New Hampshire State Police say someone smashed a granite block inscribed with President Donald Trump's name early Friday.

The block is part of a display along the sidewalk outside the State Library that showcases winners of the New Hampshire presidential primary.

Trump's block was the last one in the line, right after Sen. Bernie Sander's, who won the Democratic presidential primary in 2016.

Police say the block was smashed and scattered on the grass and street. The vandalism occurred sometime between 4:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., according to the report.

Last month, a man used a pickax to destroy Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The West Hollywood City Council later approved a resolution seeking the star's removal, citing the president's disturbing treatment of women.
