Update: And now, a comment from the Trump Organization. "This recent change is simply the enforcement of a pre-existing agreement which has been in place for years," said Amanda Miller, vice president of marketing. "It was mutually agreed upon." Cool!
Original story: Tired of having to tell people they live in buildings associated with our new groper in chief, 600 residents of the three rental towers in Trump Place successfully petitioned to have his name stripped from their homes.
"We're all very excited and thrilled, and it's about time," five-year resident Marjorie Jacobs said to the Associated Press. "We're disgusted with the results of the presidency." (The online petition began circulating after the "grab 'em by the pussy" video was released.)
While Trump's press team hasn't yet commented, executives of the building management company said they were hopeful a "neutral building identity" might hold more appeal to current and future residents. The gold lettering will be replaced with the buildings' addresses.
