Residents at ‘Trump Place’ Property in New York City Vote to Remove ‘Trump Place’ Sign From the Front of the Building

Ouch.

As someone who once claimed (falsely) that he was the “biggest real estate developer in New York,” President Donald Trump should not have to think twice about the buildings his company manages keeping his name.

Unfortunately, that has not been the case. Trump’s name will be stripped from the facade of another Trump Place building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

More than half of the residents voted in favor of the measure and the condo board approved it. “Accordingly, arrangements are being made to have the ‘Trump Place’ signage removed from the building façade,” a condo board email read.

A date has not yet been set for removal.

“In addition to ditching the Trump signs,” HuffPost reported on Thursday, “the buildings have trashed Trump-embossed lobby mats and Trump-branded attire for concierges and doormen.”

The high-rise, located at 120 Riverside Boulevard, is part of a larger complex called Trump City, which the president sold before construction was completed in the 1990s.

Trump’s name was emblazoned on the buildings as part of the Trump Organization’s management contract.

Womp womp.

Boy do people have feelings.

Suggestions for new names include:

Originally, there were six Trump Place towers in the development bearing the president’s name. Once the Trump name is removed from 120 Riverside, there will be only one – 220 Riverside Boulevard.
