There is U.S government shutdown over funding of President Trump proposed border wall. While trying to win support for his so-called border wall, Trump decided to take to tweeter to lie to the Americans again. He tweeted that former President Barack Obama has a “ten foot Wall” surrounding his home in Washington, D.C. This is a blatant lie because such imaginary fence does not exist.
About 2 months ago, Fmr President Obama urged Republicans to stop telling lies. Trump’s lie was uncovered by Washington Post who reported that Trump completely made up this assertion. According to one Obama’s neighbors who spoke with the Post: “There’s a fence that goes along the front of the house, but it’s the same as the other neighbors have. It’s tastefully done.” “There is no 10-foot wall in the front, back or sides of the house.” The house is 100 percent visible from the street as can be seen in the photo which has since gone viral.
In his tweet, Trump wrote: “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!” Also, Obama’s mansion is definitely not a compound, as Trump alleged. When will President Trump stop lying to the Americans?
The post further reported that Trump has made 1,130 false and misleading claims about immigration since he took office as the President of the United States. Trump has also made 768 false or misleading claims about the U.S economy since he took office. Trump has also made 822 false or misleading claims about trade since he took office. Trump has also made 438 false or misleading claims about the U.S taxes since he took office. Trump has also made 600 false or misleading claims about the Russia investigation since he took office. According to the Post, in total, Trump has an average of 10.8 false or misleading claims per day since taking office.
