In a surprising turn of events, President Joe Biden has taken a page out of former President Trump’s playbook and embarked on the construction of a wall. However, this time it’s not along the Mexican American border, but rather around his beloved vacation spot in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The purpose? To ensure the president’s safety and privacy during his time away from the White House.
Captivating images of Biden’s exclusive beach house reveal the ongoing efforts of workers as they diligently build a wall to separate his property from that of his neighbors. Understandably, the neighbors are livid, as they feel betrayed by Biden’s decision to erect this wall while neglecting to continue the work on securing Donald Trump’s controversial legacy wall along the southern border.
Biden’s security wall features elegant stone pillars interspersed with pristine white fencing. This project, which has been in the pipeline for quite some time, is finally nearing completion, aiming to safeguard the president’s privacy as he enjoys his leisurely stays along the picturesque Delaware shore.
Rumors abound that Biden is allocating nearly half a million dollars for the construction of this wall around his Rehoboth Beach residence. Exclusive photographs of the wall were initially obtained by the Daily Mail and have since circulated widely across the internet.
Unsurprisingly, Republicans are incensed by Biden’s dedication to protecting his privacy, especially considering his opposition to Trump’s border wall.
“So, walls work at Joe Biden’s beach house, but not along the southern border?” tweeted Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan, expressing his bewildering support for the former president, who was unceremoniously ousted from the White House after just one term.
Interestingly, plans for the privacy screen at Biden’s beach house were set in motion back in 2021 when the Department of Homeland Security awarded a contract to a reputable building company. The aim was to erect additional fencing to ensure the president’s safety during his infrequent visits to the Delaware shore.
As a government contract, the taxpayers are ultimately footing the bill for Biden’s security fencing. Initially estimated at $490,324 for the “purchase and installation of security fencing” at President Joe Biden’s Rehoboth Beach residence, the cost has unfortunately increased by approximately $34,000 due to inflation. While the exact reasons for this price hike remain unclear, it is evident that the American taxpayers are contributing more funds to build the wall that will protect Biden’s security and privacy during his beach visits.
The construction of Biden’s security wall is anticipated to continue throughout 2023, with completion expected by September of that year. Unfortunately, this means that the president will miss out on enjoying the summer vacation season at the beach due to ongoing construction.
Surprisingly, many locals are thrilled that Biden frequents their beach town and remain unperturbed by the construction of his privacy screen.
Jenn Stone, a resident of Delaware, expressed her thoughts to NBC News, saying, “Not everyone has the best intentions. If he wants to ensure the safety of himself and his family, he absolutely has the right to do so.”
