Trump Statue Vandalized, Removed Near Life is Beautiful Festival

LAS VEGAS (AP) — An artist’s likeness of a naked Donald Trump didn’t last long in a parking lot near a downtown Las Vegas music festival site.

The statue of the Republican presidential nominee was knocked down and sprayed with graffiti overnight, and removed Friday by from a corner near the Life is Beautiful venue.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that all that remained was a pedestal with two pink feet attached.

Las Vegas police Officer Michael Rodriguez had no immediate information about the incident.

The statue was spotted Wednesday outside festival grounds, and a festival spokeswoman said the event had no involvement in its display.

The vandalism in Las Vegas comes after life-sized Trump statues disappeared this week in Miami and in New Jersey.

The statues are produced by Las Vegas artist Joshua Monroe. They first appeared in August in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle.
