As America’s borders remain open, a wall-like construction project on the North Lawn at the White House captured a lot of attention this week.
The White House said the construction is regular maintenance on a fountain.
“There is a normal maintenance construction project happening at the North Fountain in front of the White House,” and official from the White House said.
ANOTHER wall is being built at the White House. Why? No explanation thus far but one thing is explicitly clear:
When Joe Biden builds a wall, it’s built to protect himself. When Trump built a wall, it was to protect America and YOU but Biden stopped border wall construction! pic.twitter.com/RvHex5lVhk

Bunch of tweets today, mostly from conservatives, asking if a temporary barrier on one side of the White House has been set up anticipating unrest.

“Some on Twitter speculated that a concrete wall was being constructed, leading to comments about the irony of a Democratic-built wall in relation to former President Donald Trump’s push for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border,” reports Washington Examiner.
David Weigel, a reporter with the Washington Post, said the tweets were “mostly from conservatives, asking if a temporary barrier on one side of the White House has been set up anticipating unrest.”
