White House construction project “normal maintenance” on the fountain

The White House says nothing extraordinary is being built on its land.

An explanation has been given after social media has been abuzz in recent days with images showing construction work on the North Lawn of President Joe Biden’s residence.

“There is a normal maintenance construction project underway at the North Fountain in front of the White House,” a White House official said.

Some on Twitter speculated that a concrete wall was being built, leading to comments about the irony of a wall being built by Democrats over pressure from former President Donald Trump for a wall along the US-Mexico border.

David Weigel, journalist at Washington Post who obtained the statement from the White House, said the speculative tweets came “mostly from conservatives asking if a temporary barrier on one side of the White House had been put in place in anticipation of the unrest.”
