A group in New York City is being discouraged from displays celebrating Donald Trump's election victory.

According to the New York Post, "The FDNY has ordered firefighters to not hang pictures of President-elect Donald Trump in firehouses or on their trucks, angering some members of the department."

The mandate was reportedly triggered after some residents lodged complaints over seeing a Trump mask on a Brooklyn unit's truck.

Other items that are said to be included in the ban are T-shirts and other decorations with the president-elect's name or image.
