President Donald Trump criticized New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to paint a Black Lives Matter mural on a street outside Trump Tower, implying the effort would represent a symbol of hate while “denigrating this luxury Avenue.”

“Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “Spend this money fighting crime instead!”

De Blasio discussed his plan early Tuesday to paint the area after D.C. officials renamed a stretch of 16th Street Northwest as “Black Lives Matter Plaza” last month.
