Outrage after Trump refers to Black Lives Matter logo as ‘symbol of hate’

President Trump sparked outrage and condemnation when he referred to the Black Lives Matter logo as a “symbol of hate.”

Trump reacted angrily to the news that NY’s City Council cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s budget and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s announcement that a Black Lives Matter logo will be painted on Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower.

Trump tweeted that the Black Lives Matter logo painted in huge yellow letters would “denigrate” prestigious Fifth Avenue.

“NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue. This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the…. horrible BLM chant, “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon”. Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!”

Twitter’s response to Trump’s tweets were a mix of outrage and support.
