Trump Tower residents mull selling amid protests: report

They're having a difficult time getting in and out of the building

It’s a hard-knock life for the residents of Trump Tower right now, and some are considering jumping ship.

Protesters are making it difficult for residents to get in and out of the building, where the president-elect lives in a triplex penthouse, the New York Post reported. Security at the Fifth Avenue tower is ramped up. So, according to the Post, some residents are mulling selling their units.

“They can’t get into their own homes without being stopped and frisked and having to show ID,” one broker told the Post. “These are wealthy people. They don’t need this, and they can’t take it any longer. They no longer want to stay there. Some of them are already planning on moving out, and they’ll decide later whether or not they want to sell.”

Before Tuesday’s election, the Secret Service warned that if Trump TRData LogoTINY won the election, he shouldn’t stay at his penthouse at Trump Tower when he visits New York. At the time, officials told the Post that the building’s security measures weren’t president-ready. [NYP]Kathryn Brenzel
