'Sh**hole' projected on Trump International hotel after controversial remark

Trump DC Hotel Shithole

Trump, in the discussion in the Oval Office on immigration policy, allegedly used "shithole" to refer to certain countries from which large-scale immigration was undesirable.

The "s***hole" statement comes in reference to reported statements made by the President during a White House meeting with Congressional leaders, when he apparently grew frustrated by proposals that would help Haiti and other countries. "TRY OUR SHITHOLE. THIS PLACE IS A SHITHOLE", read successive messages projected over the entrance of the Trump International Hotel in central Washington, according to a video posted on social media.

The projection also contained a stream of poop smiley-face emojis.

Other phrases were also projected, including "pay Trump bribes here", "emoluments welcome", and "we are all responsible to stand up and end white supremacy".

"The president distracts us from politics that are harming us", Bell added in his expletive-laden protest projection.

The video projection was the work of artist Robin Bell, the founder of video projection company Bell Visuals.

Trump asked why the U.S. should accept immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa, rather than places like Norway.

In May, Bell made headlines for the first time in May 2017, for projecting this message onto the same hotel.

.

Trump incited outrage this week over his reported remark, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Democrats and some Republican lawmakers criticized the president's choice of words and called for him to apologize.

The comments were slammed by the United Nations, who labelled them "racist" as well as "shocking and shameful".

What's more, people are taking to review apps and services like Yelp to use the same word to describe multiple properties - from hotels to restaurants - associated with Trump. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome".
