President Obama is listening to Donald Trump, sort of. He’s going to “build a wall.” While that’s the saying that many Trump supporters utter, it’s weird when it comes from the soon-to-be former President Barack Obama.
According to TMZ, the Obama’s are building a wall around their Washington, DC mansion to keep unwelcome guests off their property for when they leave office.
If we learned anything from the numerous White House fence jumpers over the course of Obama’s presidency, the President is going to need a heck of a lot of Secret Service detail on his property too.
Over the course of the 2016 presidential election, Obama continuously mocked then-Republican nominee Donald Trump for his campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border.
In his final speech delivered to the UN General Assembly, Obama said, “Today, a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself.”
Now, a rental home in our nation’s capitol ringed by walls would only imprison itself.
Or either that, he’s doing it to keep bad people out and keep his family safe — just the reason Trump wants a wall on the southern border. I know people say this sarcastically, but this time I genuinely mean it with respect to this development, “Thanks, Obama.”
