The brand-spanking-new Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., just got a paint job courtesy of those who believe that black lives matter.

The words “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice No Peace” were spray-painted at one of the entrances of the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. Workers at the hotel covered up the messages with pieces of plywood Saturday morning, giving the classy joint a rundown, skid row kinda look.

The new hotel officially opened less than three weeks ago in the Old Post Office space.

The Republican candidate for president has said in the past that the Black Lives Matter movement has been “a fuse-lighter in the assassinations of police officers.”

A video later surfaced in which a man wearing a yellow shirt can be seen actually tagging the hotel, and of course, an upstanding bystander snitch calls police on him. A young group of women and her friends yell to the tagger that the police are being called, and the spray-painting man skedaddles across the street with speed.

The woman also yelled “Black lives matter” for good measure after she gave the man the warning.
