Donald Trump Arriving at Trump Tower in New York City
Dear Commons Community,
Former President Donald Trump was spotted outside Trump Tower Sunday night in his first visit back to New York City since leaving office.
Trump pulled up to the Midtown skyscraper where he stays while in Manhattan just before 9 p.m.
He was seated in the backseat of a black SUV. Upon his arrival, he waved to one lone supporter who was across the street next to the media.
Yesterday, a handful of supporters had gathered outside Trump Tower with signs and flags, as well as a group of counter-protesters with a giant inflatable rat dressed like Trump and “Arrest Trump” banners.
One demonstrator in New York yesterday held up a “Florida man go home” sign.
The NYPD last month began removing some of the barriers in front of Trump Tower, which were erected four years ago when Trump entered the White House.
Born in Queens, Trump, who became a real estate developer in Manhattan, switched his legal residency to his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, in October 2019.
To say the least, Trump has become persona non grata in the Big Apple.
