Fencing is being installed near the White House, though its purpose is unclear

Fencing was seen being installed near the White House on Wednesday, though it is unclear what it's for specifically.

Asked about the fencing going up around the White House complex, a White House official would not address security issues, but said there’s “no concern the protests will step on the president’s message.”

President Donald Trump is set to deliver his nomination acceptance speech from the White House on Thursday night, the final night of the Republican National Convention. A fireworks display over the National Mall is planned as well, which reportedly could also draw protesters, and a rally to commemorate the 1963 march on Washington is scheduled for Friday.

1. Trump promised us the wall and he is building it.

What's unclear about that?
There is his wall, right around the White House.

8. I guess they'll start on the moat next week, then stock it with pirhanas and alligators!

I love to see flop sweat and fear in the morning!

9. His big speech is supposed to be staged on the WH lawn, right?

They're setting up an outer perimeter. If they can't stop protesters entirely, they can at least keep them far away enough that chants (and tear gas and screams) won't carry over to the stage.

13. They're just being proactive.

This way, when Il Douche refuses to vacate on January 20, they can just switch the padlocks to be on the OUTSIDE of the fences.
