White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration hopes to remove temporary fencing around the White House campus when it makes sense from a security standpoint.
“Our goal, the President and the vice president’s goal, is for the Secret Service to adjust the perimeter as soon as it makes sense from an overall security standpoint,” Psaki said during Monday’s press briefing. “So, we’re working closely with them on that and they, of course, would be in the lead on that.”
Psaki was previously asked on Friday whether President Biden would order the removal of the temporary fencing — which has prevented visitors and tourists from coming near the White House.
She said at the time, “Well, I think we’d all like that, including members of my family and people in Washington.”
