Members of the United Steelworkers union brought their traveling “bat light” to Chicago overnight Friday to project their endorsement of Joe Biden onto Trump Tower.

The words “Biden-Harris” were shown in blazing blue letters over President Donald Trump’s name on his hotel and condo building overlooking the Chicago River at 401 N. Wabash Ave.

The endorsement also made appearances on Wrigley Field, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Theatre.

A representative for the Trump Organization could not be reached for comment Saturday.
