Anti-Trump vandalism has been spotted in Phoenix following a controversial week for the president.

ABC15 crews came across a spray painted wall Friday night near 13th Avenue and Camelback Road that read, "Trump = Satan."

The president came under fire for his comments following the violent clashes in Charlottesville last weekend where he slammed the "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides." 

Phoenix police say media partners brought the incident to their attention. 

As of Saturday morning, city crews located the vandalism and painted over it. 

President Trump is scheduled to speak at the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
