Fences are being built around the White House following protests by people seeking justice for George Floyd and calling for an end to police brutality in the United States of America.
As the protests intensified and demonstrators packed themselves outside the White House, US President Donald Trump reportedly hid in a bunker in the White House. He later claimed he was “inspecting” the bunker, not hiding.
Now, walls are being built around the White House. Photos and videos shared online show tall black walls going up.
There is already a fence surrounding the White House and it’s hard to get into it. However, an extra fence is now going up.
Americans took to Twitter to mock their president for’ hiding himself behind a fence.”
Watch the videos below.

Are we putting up the fence to keep people out or in? Asking for a friend. There are two sides to every fence. Betsy Klein on Twitter: "More fencing going up around the White House complex early this morning pic.twitter.com/D36BivgFss" / Twitter https://t.co/Gt2MXOFMbw

A tall black fence was set up around Lafayette Square in front of the White House overnight. It’s probably about eight feet tall. pic.twitter.com/LIlfCeAicH
