The Trump Organization was formally evicted from the Trump International Hotel in Panama on Monday morning — and the building’s owner wasted no time in taking down Trump’s name.
As ABC News reports, Trump Organization staffers were forcibly removed by police from the building on Monday amid a fight with owner Orestes Fintiklis over management of the hotel.
“I am the owner,” Fintiklis taunted to staffers as they were led out of the building. “Love and peace!”
Fintiklis then sat down at the hotel’s piano in its lobby and played a song that included the lyrics, “Fascism will not prevail.”
And as the final humiliation, Fintiklis ordered Trump’s name to be ripped off from the outside of the hotel — check out ABC News’ video footage of Trump’s name being torn down below.

Here are 3 winners and 3 losers from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.
His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.
Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice, and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.
Michael Bloomberg ‘lost everything’ in Las Vegas: MSNBC analyst
Senior editor for "The Root," Jason Johnson, concluded that the biggest loser of the Democratic debate in Las Vegas Wednesday was Michael Bloomberg, but not merely because of his debate performance.
"The big new name was going to be Michael Bloomberg," he said. "This was probably the most expensive night in Vegas I've ever seen. He lost everything. This guy has spent $320 million. He had the opportunity to stand on stage, and appear to be an equal, and he looked bored. He looked disenchanted. He stumbled over obvious questions that anybody would have anticipated about sexual harassment and stop and frisk. I thought it was a bad night for him."
