In a befuddling Instagram Story post on Tuesday, the President’s eldest son attempted to explain why “walls work” by drawing a comparison between caged zoo animals and … immigrants?
“You know why you can enjoy a day at the zoo? Because walls work,” he said in an Instagram Story that has since disappeared.
While it seemed that Trump Jr. was attempting to draw a parallel between the proposed border wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and the cages that house zoo animals, a spokesperson for the first son told The Hill that Trump Jr. only meant to indicate “walls equal safety.”
