President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to call out President Obama’s hypocrisy over a border wall.
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.
“I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!” he added.
Trump was referring to the large barrier the Obamas erected around the Northwest D.C. house they purchased after leaving the White House.
In May 2017, crews completed the brick and metal wall surrounding his home in the tony Kalorama neighborhood.

They began in around Trump’s inauguration:
Obama’s DC home isn’t the only one protected by walls.
The former president’s Chicago neighbors are begging Chicago leaders to take down the barriers that have been blocking their street, even though he is no longer in office.
DNA Info reported in February 2017:
Leaders at KAM Isaiah Israel, the synagogue across the street from Barack Obama’s Chicago home, say the heavily secured block in Kenwood should be reopened to the public.
Interim Executive Director Debra Hammond said Monday the synagogue at 1100 E. Hyde Park Blvd. wants the gates and barricades that block Greenwood Avenue at Hyde Park Boulevard removed to send a message of openness and inclusivity.
“If we could have it the way we wanted it, it would be open at Hyde Park Boulevard,” Hammond told DNAinfo. “We want to be more of a place of sanctuary.”
Photos show the neighborhood is still very much fortified, despite Obama’s public opposition to walls:

“Walls for me, but not for thee,” should be Obama’s motto.
The recent movie, “Dummycrats,” highlighted the hypocrisy of Obama, the Clintons and Nancy Pelosi:
