It appears from early footage that this anonymous person took a pickaxe to the star early Wednesday. One reporter who was on the scene said he was told a man walked up to the star with the tool and a guitar case.
This is the second time Trump’s star has been demolished beyond recognition.
The first time was in 2016, when James Lambert Otis, 53, took a jackhammer and pickaxe to the star. He later pleaded no contest to a charge of vandalism.
Trump’s star was dedicated to the now-president in 2007 in recognition of his work on NBC reality show The Apprentice.
