Donald Trump has taken issue with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to paint “Black Lives Matter” in giant letters on the street in front of the US president’s Manhattan tower.
Mr Trump tweeted that Mr de Blasio “wants to paint the fabled & beautiful Fifth Avenue, right in front of Trump Tower/Tiffany, with a big yellow Black Lives Matter sign”.
“’Pigs in a Blanket, Fry ’Em Like Bacon’, referring to killing Police, is their chant. NYC Police are furious!” his tweet said.
But that has not been a common chant at protests in New York or elsewhere since the death of George Floyd one month ago in Minneapolis.
