(CNN)New York City is painting a Black Lives Matter mural on the street directly outside of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan.
City employees began painting a stretch of Fifth Avenue, just in front of the Trump Organization's headquarters, on Thursday morning. Mayor Bill de Blasio authorized the stark yellow mural earlier this month.
The New York mayor rolled up his sleeves and painted a bit of the mural, too, clad in a mask and flanked by civil rights leader, the Rev. Al Sharpton.
"President Trump said we would be denigrating the luxury of Fifth Avenue. Let me tell you: we're not denigrating anything, we are liberating Fifth Avenue, we are uplifting Fifth Avenue," de Blasio said on Thursday in response to Trump's tweet last week criticizing de Blasio for "denigrating" the area.
He added, "Who built this city, who built this nation, and never got the acknowledgement, the recognition..." "When we say 'Black Lives Matter' there is no more American statement, there's no more patriotic statement, because there is no America without Black America. We are acknowledging the truth in ourselves and in America.
By saying 'Black lives matter' we are righting a wrong," de Blasio said.

I'll start with "de Blasio's Brain Has No Matter"
MAGA. KAGA. WHite lives matter too.
It’s another 2020 election move to paint the President as a racist.
There is no low that the Democrats and their foot soldiers won’t sink to.
I cannot believe we are witnessing the Democrats destroying the USA yet here we are. 2008 showed just how many fools there are in this nation. 2012 reaffirmed how many fools there are.
and if someone other than a Dem does it they get arrested ,LOL
Petty and meaningless, just like most democrats.
I lived in that city for 22 years, left in 2011, and I’m speechless. The place is gone.
Perfect color though — bright Jive Yellow. -—not
How about “5th Avenue no longer matters as a luxury retail location” and “Manhattan no longer matters in the premium commercial real estate market”.
To Hell with New York City - they elected a Marxist mayor, now they get to enjoy the consequences. I’m amazed they can still afford paint brushes for this sort of idiocy.
Black lives matter, until a black kills another black.
Let’s see how blacks feel about NYC in the next few months as the body count increases every day.
The mayor maybe forgot that President Trump is a resident of Florida now so he will never see the sign.
How about a “Senior Citizens Lives Don’t Matter” mural outside Dip-Blasio’s office?
that is not a mural, it’s just words, just a slogan, name of an organization. media can’t even get that right and has to try to make it seem more important than it is.
So you saw the transformation from Dinkens through Giuliani etc?
Do tell, share a story or two?
I wish they would quit calling these murals. You painted the road.
Just have a military parade down the street. .... With lots of horses. ....
Anybody tell these morons the POTUS doesn’t live there anymore.
Deblasio paints while ny burns. Only difference is nero had a fiddle...blazAhole has a paint brush.
Paint a mural across the street from Sharptons mansion. Pay your damn taxes, you POS.
The rest of America can see what smarmy jack-wagons these leftists are.
Paint “Blue Lives Matter” in front of Gracie Mansion.
Do it with Federal Troops.
See if Wilhelm tries to stop them.
...... “Senior’s Lives Matter” ...... in Front of the Mayor’s Residence ......
