The NYPD arrested four people who threw blue paint on the Black Lives Matter mural outside of Trump Tower in Midtown Friday claiming to be “Trans for Trump”.
The incident happened around 4 p.m.
Two women and a man were arrested and charged with criminal mischief. Germanotta (no first name), 39, D’Anna Morgan, 25, and Luis Martinez, 44 were released with a desk appearance ticket, according to police.
Another person, who was identified only as a 64-year-old woman, was issued a summons for illegally posting fliers.
Germanotta was arrested while wearing an “All Lives Matter” shirt and wearing a rainbow-colored flag with the words “LGBT for Trump” on it. She said she wants people to know she is transgender, HIV positive and a registered Democrat who plans to vote for Trump in November.
“It should be all lives. All includes Black lives, brown lives, white lives, trans lives matter” Germanotta said.
