The five-word proclamation appeared as a projection above the entryway at Washington, D.C.'s Trump International Hotel on Saturday night.

The Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., got temporarily redecorated this weekend. "THIS PLACE IS A S***HOLE" has been projected over the entrance of Trump International Hotel.

"The president distracts us from politics that are harming us", the projection read later in the video.

What was going on in his mind when US President Donald Trump reportedly called African nations and Haiti "sh*thole" countries at a meeting to discuss the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, only he may know.

The art work was created in reaction to Trump's alleged comments during a meeting regarding immigration with Congressional leaders at the White House.

The man behind it was Robin Bells, whose Twitter bio describes him as an "award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC".

Last spring, Bell projected the message "Emoluments welcome" and "Pay Trump bribes here" on the front of the Washington hotel in response to various controversial actions by the president.

Trump asked why the U.S. should accept immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa, rather than places like Norway. Understandably, Trump has taken a lot of criticism for the remark.

The projection also included several smiley poop emojis and a longer message that mocked Trump and his supporters, urging others to reject white supremacist attitudes, according to the Huffington Post.

"There is no other word one can use but "racist, '" United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said, according to Reuters".
