Minions from former President Barack Obama’s administration have been all over the mainstream media, criticizing President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall across America’s southern border.
But Trump just pointed out the HUGE hypocrisy in Obama’s camp — and it silenced his critics.
Even better, the president only needed three words to do it.
Trump took to Twitter yesterday to point out that the Obamas constructed a 10-foot wall around their Washington, D.C. mansion — a move he agreed was important for their security.
Then, Trump asked why America couldn’t have a “slightly larger version” of the Obama wall to protect ALL citizens.
Game, set, match, Trump.

Part of the federal government remains shut down as Trump wrangles with Congressional Democrats over funding for the border wall.
But this isn’t the first time that Obama’s hypocrisy over building walls has been exposed.
Then-Senator Obama actually voted for the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which authorized the construction of 700 miles of fencing — as well as vehicle barriers — across the U.S.-Mexico border.
And here’s an interesting tidbit — New York Senator Chuck Schumer, who is currently holding up funding for Trump’s border wall, voted for it, too.
It’s just more proof that the opposition to Trump’s wall is about politics, and nothing more.
The same people who oppose it have supported walls in the past, when it suited their purposes.
And some of them, like Obama, are still protected by large walls every day.
