The Black Lives Matter street mural outside Trump Tower has been vandalised with red paint just four days after being unveiled.
An unnamed suspect walked up to the mural, dumped red paint over the letter V in “Lives,” and ran away as passing traffic further splattered the paint across the sign, New York Police Department officials said.
President Donald Trump previously called the words “Black Lives Matter” a “symbol of hate,” and criticised New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for “denigrating” the area.
