Robin Bell of Bell Visuals made a decision to decorate Trump's Washington D.C. hotel with some poo emojis in response to Donald Trump's comments.

Slur used by US President projected onto Trump Hotel in the nation's capital (image has been censored). An arrow, also apparently projected on the building, points to the arched doorway.

The videos were posted on the Twitter account of Robin Bell (twitter.com/bellvisuals/media), who has staged other projection protests and been likened to a "hit-and-run editorial writer" by The Washington Post.

He has become known as a kind of projectionist provocateur and something of a "hit-and-run editorial writer", as David Montgomery described him past year in The Washington Post.

In a meeting with lawmakers last week on protection for immigrants, Trump had reportedly called developing world countries including Haiti and some African states "shithole" countries. "THIS PLACE IS A SH-THOLE", read successive messages projected over the entrance of the Trump International Hotel in central Washington, according to a video posted on social media.

"That same month, Bell projected "#SessionsMustGo" and "I thought the KKK was OK until I learned that they smoked pot" on the Department of Justice building, in reference to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
