Jeb Bush, a longtime opponent to President Donald Trump, roasted his former Republican primary rival on Twitter with three simple words over Trump's plans to built a wall along the entire U.S. -Mexico border.

On Jan. 25, Trump, delivering on his signature campaign pledge, signed an executive order that initiated the process of building the wall on the USA southern border with Mexico. "It won't stop anything - not drugs or migrants".

Leeser called for unity and pointed out that Juarez and El Paso are the same city and the same community.
