On Sunday, President Trump slammed the Obama’s for their hypocrisy on the southern border wall and it was awesome!
“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound,” he said.
“I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security,” he wrote.
“The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!” he said.

The Daily Mail reported on the Obama wall.
It’s unclear how tall the wall is around the Obama home and it’s not all brick – it’s a combination of brick columns and steel pillars.
The 8,200-square-foot home is blocked off to the public by concrete barriers, which are manned 24-7 by Secret Service officers.
Trump would be familiar with the home as his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner near live the Obamas – although their home has no wall.
The Obamas originally rented the 9 bedroom home but last June paid $8.1 million for it. They moved in after they left the White House in January 2017.
The Obamas said would stay in Washington while their youngest daughter, Sasha, completes high school at Sidwell Friends School, where she is in her junior year.
Other high-profile residents live in the neighborhood, including former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Amazon founder and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos.
Trump has been pushing for his border wall amid an argument with Democrats over funding for it.
