Trump DC Hotel Marked With Black Lives Matter Graffiti - And It's Beautiful
Donald Trump's latest luxury hotel/tax haven was blessed with a new amenity late Saturday afternoon, when an intrepid vandal spray painted "Black Lives Matter" and "No Justice, No Peace" on either side of the entrance. The phrases, rendered in black spray paint, were covered up with plywood by Sunday afternoon, but Twitter user @AngryBlackMan was able to record the artist at work:
Donald Trump's new hotel in DC got tagged earlier today... #nojusticenopeace #blacklivesmatter https://t.co/qGbALAoS9o— ManSitChoAzzDown (@ManSitChoAzzDown)1475371434.0
The incident occurred around 4 p.m., and police currently have no suspects, D.C. Police Spokesperson Aquita Brown told the Associated Press. Unsurprisingly, the hotel's spokespeople have no comment. Preservationists might say Trump was the real vandal when he renovated the beautiful, historic Old Post Office building into a luxury hotel. The Trump Organization has a sixty year lease. Rooms start at $400 a night and go all the way up to a Presidential Suite where guests can presumably live like a tax dodger for the bargain rate of $9,000 per night.
