President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been boarded up, along with other buildings on Hollywood Boulevard, ahead of election night.
According to posts on Twitter, the star was covered with plywood on Tuesday with guardrails set up around it to prevent people from accessing the sidewalk lankdmark.
A sign with the words “No public access” had also been hung up.
Trump’s star had been boarded up on Friday following an act of vandalism involving a pickax, a spokesperson for the Walk of Fame told TheWrap.

The star has been vandalized at least four times since Trump assumed the presidency — including two defacements last month alone. Local activist James Otis has claimed he was behind both of last month’s attacks. He previously destroyed Trump’s star in 2016, and the star was again vandalized in 2018.
Trump received the star in 2007 in the TV category, for producing beauty pageants.
