WASHINGTON (AP) — The $4,500,000 door in the Oval Office that was torn down in a presidential photo in January is being replaced by a $1,000,000 wall.
White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday that the new door is “almost done” and that it will be installed in front the Oval office in April.
The new door was built in 2002 and is in a wood-covered courtyard, Carney said.
It has a wood frame and a plastic cover that was made to withstand the winter storm.
The wall is expected to be completed in time for the president’s swearing-in ceremony April 20.
