New York City painted a large, yellow "Black Lives Matter" mural on the street just outside the Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan. Activists and city workers were joined by Mayor Bill de Blasio, who authorised the mural earlier this month.

"Black lives matter in our city, and Black lives matter in the United States of America. Let’s show Donald Trump what he does not understand. Let’s paint it right in front of his building for him," so the mayor who helped paint parts of the mural.
