Trump pranked

Over the last two and a half years, Donald Trump has dominated the political landscape [VIDEO] since he first announced his campaign for president back in June 2015. During that announcement, the former host of "The Apprentice" came under fire for referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." In the time that has followed, Trump has continued to push his agenda on immigration, from the potential of mass deportation, select travel bans, and even the promise that Mexico will fund a border wall.

With these issues constantly hanging over his head, Trump was hit once again with criticism after multiple reports and lawmakers revealed that the president spoke out against immigration protection for people from Haiti, El Salvador, and countries in Africa by labeling them a "sh*thole." In the aftermath, Trump has denied the allegations despite the confirmation from many congressmen, leading to a prank being pulled on one of the president's hotels, as reported by #The Hill on January 13.

According to The Hill on Saturday night, a video was posted to the streaming service #Periscope on Saturday night that trolled the president. Unknown pranksters decided to project the word "sh*thole" onto Donald Trump's hotel in Washington, D.C.

as way to push back against his remarks. In addition, several other phrases were projected, including "Pay Trump Bribes Here," "Emoluments Welcome," and "We Are All Responsible To Stand Up And End White Supremacy."

Additional projections added that "The President of the United States is a known racist and a Na*i sympathizer" saying "This is not a drill," while using the hashtag "Resist." As of press time, neither Donald Trump himself nor the White House have offered a comment on the prank in question.

Moving forward

As Donald Trump continues to be accused of racism, the administration and the president's supporters have done everything in their power to blame the allegations on so-called media bias. Trump's remarks have received international condemnation, including in a statement released by the African Union that called on the commander in chief to issue an apology over the remarks. With 2018 only two weeks old, the president's approval rating continues to remain at historic lows, currently sitting at just 35 percent. #Republican Party
