Donald Trump didn’t even need to become president to get his wall.

The Republican candidate’s plan to build a wall on the Mexican border (and force the country to pay for it) has repeatedly come up during his campaign. L.A. street artist Plastic Jesus gave Trump a different one, erecting a small concrete wall – topped with razor wire – around the reality TV and business tycoon’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

One of the sections of Trump’s web site is titled “Compelling Mexico to pay for the wall,” and reads, “There are several ways to compel Mexico to pay for the wall,” before outlining a three-day process (as well as economic and visa sanctions) to ensure Mexico makes the “one-time payment of $5-10 billion.”

“We have the moral high ground here, and all the leverage,” it concludes.

It’s unclear whether Plastic Jesus implemented a similar plan to force the Hollywood Walk of Fame to pay for his wall. The British-born artist is known for his controversial art projects around L.A., including “No Trump Anytime” and “No Kardashian Anytime” parking signs and a parody of the Academy Award statue that features the Oscar injecting heroin.
