As the world commemorates the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, a four-year-old tweet from a top Trump official has resurfaced.
Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs for the U.S. Department of the Treasury Monica Crowley sent a tweets in October of 2015. At the time, she was a FoxNews contributor, which explains some of the cluelessness.

A cornerstone of Trump’s campaign, the wall proposal has stirred up opposition and support in more or less equal measure.
This was a not-so-subtle message of support for then presidential candidate Trump’s plan to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Crowley responded to criticism of her (dumb) tweet by saying she believed everyone had “missed the point.”An active supporter of Trump, Crowley has previously said that it “doesn’t serve (U.S.) national interests to have this continuing swarm of illegal aliens.”
Crowley’s followup tweet tried to clarify her tweet, as though we didn’t get the message of her standing in front of A WALL.
For the record, Wikipedia tell us,
After several weeks of civil unrest, the East German government announced on 9 November 1989 that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin. Crowds of East Germans crossed and climbed onto the Wall, joined by West Germans on the other side in a celebratory atmosphere.
Over the next few weeks, euphoric people and souvenir hunters chipped away parts of the Wall.The Brandenburg Gate in the Berlin Wall was opened on 22 December 1989. The demolition of the Wall officially began on 13 June 1990 and was completed in November 1991.
The “fall of the Berlin Wall” paved the way for German reunification, which formally took place on 3 October 1990.
For those of you who have missed the point, this is what remains of the Berlin Wall. pic.twitter.com/XwGZLfSQeT— Monica Crowley (@MonicaCrowley) October 5, 2015
