Mystery surrounds the reason why the North Lawn at the White House has been dug up less than a week after the election.
A digger was seen at the world-famous address after a large portion of grass was removed from the garden on Monday. Newsweek has contacted the White House for a comment about the North Lawn.
The North Lawn, which is also known as the front lawn because of its location on Pennsylvania Avenue, is often seen on television when dignitaries arrive to meet the president.
CNN reporter Betsy Klein shared a picture of the site on Twitter and wrote: “Sometime between 5.30 a.m. and now the White House North Lawn was dug up.”
