Extraordinary security measures taken around the White House in the USA due to elections
Extraordinary security measures have been taken in the capital Washington DC and around the White House due to the street events that may occur after the 59th presidential elections held in the USA today.
In the USA, after the 59th presidential elections, if one of the parties does not accept the results, the possibility of street and violence incidents started to be discussed.
Workplaces looted during the George Floyd demonstrations in Washington DC in May and June were covered with wooden plates in case of post-election events.
On the other hand, many avenues and streets around the White House, as well as Lafayette Park opposite the White House and Ellipse Park behind it, were closed to the entrance and exit.
In addition, high iron fences were placed around all buildings and streets around the White House.
