Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star Gets Vandalized

Donald Trump's Star on the Walk of Fame Has Been Destroyed Again

It's not the first time protestors have targeted this symbol of the president.

Donald Trump's Star on the Walk of Fame was apparently destroyed with a pickaxe in the early-morning hours of July 25; a suspect is now in custody. Trump's star has been smashed once before, in October 2016, and it's been the site of multiple anti-Trump demonstrations (and pro-Trump counterdemonstrations) in recent years. Below, photos of this contested stretch of Los Angeles sidewalk.
