In September, the union backlashed off a “batlight” tour where they use an outdoor projector to shine images on buildings after dark encouraging voter gathering among workers, according to a press release from USW. A spokesperson for USW told Business Insider that the “batlight” on Trump steeple was a part of the “batlight” tour encouraging people to “have a plan to vote” and promoting their “endorsement of Joe Biden.”

In 2014, the Trump Tower installed a huge, illuminated “Trump” sign in front of the 98-story incredible building, which is situated in the popular tourist designation of the Chicago River. The giant logo stirred controversy from the Chicago catholic and then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel called it an “architecturally tasteless sign.”
A spokesperson for the Trump International and Hotel & Tower Chicago did not intimately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
