Tomorrow is our last day as a nation to vote and it seems as though Donald Trump is finally erecting his wall — around the White House. It is growing increasingly clear that Trump isn’t planning to leave the White House. Despite all his boisterous claims about Biden hiding in a basement, there is a good chance that at some point during election night, he will vacate his election party and secure himself inside the White House bunker.
Trump alluded to this outcome back in September when he was famously asked if he would have a peaceful transition of power if he loses and his response was, “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful – there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation. The ballots are out of control. You know it. And you know who knows it better than anybody else? The Democrats know it better than anybody else.”
The vote is out of control, Trump claims, and now that the reality of his loss is upon him he is locking down the White House and surrounding it with armed guards. A federal law enforcement source told NBC last night that starting today, crews will build an unscalable fence to secure the White House complex and post 250 National Guardsmen on stand by. This comes on the heels of the announcement that Trump’s election party was moved from Trump International Hotel to the White House — could it be he was planning to hole up there all along?

Trump can bunker down and tweet out that our vote doesn’t count, he can threaten to use force to “put down an insurrection,” but he can’t stop us from voting him out tomorrow.
