After being attacked physically by sledgehammers and pickaxes in the past, President Trumps star on the walk of fame is now being attacked by a vote from the West Hollywood City Council.
On Monday, the panel voted unanimously on a resolution pleading with the LA City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to banish the star. This was the substance of a tweet from Mayor Joe Duran on Monday:
West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. #horcruxdestroyed #bellicose #belligerent #unAmericanvalues #MakeAmericaintoAmericaAgain

The reason the vote took place was according to Council members John D’Amico and Lindsey Horvath, because of Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country.”
Before the star is removed though, it must first get the approval of the LA City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. But, this is not likely to happen as stated by the chamber:
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk,” said Leron Gubler, the organization’s president and CEO.
