The promise of a wall at the southern border may have been a pillar of then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign in 2016, but four years later, it's a much different wall that's materialized by the end of President Donald Trump's first term.

Intimidated by the days of protests mounting outside the White House in response to the murder of George Floyd by police, a fence has been erected around the entire perimeter of the already gated White House.

Have you seen the pictures?

To many Twitter users, the fencing presented a striking image embodying Trump's refusal to comply with traditional oversight and the obfuscations of truth from the American people.

Rick Wilson—one of the former Republicans who founded the anti-Trump PAC The Lincoln Project—urged his Twitter followers to come up with a name for the new obstruction.

They didn't disappoint.

Fortunately, some of the protestors that spurred the fence's creation are now using it to amplify their outrage.

Nearly two miles of fencing has been built outside the White House. That's more than half of the new fencing that's been built at the southern border.

It seems the house's nickname—The People's House—is suspended for the time being.
