Resolution passed to remove President Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star

On Monday night, councillors voted "unanimously" to pass a resolution to remove the USA president's star, according to a tweet from West Hollywood Mayor John Duran.

So could the resolution have a serious impact quickly?

The council unanimously approved a resolution Monday night.

Since Donald Trump took office, his star (at the nicer end of Hollywood Boulevard) has been repeatedly vandalized and twice completely destroyed. The Chamber of Commerce would have the final say in removing the star.

Among the other reasons listed on the resolution include Trump's policies on climate change, the GOP's abhorrent removal of immigrant children from their parents, and Trump's treatment of transgender persons.

Trump received his star in 2007 for hiswork as a media producer on the Miss Universe Pageant and the highly popular reality TV show The Apprentice, which he also hosted.

Prosecutors said Monday that the suspect in that case, a 24-year-old local resident, would be arraigned next week on a felony count of vandalism in the pickax destruction of President Trump's star. "As of now, there are no plans to remove any stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame".

But the city council doesn't just want to remove it because it keeps getting destroyed.

This is because The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which is in charge of the walk along with LA City Council, has always been reluctant to remove any star.

Hamill, who has been outspoken about his distaste for the president, took to Twitter shortly after the news broke about Trump's star to call for the City Council to give Fisher his spot. He could face as many as three years in jail.

The decision to remove Trump's star was greeted with backlash on social media.

It should be noted that throughout history, no star has ever been removed from the Walk Of Fame.
