"Keep taking down the @realDonaldTrump star, and we will further spread Trump Derangement Syndrome by installing a never ending stream of stars", the group, that nicknamed themselves the "MAGA Legion", tweeted Thursday.

Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

A cleaning service that deals with graffiti and vandalism along the Walk of Fame told THR that it found about "about 50" if the fake Trump stars Thursday morning that "looked pretty real".

An unnamed conservative street artist took credit for the move, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and was behind adhering a number of laminated, vinyl stars to the iconic sidewalk.

On Wednesday, Mayor Eric Garcetti told reporters the star should remain where it is despite the West Hollywood City Council's unanimous vote to remove it.

Meanwhile, a possible Trump 2020 presidential oponent said stop focusing on his Hollywood star and concentrate on flipping Congress in the mid-tern election. The stars, printed on sheets of floor vinyl with adhesive backing, cost $1,000 and were financed in part by "a young and anonymous entrepreneur", according to the Reporter.

The street art was in response to the West Hollywood City council passing a resolution calling for the star's removal. "Not only would the star be destroyed, but it would damage our property", a Ripley's Believe It or Not! employee said.

An onlooker said one of the stickers was placed over disgraced actor Kevin Spacey's star.

"The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark".

The president's star was destroyed for the second time last month by a pickaxe-wielding 24-year-old man who turned himself into police.

"Take down his star, and we will descend upon you with 30 fresh new stars", the artist group wrote on Twitter in an August 9 post.
