“NBC’s Jonathan Gonzalez reported: ‘Multiple people — including police — tell me a man walked up with a guitar case and pulled out the pick axe,” the Daily Beast reported. “Then, it’s believed, he called police himself to report it, but left the scene before they got here. Now, he’s nowhere to be found.”
Trump’s star was previously vandalized in 2016, also with a pick axe.
