A young supporter of President Donald Trump is taking heat after she was pictured cleaning Trump's defaced Hollywood Walk of Fame star.
Since he announced his intentions to run for president in June 2015 and after he won the Republican nomination and later the White House, Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles has been defaced numerous times.
So when University of Wyoming student Makenna Greenwald visited Hollywood last week, it was no surprise that she found Trump's star to vandalized. And instead of further defacing the star or spitting on it or taking another action to symbolically bash Trump, she instead chose to clean the star.
"Stopped to clean @realDonaldTrump Hollywood Star. Nothing but respect for MY President," Greenwald wrote on Twitter last week, adding the hashtag "#RaisedRight."
She also posted three pictures of herself posing with the star. One of the pictures shows Greenwald cleaning the defaced star and scrubbing what appears to be marker lines and doodles off the star. The other two pictures show Greenwald posing with the then-cleaned star.
As of early Sunday morning the tweet had received nearly 50,000 retweets and more than 200,000 "likes."

And while Greenwald took pride in cleaning off her president's star, liberals decided to tear Greenwald apart for her seemingly kind and compassionate decision.

But despite the liberal hate, many big names, including Eric Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity recognized Greenwald for her efforts:
Thank you Makenna! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 https://t.co/2JL6xTSI4C— Eric Trump (@Eric Trump)1498929408.0
Trump was awarded his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007 during the height of the hit TV show "The Apprentice," which he hosted up until he began his run for the White House.
