The United Steelworkers beamed a “Biden Harris” sign onto the Trump Tower in Chicago, Illinois over the weekend.
USW posted photos of a “batlight” the union cast in support of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris on the Trump International and Hotel & Tower Chicago on Saturday morning.
In September, the union kicked off a “batlight” tour where they use an outdoor projector to shine images on buildings after dark encouraging voter turnout among workers, according to a press release from USW. A spokesperson for USW did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment on the bat light on Trump Tower.

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