Vulgarity used by president projected onto Trump Hotel in Washington DC

Vulgarity used by president projected onto Trump Hotel in Washington DC

THIS PLACE IS A S***HOLE, ' read successive messages projected over the entrance of the Trump International Hotel in central Washington, according to videos posted on social media.

Trump Hotel in downtown Washington DC got a surprise makeover last night-with the expletive President Donald Trump has used to describe developing world countries beamed onto its outer walls.

A flood of grinning faeces emojis then stream out of the hotel's entrance as "SHITHOLE" appears in larger text above it. In another loop, the word "shithole" was accompanied by an arrow pointing to the Trump hotel entrance.

The latest projection stunt relates to Trump's comments regarding Haiti, El Salvador, and several African nations when speaking with lawmakers about immigration reform last week.

He has become known as a kind of projectionist provocateur and something of a "hit-and-run editorial writer", as David Montgomery described him in The Washington Post past year.

The news has prompted severe global outrage, as people posted outspoken comments on Twitter, posted breathtakingly lovely pictures of Haiti and the rest of Africa, or, conversely, "shithole" scenery of some American locations, aimed to illustrate that lousy places can be found all around the globe.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" the president is reported to have said during a discussion about protection for immigrants from certain countries in a bipartisan immigration agreement.

The White House initially did not deny that Trump made the remarks, but Trump later disputed the reports on Twitter. Trump has since denied using the word, though he admitted his language was "tough". "What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!"
