Could Trump's Walk of Fame Star Be Removed?

The West Hollywood City Council wants it gone.

On August 6, the West Hollywood City Council passed a resolution calling for the removal of President Donald Trump's star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame "due to his disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country," according to CBS News.

A 24-year-old California man, Austin Clay, has been charged with one count of felony vandalism following that incident. He could face up to three years in jail if convicted. The July 25 incident was not the first time Trump's star had been destroyed: The plaque was previously smashed in October 2016, just weeks before the presidential election.
