guy. That or cough up the money yourself. Why should the country have to suffer because of your failures?
