Painting “Black Lives Matter” Is A Symbol Of Hate — Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said painting “Black Lives Matter” on New York’s Fifth Avenue would be “a symbol of hate” and wind up “denigrating” the street outside of Trump Tower, as he ratcheted up objections to a plan that he suggested the city’s police could stop.

Trump’s comments, in morning tweets, were his latest directed at New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who last week ordered that the tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement be painted in large yellow letters.

It was also the second time in as many weeks that Trump has lashed out at the Black Lives Matter movement as polls show a majority of Americans disapproving of his response to the nationwide protests.

In his tweets, Trump also decried a move by New York officials to shift about $1 billion from the city’s police budget in a bid to respond to calls to “defund the police” that resonated following the recent deaths of George Floyd and other African Americans in police custody.
