'This Place Is a Sh*thole' Projected Onto Trump Hotel In Washington, DC

President Donald Trump's now infamous way of describing Haiti and African countries as "s***holes" has been projected onto his Washington, DC hotel.

In the past, Bell has used projections to voice concerns about some of the biggest headlines of the Trump era, including, and.

The art installation is attributed to Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, and was also shared on Instagram by Candace Reels of Female Collective and political activist Sarah Sophie Flicker, both of whom pioneer social justice. He tells CNN the projection was up for less than an hour.

People angered by President Donald Trump's reported remark that African nations and others are "shithole countries" have taken aim at his hotels and resorts on Yelp.

This time around, Trump wasn't in Washington to see the projections in person as he spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

The warning is prompted by a polar air mass led by a deep area of low pressure edging in from Greenland. Large waves may affect the Western Coast due to which beach material may be thrown on the sea front.

"The projection's additional text read in part: "This is not normal" and included such messages as "stay vigilant" and "#resist". The hit-and-run hilarity lasted approximately 40 minutes before Bell left the area, The Washington Post reports. (He has since denied that he used this phrasing.) The alleged remark has been met with continued backlash, including planned boycotts of Trump's State of the Union address and criticism from the nations named.

Bell's latest protest comes on the heels of Trump reportedly saying last week: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

"It also reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President's slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again", Richmond added.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 's***holes, ' whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome".
