Will Trump’s Hollywood Star Be Replaced?

Will Trump's Hollywood Star Be Replaced?

[Updated] The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution to permanently remove Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star. In practice, the action would be complicated. The Walk of Fame is a project of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and the sidewalk paving is the purview of the City of Los Angeles.

A Depression-era child laborer, she toiled in the film industry until she no longer resembled the effigies of her likeness sold to parents of millions of girl children.
