A group of New York artists angered with Donald Trump’s victory are taking their frustration out on the President-elect’s daughter, Ivanka, demanding that she remove their artwork from the walls of her home.
These artists have joined the “Dear Ivanka” campaign, created by Halt Action Group.
The website reads the following:
Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere—least of all in the White House.
Steve Bannon has no place in the White House. Jeff Sessions has no place in the White House. Talk of a Muslim registry has no place in the White House.
Hate has no place in the White House.
We refuse to “wait and see”. We look to you as the voice of reason.

Ivanka has posted over 2,700 pictures on her Instagram, many of which feature art in her home.
Ivanka had posted a picture on her own social media of her standing next to a piece by Philadelphia artist Alex Da Corte.
De Corte recently wrote the following to Ivanka on Instagram:
“Dear @Ivankatrump please get my work off of your walls. I am embarrassed to be seen with you.”
Halt Action Group organized a rally outside of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s home in Manhattan on November 28.
Approximately 500 people showed up to the protest where they carried signs, chanted and held a candlelight vigil.
The group also collected cards from people explaining why they are concerned with Donald Trump’s presidency.
‘I am a Muslim-American immigrant and I don’t feel safe,’ said one card.
‘You’re scaring the hell out of women,’ another read.
