A park in New York’s Brooklyn borough was defaced with ‘swastika’ signs and the words ‘Go Trump’, police said.

The children’s playground inside the Brooklyn Heights park was marred with the anti-semitic symbols, city council member Brad Lander said on Friday.

“Yet more hatred and anti-Semitism from Trump supporters,” Lander tweeted.

The offensive graffiti comes after a number of swastikas were discovered in locations across the city, including a sidewalk in Crown Heights and a subway car, the New York Post reported.

Local officials said they will hold a rally at the park on Sunday to denounce “hate and intimidation”.
