The projection is, of course, a reference to Trump's at-best-questionable, at-worst-openly-racist comment referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and the sum total of Africa as "shithole nations" during a recent immigration policy meeting.
"This place is a shithole" was projected onto the front steps of the hotel, as an apparent response to the reports about Trump's shithole remarks.
Bell has previously projected "Puerto Ricans left homeless by [Hurricane] Maria check in here", "Corporate polluters enter here" and "Trump is a bomb threat" on Mr Trump's hotel.
"The president distracts us from politics that are harming us", the projection read later in the video.
In May, Bell made headlines for the first time in May 2017, for projecting this message onto the same hotel.. An arrow, also apparently projected on the building, points to the arched doorway.

A 10-speed automatic transmission is standard on all Power Stroke F-150 models, and was developed exclusively for the truck. It's a move to increase the range of its popular F-150 pickup and attract new buyers in the unusually loyal truck market .
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who was present at the meeting confirmed "shithole" was the exact word used by the United States president, recollecting the "hate-filled, vile and racist" things Trump supposedly said.
Democrats and some Republicans have also expressed disappointment over the president's statement.
A spokesman for the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said there were no other word to describe the remarks than racist.
Trump has since denied using the word, though he admitted his language was "tough".
"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 's***holes, ' whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome".
