D.C businesses board up ahead of election, 'non-scalable' fence around White House:
D.C. business owners are boarding up buildings ahead of potential protests over the election, and the White House is expected to put up a “non-scalable” fence, according to CNN.
The fence reportedly will be made of the same lengthy metal material used during protests in the summer, and will stretch around the Ellipse and Lafayette Square.
