NYC 'Trump Tombstone' on display after police confiscate it
NEW YORK - A granite tombstone bearing the name Donald J. Trump that police confiscated in Central Park months ago is now on display at a Brooklyn gallery.
The year of Trump's birth and the words "Made America Hate Again" also are chiseled into the 500-pound slab.
Artist Brian Andrew Whiteley says he created it to remind the Republican presidential nominee that he has "stirred the pot of racism, anger and fear." He says he wants to help Trump reflect on the legacy he's leaving.
Dubbed "The Trump Tombstone," it appeared last spring in the Manhattan park in the middle of the night. Police quickly removed it and held it for months.
When discovered, Whiteley paid a $300 fine for littering.
This weekend, the tombstone reappeared in a Brooklyn gallery.
