    US President Donald Trump has long promised to build a barrier wall along the border between the United States and Mexico. Amid the mass nationwide protests following the killing of George Floyd, Americans are getting yet another wall - one surrounding “The People's House."

    Fence Fixation

    They say when all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail...

    Trump has long promised that Mexico would pay for his border wall, and with fencing now having gone up around the White House, there is yet another wall being built by the POTUS which is not being paid for by Mexico, but by American taxpayers.

    Tall, metal fencing, along with concrete barriers, appeared along 17th Street in the US capital, extending around the White House and the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Thursday as protests against police violence following Floyd’s death continued for the second week. 
    It seems the fencing has gone up because the White House has been such a major attraction for protest activity. Aw, suddenly The Donald is camera-shy?
