Guided by considerations of privacy and security of the US President Donald trump considered that the old six-metre fence is no longer enough. So instead you need to build a new, “more serious”.
The project of construction of the fence around the White house, already approved by the government, involves the construction of a wall with a height of 13 feet. It will be equipped with modern security systems. Details of American law enforcement, of course, not disclosed.

According to the plan, the construction of the fence will continue until 2021. And the cost of the new fence – $ 64 million.
The idea of replacing the fence arose in 2017 because around the White house too often crowd the photographing tourists who disturb the local inhabitants.
