    US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in California was vandalized Wednesday morning.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A man dressed as a Los Angeles city construction worker attacked the star with a sledgehammer and pickax, according to Deadline Hollywood.

    The man who vandalized the star told Deadline Hollywood he wanted to remove it completely so it could be auctioned off to raise money for the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault.

    ​Trump’s star was dedicated in 2007 in front of the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.
