The United Steelworkers beamed a “Biden Harris” sign onto the Trump Tower in Chicago, Illinois early Saturday. 

USW posted photos of a “batlight” the union cast in support of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris on the Trump International and Hotel & Tower Chicago on Saturday morning.

In September, the union kicked off a “batlight” tour where they use an outdoor projector to shine images on buildings after dark encouraging voter turnout among workers, according to a press release from USW. A spokesperson for USW told Business Insider that the “batlight” on Trump tower was a part of the “batlight” tour encouraging people to “have a plan to vote” and promoting their “endorsement of Joe Biden.”

In 2014, the Trump Tower installed a huge, illuminated “Trump” sign in front of the 98-story tall building, which is situated in the popular tourist designation of the Chicago River. The giant logo stirred controversy from the Chicago public and then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel called it an “architecturally tasteless sign.”

A spokesperson for the Trump International and Hotel  & Tower Chicago did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
