Trump’s repaired Hollywood star to be unveiled soon

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials hope to unveil Donald Trump’s repaired star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as soon as possible now that he’s been elected president.

The star along a well-traveled block of Hollywood Boulevard remained blocked off and covered in plywood Wednesday, two weeks after a protester was arrested for taking a sledgehammer to it.

The man was charged with felony vandalism.

Vivian Kish with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce says the star has been mostly repaired but still needs to dry and be polished.

About two dozen Trump supporters reveled at the site after the election, snapping photos until police asked them to move on. Trump’s star was dedicated in recognition of his work on NBC’s “The Apprentice.”
