The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution Monday night calling for President Donald Trump’s twice-vandalized star to be removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to a Monday USA Today report.

From the mayor of West Hollywood:

Despite the show of enthusiasm, the council has little say in the matter, as the star is reportedly the property of Los Angeles, not West Hollywood, and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has consistently refused requests to remove stars of figures including Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey.

This is not the first time Duran has waded into national politics during the Trump tenure, as he awarded Stormy Daniels the key to the city in May.
