A Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, that became a rallying point for white nationalists has been vandalised again, this time with graffiti saying, “Impeach Trump”.
News outlets report that the statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee was also spray-painted Thursday night with “This is Racist”.
Tarps were put over the graffiti and city officials expect a clean-up effort to start on Monday.
The statue was vandalised earlier this year with an expletive directed at President Donald Trump.
White nationalists seized on a city plan to remove the statue and flocked there in 2017 for a rally that turned violent and deadly.
The city”s effort to remove the statue have been prevented by a judge amid ongoing litigation. The statue has been vandalised several times previously.
