Just days after Donald Trump’s controversial call to ban Muslims from entering the United States, someone painted large swastikas featuring the Republican presidential candidate’s face on at least two northeast Atlanta bridge supports.
The symbol, which includes a cartoon of Trump sporting a Hitler-like mustache, was painted along the Buford Highway Connector late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
A second, similar image was found on a concrete bridge support on nearby Piedmont Road near Miami Circle.
Atlanta police spokesman Warren Pickard told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the agency was investigating the graffiti, which was removed by police.
Trump said in a statement released Monday that there should be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” At a Monday night campaign rally in South Carolina, the Republican frontrunner said the ban should last “until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
