Washington DC artist Robin Bell projected animated anti-Trump messages on the Trump International Hotel in DC, including “emoluments welcome here” and “pay Trump bribes here”. The messages protest the fact that Trump gains financially from the hotel, which makes money from foreign governments. The emoluments clause of the constitution prohibits government officials from making money from foreign governments.

The projections were only up for 6 minutes before the hotel demanded that they turn them off, but it was long enough for an open-top tour bus to go by. The tourists on the bus reportedly cheered at the sight.
