United States Capitol Police have once again installed a security fence around the Capitol building ahead of Joe Biden’s State of the Union address before Congress on Tuesday at the request of the Secret Service.
News of the security fencing’s return was revealed by Politico reporter Nicholas Wu, who tweeted a photo of the fence with the caption “Looks like the Capitol fence is coming back ahead of the State of the Union.”
“At the request of the United States Secret Service, the Architect of the Capitol will erect a fence around the United States Capitol for the State of the Union Address,” said Acting House Sergeant at Arms William McFarland, who added that the security fencing will be removed on Wednesday after the President’s speech.
45th President Donald Trump took the lead over Biden just one night before the current occupant of the Oval Office plans to deliver his annual SOTU speech, Valiant News reported.

Additionally, only one percent of survey respondents said they would vote for “someone else,” three percent said they would not vote for either candidate, two percent said they would not vote, and one percent had “no opinion.”
The results of the poll highlight a five-point increase in support for Trump since the legacy media outlets’ most recent survey in September, which showed Biden leading Trump by two points at 48 percent to 46 percent.
Some have suggested that Trump may have gained more favor among voters in recent days as the poll was conducted late January through early February, prior to the Biden administration’s Chinese spy balloon controversy, which saw the administration allowing a Chinese surveillance device to float across most of the continental U.S. before Biden ordered it be shot down over the Atlantic Ocean.
