WATCH: Al Sharpton and Bill de Blasio Help Paint BLM Mural in Front of Trump Tower

In a move that certainly appears to have been designed to upset President Trump, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Sharpton helped painting the “Black Lives Matter” mural that went up in front of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue Monday.


De Blasio proudly tweeted a photo of the event with “TRUMP TOWER” very clearly in the shot.

De Blasio added in the tweet “Our city isn’t just painting the words on Fifth Avenue. We’re committed to the meaning of the message. #BlackLivesMatter

President Trump had made it very clear he opposed the project, tweeting July 1st:

NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue. This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the….

….horrible BLM chant, “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon”. Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!
