In an email to Lead Stories on January 14, 2022, Katie Liming, a public affairs specialist for the National Park Service, did not say there was any political motivation behind the White House construction. She told us:
There is a normal maintenance construction project happening at the North Fountain in front of the White House.
Lead Stories previously fact-checked a claim stating that several federal buildings including the White House were abandoned on June 14, 2021. That fact check is here.
