When you walk down the streets of Hollywood, you may longer see Donald Trump’s star, if you care.
Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star has been defamed continuously since he came into office and the West Hollywood City Council has heard the people loud and clear.
According to NBC News, the vote went through last night to request the removal of the President’s star from the famed sidewalk.
The resolution was passed due to “Trump’s “attacks” on “minorities, immigrants” and other groups” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran.
However, the council does not have the power over the Hollywood Walk of Fame itself, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has that authority and a spokesperson for the HCC said a decision will be made soon.
Mayor Duran went on to say, “The West Hollywood City Council did not pass the resolution because Donald Trump is a conservative or a Republican. Earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an honor. When one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities or women — the honor no longer exists.”
The council stated that the decision to remove Trump’s star was due to the separation of immigrant families at the U.S. border and his “denial of findings from the United States intelligence community regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election and continued refusal to hold Russia accountable for its crimes.”
I hope they pass it!
