A vandal has destroyed US President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Los Angeles police Officer Ray Brown says the vandalism was reported on Wednesday, and someone was subsequently taken into custody. Brown did not have any further information about the person.

Brown says a pickaxe was used in the vandalism.

The star placed on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue in 2007 recognises Trump for his work on the reality show The Apprentice.

Trump’s star was previously vandalised by a man swinging a sledgehammer and pickaxe days before the November 2016 election.
