A tagger was caught in the act late Saturday afternoon spraying words of protest on the front of Donald Trump’s five-star hotel in Washington, D.C., according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Video on social media appears to show a man dressed in a yellow shirt and blue hat walked up to the entrance and spray paint “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice, No Peace” near the Trump International Hotel.
As he walks away from the scene, bystanders can be heard condemning his actions and threatening to call police.
Police spokeswoman Aquita Brown said Sunday that the suspect has not been identified yet, but they are investigating.

Trump International Hotel came under fire in July 2015 when The Washington Post reported that the GOP presidential nominee may be relying on illegal employees to finish his Washington D.C. property, which sits five blocks from the White House.
Two well-known chefs, Geoffrey Zakarian and Jose Andres, backed out of plans to open restaurants in the hotel due to Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants. Trump responded by suing the restaurateurs.
