The president's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been the subject of repeated vandalism since Trump was a candidate for the nation's highest office.


Weeks before the November election last year, a man dressed as a construction worker smashed the star using a sledge hammer and pickax. The man was sentenced for vandalism.

Before that, last July, a California street artist placed a miniature wall around the star – a jab at Trump's high-profile vow to build a massive barrier between the U.S. and Mexico.

In June, the star was covered with #Resist stickers during a protest in California.

The decision to clean up the president's star this week drew the attention of Fox News host Sean HannitySean Patrick HannityThe Hill's Coronavirus Report: Stagwell President Mark Penn says Trump is losing on fighting the virus; Fauci says U.S. 'going in the wrong direction' in fight against virus Trump dings CNN, 'Morning Joe' ratings as Tucker Carlson sets record The Hill's Morning Report - Republicans shift, urge people to wear masks MORE, a steadfast Trump ally himself.

"Wow. Great American. @CNN @NBCNews @JoeNBC (who calls the @POTUS a schmuck, liar, goon etc.). Watch and learn what respect for the office is," Hannity wrote on Twitter, referencing "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough.
