The West Hollywood City Council has unanimously voted to remove President Trump’s star from the Walk of Fame, Mayor John Duran tweeted.

The council is expected to send a formal letter to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the Los Angeles City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to consider removing the monument.
However, a statement from the Chamber suggests that it’s unlikely it will act.
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said chamber president Leron Gubler.
Since Donald Trump took office, his Walk of Fame star has been vandalized on multiple occasions – and even reduced to rubble twice. The most recent incident took place in late July when a pickaxe-wielding vandal smashed the Hollywood landmark.
