Those living in Trump Tower in New York City are about to wake up every day with a bold message staring at them on the ground as they look out the window.
According to Mayor Bill de Blasio, the city will paint a large street mural outside the Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th street that reads “Black Lives Matter.”
DeBlasio’s spokeswoman Julia Arredondo addressed the plans on Wednesday according to the New York Daily News, “the president is a disgrace to the values we cherish in New York City. He can’t run or deny the reality we are facing, and any time he wants to set foot in the place he claims is his hometown, he should be reminded Black Lives Matter.”
According to the New York Post, this mural will be one of seven “Black Lives Matter” murals that will be painted across the city across all five boroughs. A second one is planned to be painted across Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard in Harlem, as well as one in Centre Street in lower Manhattan.
“The president is a disgrace to the values we cherish in New York City. He can’t run or deny the reality we are facing, and any time he wants to set foot in the place he claims is his hometown, he should be reminded Black Lives Matter,” Julia Arredondo, the mayor’s spokeswoman, said Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported.
The statement will be painted along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets in front of President Trump‘s notable Manhattan building sometime before July 4.

Mural like that have popped up around the country since Washington D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser created one on Sixteenth Street directly in front of Lafayette Square in front of the White House earlier this month.
