The West Hollywood City Council will vote Monday night on a proposal to urge that the star be removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The zero-detention policy which led to the separation of children from their parents at the U.S. border and Trump's denial of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election during his meet with Vladimir Putin also finds a mention in the resolution. The marker has been repeatedly vandalized since Trump took office and been destroyed on twice.

Ahead of the vote on Monday, West Hollywood City Council said they were following the steps of the American film industry, which suspended "certain members of the entertainment community... due to their actions toward women".

The Chamber of Commerce has previous said it would never remove a star over backlash.

Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leron Gubler explained to The Hollywood Reporter: "The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark".

"Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk", he added. The star recognised Trump for his work on the TV reality show The Apprentice.

Last month, Trump's star was smashed with a pickaxe by 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay, who faces a felony vandalism charge and a $20,000 fine.

It's unclear whether Clay has a lawyer.
