Trump Uses Obama's Own Home Against Him in Brilliant Border Wall Argument
To anyone with a sliver of logic rattling around in their brains, the importance of border security should be readily apparent.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that one of the biggest reasons President Donald Trump won the 2016 election is because border security was one of his biggest campaigning points.
Despite the fact that it’s so logical and clearly something many Americans want, leftists have long had some inexplicable problem with anything involving border security or a potential wall.
The liberal actor Peter Fonda was slammed as a “domestic terrorist” by the National Border Patrol Council for incendiary comments he made about the men and women who try to enforce border security.
Late night “comedian” Jimmy Kimmel basically equated Americans who supported border security to uneducated meth addicts.
The lunacy of the left truly knows no bounds. But amid the hysteria, Trump noticed something that leftists like Fonda, Kimmel and former President Barack Obama might have a hard time explaining.
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!

“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound,” Trump tweeted on Sunday. “I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!”
Say what you will about Trump, but his expertise when it comes to subtle trolling is undeniable.
From saying “I agree” with the Obama’s for their fence to his very deliberate use of the word “slightly,” this is a brilliant way for Trump to flip the script on leftists.
But trolling aside, Trump raises a point that many of these leftists and elitists will have a hard time explaining.
So many of them live in lavish mansions and gated communities and have the gall to attack Trump’s border wall? What, exactly, is the purpose of gates and walls for their homes? Security and safety, two of the biggest things Trump has argued for through his border walls.
To be clear, I’m not condemning leftists and elitists for having these walls. They can do what they want with their property, and if walls help them secure and protect their loved ones and belongings, more power to them.
I’m condemning their rank hypocrisy for not wanting that same level of security and protection for America as a whole.
Some elitists might argue that people like Obama or some leftist movie star is too famous and important to just allow to be in the open.
Guess what? No country is more famous or important than America. That’s exactly why this country needs border security.
