The “Black Lives Matter” mural on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue directly in front of Trump Tower — a project President Donald Trump blasted as a “symbol of hate” — has been defaced with a large splash of red paint.

Photos and videos posted to social media at lunchtime Monday showed red paint all over the letters “liv” in Lives. One video, obtained by News 4, shows a person person dressed in dark colors and hat, dump a single can of paint across the mural before running away; the NYPD is investigating.
