The news has prompted severe global outrage, as people posted outspoken comments on Twitter, posted breathtakingly handsome pictures of Haiti and the rest of Africa, or, conversely, "shithole" scenery of some American locations, aimed to illustrate that lousy places can be found all around the globe.

Bell has previously projected criticism of the president onto the hotel, according to The Washington Post.

The projection also contained a stream of poop smiley-face emojis.

Trump was not in Washington over the weekend.

"This is not normal", a segment of the display read, along with messages to "stay vigilant" and "#resist".

The man behind it was Robin Bells, whose Twitter bio describes him as an "award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington DC".

"The president distracts us from politics that are harming us", Bell added in his expletive-laden protest projection. Bell said he had focused his projector onto the building for about 40 minutes. In May, Bell projected on the same D.C. hotel "emoluments welcome" and "pay Trump bribes here." An arrow, also apparently projected on the building, points to the arched doorway.

Trump incited outrage this week over his reported remark, "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

What was going on in his mind when US President Donald Trump reportedly called African nations and Haiti "sh*thole" countries at a meeting to discuss the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, only he may know.

There has been no shortage of reactions to Trump's "shithole" remark he allegedly made during the notorious immigration meeting with lawmakers on Thursday.

The chorus of global condemnation of Trump's supposedly racism-charged words was led by El Salvador, Cuba, the United Nations human rights agency, Mexico and others. "You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes" whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome".
