Developer Aby Rosen has come out with yet another strong statement against presidential hopeful Donald Trump — this time on social media.

Wake up America

As The Real Deal reported last month, Rosen plastered a massive billboard on a development site he owns at 337 Lafayette Street urging New Yorkers to “Vote Your Conscience.” The poster is a nod to former presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s refusal to endorse Trump. Speaking at the Republican National Convention last month, Cruz instead urged Americans to vote according to their “consciences.”

The statement was particularly noteworthy because Rosen is widely known to be a business partner of Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law.

Seemingly undeterred, Rosen posted a new anti-Trump statement to his Instagram account, again with the message, “Wake up America.”
