Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump doesn’t have to worry about his destroyed Hollywood Walk of Fame star much longer. Repairs on the demolished site have already begun.
According to reports and new footage, Trump’s star should be back to its previous non-damaged state in no time.
It will cost thousands to repair Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Leron Gubler, the president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, told ABC News. This afternoon, with the repairs under way, Gubler told ABC News that it will cost between $3,000 and $10,000 to fix the damage. “It’s mostly the cost of the labor,” Gubler explained. “The stars are composed of the brass symbols and the terrazzo is concrete with marble chips, so it’s a process. It takes quite a bit of work — several hours worth. It’ll take several days to season before they can polish and restore it.” (ABC News)
