Donald Trump said that all living ex-presidents told him that they supported his idea for the border wall with Mexico. Problem: they never did.

A lie told by Donald Trump has made it possible for all living former American presidents to unite and call him out.

In a rare bipartisan move, three former Democratic presidents -- Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter -- and one Republican, George W. Bush, have issued statements denying Trump's claim that they all regret not erecting a giant wall across the border while they were in the White House.

The current POTUS is at war with Democrats who are blocking funding for his $5.6 billion border wall.

Determined to keep his supporters happy; Trump has been making the media rounds bashing the other side for their refusal to cave in and accept his demands.

During one of his many interviews,  the former reality TV star turned politician had this to say about the U.S. Mexico border wall: "This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me. And they all know it. Some of them have told me that we should have done it."

Mr. Carter was the last former living president to issue a statement vehemently denying ever talking about the construction of a wall with Mr. Trump.

Eric Shultz, the spokesman for former President Obama referenced past comments where the Hawaiian-born politician slammed the idea of building such wall.

Obama stated: 'Suggesting that we can build an endless wall along our borders, and blame our challenges on immigrants - that doesn't just run counter to our history as the world's melting pot; it contradicts the evidence that our growth and our innovation and our dynamism has always been spurred by our ability to attract strivers from every corner of the globe,' Obama said at Rutgers University in 2016. 'That's how we became America. Why would we want to stop it now?"

Mr. Bush's spokesman, Freddy Ford, spoke to Politico and explained that the former president never addressed the topic with Trump.

Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña had this to say: "He did not. In fact, they've not talked since the inauguration."

How should the media handle Mr. Trump's falsehoods?
