The word "s***hole" - which President Donald Trump allegedly used to describe countries from which he does not want immigrants coming to the United States - has been projected along with other messages onto his Washington, DC hotel.

Bell, the founder of the video project company Bell Visuals, has previously made headlines for similar projections on Trump's Washington hotel and other buildings that have ties to controversial political figures.

In December, employees at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention were told to avoid using seven words, which Bell then projected onto Trump Hotel in protest.

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

The art work was created in reaction to Trump's alleged comments during a meeting regarding immigration with Congressional leaders at the White House.

Bell's latest installation is part of a widespread backlash to Trump's comments. An arrow, also apparently projected on the building which points to the arched doorway.

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

"It's a pretty clear cut example of impropriety", Bell said, referring to how Trump's private business holdings are an easy way for people seeking to influence him to give him money.

"It also reinforces the concerns that we hear every day, that the President's slogan Make America Great Again is really code for Make America White Again", Richmond added.

A spokesman for the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said there were no other word to describe the remarks than racist.
