Surprise! Los Angeles residents don't like Trump
A man with a pickaxe completely destroyed President Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Wednesday morning (July 25th)
A suspect quickly turned himself in to the LAPD.
A witness who watched what happened told KCAL/KCBS that she saw a man "going to town" on Trump's star. She added "I thought it was work going on over here."
This isn't the first time someone has gone "to town" on Trump's star. In 2016, an artist put a makeshift wall around Trump's star. In October of that year, someone vandalized the star with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe.
Jonathan Gonzalez, a reporter from NBC Los Angeles, posted a bunch of photos on his Twitter.
Donald Trump hasn't responded (or tweeted) about the incident yet.
