What goes around… 'S***hole' emblazoned onto Trump's DC hotel

An artist took a projector and displayed the word "sh*thole" on the Washington, D.C., Trump International Hotel Saturday to make a statement about the president's reported comments.

The news has prompted severe worldwide outrage, as people posted outspoken comments on Twitter, posted breathtakingly attractive pictures of Haiti and the rest of Africa, or, conversely, "shithole" scenery of some American locations, aimed to illustrate that lousy places can be found all around the globe.

US President Donald Trump has been facing strong condemnation at home and overseas after suggesting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa were from "shithole countries".

The projection also included several smiley poop emojis and a longer message that mocked Trump and his supporters, urging others to reject white supremacist attitudes, according to the Huffington Post.

The Washingtonian found similarly scathing reviews on the Yelp pages of other Trump properties in New York, Las Vegas and Chicago. Need a place to stay?

No group has said it was behind the attack, but the Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad praised the attackers. The tunnel was positioned in southern Gaza , near the Kerem Shalom crossing where the borders of Israel, Gaza and Sinai meet.

'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used.

Another message was "Pay Trump bribes here", a message Bell projected on the hotel a year ago.

The man behind it was Robin Bells, whose Twitter bio describes him as an "award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC". He said he projected Saturday night's message onto the building for about 40 minutes.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was present at the meeting confirmed "shithole" was the exact word used by the USA president, recollecting the "hate-filled, vile and racist" things Trump supposedly said.
