Painters along New York’s posh Fifth Avenue are working on a Black Lives Matter mural on New York’s posh Fifth Avenue.

And, at the direction of Mayor Bill de Blasio, the big yellow letters are going on the street right in front of Trump Tower.

President Donald Trump is less than pleased.

On Twitter, the mayor said black people built Fifth Avenue and much of the nation.

“We are honoring them,” de Blasio tweeted in response to the president. “The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.”
