Here are the facts from wikipedia

Construction of the White House began with the laying of the cornerstone on October 13, 1792, although there was no formal ceremony.[11] The main residence, as well as foundations of the house, were built largely by enslaved and free African-American laborers, as well as employed Europeans.

[12] Much of the other work on the house was performed by immigrants, many not yet with citizenship. The sandstone walls were erected by Scottish immigrants, employed by Hoban,[13] as were the high relief rose and garland decorations above the north entrance and the "fish scale" pattern beneath the pediments of the window hoods. The initial construction took place over a period of eight years, at a reported cost of $232,371.83 (equal to $3,182,127 today). Although not yet completed, the White House was ready for occupancy on or circa November 1, 1800.[14]
Shortages, including material and labor, forced alterations to the earlier plan developed by French engineer Pierre Charles L'Enfant for a "palace" that was five times larger than the house that was eventually built.[13] The finished structure contained only two main floors instead of the planned three, and a less costly brick served as a lining for the stone fa├žades. When construction was finished the porous sandstone walls were coated with a mixture of lime, rice glue, casein, and lead, giving the house its familiar color and name.[13]
As it is a famed structure in America, many replicas of the White House have been constructed.

The wikipedia article says "largely by enslaved and free African-American laborers, as well as employed Europeans."

Mmmm, anony 8:44, both statements are true. Yet, Jim is a liar?

Comprehension problems, eh.
