New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning a giant “Black Lives Matter” mural for right outside Trump Tower in Manhattan.

The New York Post said the mural will be painted in yellow block letters along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets. The slogan will be stenciled outside Trump Tower sometime in the next two weeks.

The Post noted it comes at a time when the city is dealing with a surge in gun violence.

“Obviously (the mayor) is doing it to antagonize the president,” a source told the Post. “This is what he is concerned about while the city burns. What an amateur politician.”

Earlier this month, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser renamed a street in front of the White House "Black Lives Matter Plaza" and had the slogan painted in huge yellow letters on the roadway in an apparent rebuke of  Trump's response to protests over police brutality.

The Post reported de Blasio came up with the idea a few days after Bowser had the slogan painted on the street. The mayor’s plan was reportedly finalized this week.

It is one of seven murals that will be popping up across all five boroughs, according to the newspaper.
