Donald Trump Jr. likens border wall to zoo enclosures

January 9, 2019

Donald Trump Jr. defended his father’s border wall by comparing it to zoo fences on Instagram Tuesday night.

“You know why you can enjoy a day at the zoo?” He wrote on his Instagram story. “Because walls work.”

The post came soon after President Trump made a direct appeal to the American public about the need for a border wall Tuesday and declared the immigration issue at the border constitutes a crisis.

The president’s son has faced controversy from other analogies he’s made to defend his father’s policies. In September 2016, he likened Syrian refugees to a bowl of potentially lethal skittles.
