Al Sharpton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday to paint "Black lives matter" on Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower.

De Blasio announced the move about two weeks ago and got into a testy Twitter exchange with President Donald Trump over the decision to paint the mural in front of his building. As Blavity previously reported, Trump said on Twitter that Black Lives Matter is a "symbol of hate."
