Lincoln memorial was defaced by protesters

Lincoln memorial was not defaced by protesters, but the steps around the memorial were vandalized.

According to tweets by the National Mall National Park Service, reports of the Lincoln Memorial being 'defaced' by protesters are untrue. The National Mall NPS confirmed that no damage was caused to the Lincoln Memorial or statue. However, the steps in front of the memorial and few statues in the surrounding areas were vandalized using graffiti. Therefore, the rumors and pictures showing the Lincoln Memorial as defaced are untrue.
