Donald Trump’s newly-opened luxury hotel in downtown Washington D.C. was spray-painted with “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice, No Peace” slogans on Saturday.
The Washington Post reported that hotel workers covered the graffiti with plywood. The luxury hotel opened in mid-September on Pennyslvania Avenue, just one mile from the White House. A Twitter user posted a video of a person appearing to spray paint the building on Saturday afternoon.

Trump has been criticised throughout the campaign for his approach to racial issues. Over the course of his presidential campaign, Donald Trump stood in opposition to the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, at one point claiming those involved in it were “looking for trouble”.
