The West Hollywood City Council called Monday night for President Trump’s star be removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Mayor John Duran wrote on Twitter, “West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame."
 
During the meeting, Mr. Duran said the resolution “is not because of his conservative politics or his conservative policies. It is for the abuse of women, minorities, immigrants, the disabled … you’ve crossed a line of decency.”

He also said the constituent comments were what he expected (badly) of Trump supporters.
 
He explained, “Unfortunately some of the comments made by the Trump supporters tonight are a reflection of that anger and angst and divisiveness. If anyone ever needed to solidify my vote on this, the Trump supporters who showed up tonight … pretty much solidified that what we’re doing is right.”

The vote was largely symbolic, simply making a request of the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the marker, which was unveiled in 2007.

The Trump star has been vandalized numerous times and destroyed twice.
