Obama has gleefully joined the anti-Trump bandwagon over the president’s plans to build a wall between us and Mexico.
Obama was hoping no one would remember that he made similar promises during his presidential campaign.
Back in 2006, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer ALL threw their support behind the Secure Fence Act.
A young junior senator at the time, Obama argued: “The bill before us will certainly do some good. Better fences and better security along our borders [will] help stem some of the tide of illegal immigration in this country.”
Hillary was touting her pro-wall position all the way up until 2015: “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in… and I do think that you have to control your borders.”
It was only after Trump began saying he’d build a wall that everyone suddenly found the idea reprehensible.
Well, now Trump is having the last laugh.
