Donald Trump‘s newest hotel in Washington, D.C. was tagged up by graffiti bandits who painted the slogan “Black Lives Matter” on a front-facing wall with other related slogans. The bold move occurred over the weekend, which was also the opening weekend of the Trump International Hotel.
Trump opponents have voiced their disdain for the mogul opening the hotel at one of the Nation Captial’s most iconic buildings in the Old Post Office Pavillion. Since the start of Trump’s presidential campaign, he has been dogged for building the hotel using the labor of the immigrants he seeks to oust from the country should he become president.
The tags on the hotel’s walls were captured by a Twitter user featuring the aforementioned slogan and “No Justice, Peace” on the other side of the hotel’s entrance. Police say that the vandalism took place in the late afternoon but that no witnesses have been named.
The Trump Hotel in D.C. has been a hotbed of controversy since the candidate came forward with divisive remarks about immigrants, prompting many partners who were going to lease space from the building to cut their losses and elected not to erect their businesses there. The hotel officially opened its doors on Saturday.
Hip-Hop Wired reached out to members of the Trump campaign for a response but no comments were recorded.
