'This place is a shithole' projection seems on Donald Trump's DC resort

Slur used by US President projected onto Trump Hotel in the nation's capital

Bell used recent controversial comments made by President Donald Trump to create a projection on the exterior of the president's Washington D.C. hotel.

This time around, Trump wasn't in Washington to see the projections in person as he spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago.

Video footage posted on Twitter shows the word "SH*THOLE" and poop emoji's projected on the wall of the hotel.

"This is not normal", a segment of the display read, along with messages to "stay vigilant" and "#resist".

The video was shared on Twitter by Robin Bell, who describes himself as an "editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist" who is based in Washington DC. An arrow, also apparently projected on the building, points to the arched doorway. In May, Bell projected on the same D.C. hotel "emoluments welcome" and "pay Trump bribes here."

The president, in a discussion last week on immigration policy, used "shithole" to refer to certain countries from which large-scale immigration was undesirable, according to people present at the meeting. ― which he asked after lawmakers suggested granting visas to individuals from Haiti, El Salvador and multiple African nations during a meeting about immigration reform.

Democrats and some Republicans have also expressed disappointment over the president's statement.

Earlier, a spokesperson for the United Nations human rights office, Rupert Colville, labelled the alleged comments as "racist" and the African Union have demanded he apologies.

Although the president and a few of his allies later denied that those words were said, others in the room have sworn that the president did indeed use the harsh language attributed to him.
