Donald Trump spent his entire presidential campaign promising his supporters that he would build a wall along the southern U.S. border and that Mexico would be the one paying for it.
Over time, the narrative changed. He would claim that Congress would be the one funding the wall and that it will definitely get built. Eventually, Trump’s failure to build a wall led to the longest government shutdown in history.
Trump decided to blame just about every Democrat for his failures. But we all know he had control of the House, the Senate, and the White House and didn’t get his wall built.
So on Tuesday, Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., took to Twitter to blame someone else for the wall not getting built.
Trump Jr. blamed former Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan but his attempt to defend his dad backfired.
Trump Jr. tweeted:
“Pretty rich. Mitt Romney’s failed 2012 running mate, the speaker who lied to us and didn’t deliver Wall funding (and then lost the house) gives advice on winning.”

Here’s how Twitter responded:
LOL, your daddy lost The House. He handled it like he did his marriage to your mom, making casinos prosper & owning a football team. Hell, you even used to hate him back in the day. Is that where all the anger comes from??

Trump lost the House by a margin of 10,000,000 million votes.
Ryan wasn't even running.

Fairly sure you’re in no position to brag about winning, when your family’s deeply embroiled in corruption, affairs, hush money, collusion, bribery, lies, and criminal activity that could see you all locked up.

Like the man who filed for bankruptcy 4 times & who can’t make a good deal saying he’s the best dealmaker. Or the guy whose Cabinet has a new scandal every week saying he knows the best people. Or that guy’s son who was handed everything & who tweets all day criticizing others.
