‘Happy to help, bro’: Putin projected onto Trump SoHo hotel in New York City
One of the Trump organization’s flagship buildings was the scene of a bizarre protest on Monday night as images of Russian President Vladimir Putin were projected onto the façade.
The protest, organized by video journalist Robin Bell, targeted the Trump SoHo New York luxury hotel in lower Manhattan.
Messages including ‘Laundering services available,’ ‘Follow the money’ and ‘Happy to help, bro’ appeared alongside pictures of a smiling Putin and the Russian flag.

As well as the projections, the protest featured a handful of people dressed like Russian soldiers, with one of them bearing a Russian flag.
This isn’t the first time someone has projected messages onto a Trump hotel. In May another demonstration saw ‘Pay Trump Bribes Here’ appear above the entrance to the Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in downtown Washington, DC.
Indeed, Trump Hotels are focal points for all manner of protest since the businessman decided to run for president.
Numerous high profile sports people, including basketball star LeBron James, have opted against staying in the hotels during team visits, while in January a man tried to set himself on fire outside one of Trump’s establishments.
