The star is one of more than 2,600 set into the pavements on Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Avenue.

The resolution, put forth by West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tem John D'Amico and Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath, urges the city of Los Angeles - where the star is located - and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the marker "due to [Trump's] disturbing treatment of women and other actions".

Citing the president's treatment of women, people of color, queer people, immigrants-you know, basically anyone not a cis, white, male American citizen-the WeHo City Council plans to vote on shooting that star into a black hole where it belongs.

The Trump star has been vandalized numerous times since the former television personality/alleged billionaire decided to make America "meh" again, and was completely destroyed twice-the most recent patriotic act occurring last month-only to be replaced using taxpayer funds.

While the impact of such a resolution - if passed - was unclear, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has previously rejected calls to remove Bill Cosby's star, citing its historical landmark status and referencing a policy of not removing stars over public backlash.

"Once a star has been added to the walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame", said Leron Gubler, then the chamber's president and CEO.

According to a copy of the document, other reasons for the star to be removed include the child migrant border crisis, climate change denial, and more.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a who's who in the celeb world - as of this year, it now features over 2,600 stars spanning categories of motion pictures, television, radio, recording and live performance/theatre. The star recognized Trump for his work on the TV reality show 'The Apprentice.' It has been repaired.

A 24-year-old man has been arrested over the latest incident and charged with one felony count of vandalism.
