Trump Tower climber cor­ralled

China Daily (USA) - - ACROSS AMERICA -

Of­fi­cers from the NYPD clutch a man climb­ing up the Trump Tower in New York on Wed­nes­day. The man was climb­ing for more than two hours us­ing what looked like suc­tion cups and a har­ness. The 58-story tower on Fifth Av­enue is head­quar­ters for the elec­tion cam­paign of Don­ald Trump, the US Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee. As the man climbed the tower’s glass ex­te­rior, po­lice re­moved large win­dow panels above him. The climber shifted his route sev­eral times in what ap­peared to be an at­tempt to evade the po­lice. “The rea­son I climbed your tower was to get your at­ten­tion,” the man be­lieved to be the climber says in a YouTube video and then en­cour­ages peo­ple to vote for Trump.
