President Donald Trump may no longer be hunkering down in a bunker, but he does seem to be building a lot more fencing around the White House.
CNN reporter Betsy Klein on Thursday posted a video showing a massive amount of new fencing being built at the White House, which is part of an effort to limit anti-police brutality protesters’ ability to demonstrate directly in front of the building.

Klein’s video of fence construction at the White House set off howls of laughter, as many Twitter users noted the irony of the man whose top campaign promise was building a U.S.-Mexico border wall now being forced to build a wall around himself.
Check out some reactions below.

Thanks to Trump, the “People’s House” has become a gated community.

I’m betting Mexico might actually pay for THIS wall.

A moat with Alligators. That's what he wanted on the US-Mexico border. Seriously.

He could just go back in the bunker if he's that scared
