Community leaders, city officials, activists, and New Yorkers came together this morning to paint a Black Lives Matter mural on 5th Ave. directly outside Trump Tower. Pres. Trump has called the message ‘a symbol of hate’ and claims the mural will ruin ‘New York’s greatest street.’ NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, who participated in some painting earlier, responded to Trump by tweeting, ‘We are honoring them. The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.’

In US news and current events today, President Donald Trump is clearly upset at the presence of a Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower in New York City. The NYC Black Lives Matter Trump Tower mural is the latest in a series of Black Lives Matter murals that have sprung up in cities around the country after the massive George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests ushered in a new movement against systemic racism and police brutality. For President Trump, the Trump Tower Black Lives Matter mural is a direct message about his draconian policies and fueling the flames of racism and hatred, as is every BLM mural around the world. The BLM murals and Black Lives Matter murals aren’t the solution the the problem, but they are a clear reminder of where our priorities lie and the message protesters wish to send.
