'S***hole' projected onto Trump hotel with emojis

17 January 2018

After lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador, the president reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from 's***hole countries, ' rather than - for instance - wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway.

Robin Bell of Bell Visuals made a decision to decorate Trump's Washington D.C. hotel with some poo emojis in response to Donald Trump's comments.

If you took a look at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., on Saturday night, you might think it was a real shithole. "THIS PLACE IS A S***HOLE" has been projected over the entrance of Trump International Hotel.

The projections also included the phrases "this is not normal", "the president distracts us from politics that are harming us", "stay vigilant", and "this is not a drill".

And now the message "NOT A DC RESIDENT?"

Less than a week after President Trump's infamous "sh*thole countries" remark, one artist chose to clapback to the president's comments visually, using Trump's very own hotel as the canvas.

The art installation is attributed to Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, and was also shared on Instagram by Candace Reels of Female Collective and political activist Sarah Sophie Flicker, both of whom pioneer social justice.

The US President said: "Why do we want all these people from s***hole countries coming here?"

In May, Bell made headlines for the first time in May 2017, for projecting this message onto the same hotel.


Democrats and some Republican lawmakers criticized the president's choice of words and called for him to apologize.

They said: "There is no other word one can use but "racist".
