Los Angeles police Officer Ray Brown said the vandalism was reported around 3:30am today and someone was subsequently taken into custody.

The star placed on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue in 2007 recognizes Mr Trump for his work on the reality show “The Apprentice.”

Mr Trump’s star was previously vandalized by a man swinging a sledgehammer and pick axe days before the November 2016 election.
