In 2007, the US President Donald Trump’s star was unveiled and since the time US president took office, the star has been vandalized several times and now is completely destroyed by a recent pickaxe attack done in July by a 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay, who was then arrested for the act.
The West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted to decide for the removal of the star. The two main reasons being Trump’s policy of separating children and their parents at the US border and alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
On Monday evening, the council meeting was held where the West Hollywood City Council made the recommendation of removing Donald Trump’s star to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and presented papers which read:
“Having a ‘star’ on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry. Allowing Mr Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behaviour towards women, particularly in the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities.”
Later, the mayor of West Hollywood John Duran disclosed the decision on Twitter, stating:
“The City Council will consider adopting a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J 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.”
