President Donald Trump is about to see a new wall go up — but it's not the controversial 10-foot barrier he's planned for the U.S.-Mexico border.

Instead, a barrier is being planned at Palm Beach International Airport to shield Air Force One, the presidential jet used by Trump when he flies to Florida to visit his Mar-a-Lago Club, The Palm Beach Post reports.

On past occasions, a temporary barrier line of yellow school buses has been used to shield the presidential plane.

"You get a request from the Secret Service, 'Can you screen this area off?' and you react as quickly as you can," Jerry Allen, deputy director of planning and development for Palm Beach County's airports department, told the newspaper.

Earlier this year, a helicopter landing pad was built at Mar-a-Lago — dubbed "The Winter White House" — to facilitate Marine One, a custom-built Marine Corps chopper which transports the commander in chief.
