Two neighbors in remarks to The Washington Post disputed Trump's characterization.

“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," one neighbor, who was kept anonymous, told the newspaper.

Another neighbor also told the Post that the home is completely visible from the street.

“There is no 10-foot wall in the front, back or sides of the house — and no wall is going up,” the neighbor said.

Trump on Sunday wrote in a tweet that a "wall" around the Obamas' home is the "same thing" that the U.S. needs on its southern border.

"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!" he tweeted.

TMZ reported in 2017 that the Obamas were adding security to their home and identified a structure that was built as a "wall." 

Trump has long demanded that a wall be built along the border with Mexico. His refusal to sign a spending bill that doesn't include $5 billion in funding for that wall prompted the current partial government shutdown.
