The man seen climbing Trump Tower in New York City on Wednesday may have posted his intentions online a day before, BoingBoing reported.
“I am an independent researcher seeking a private audience with you to discuss an important matter,” says the man posting the clip, who identifies himself as “Leven Thumps.” “I guarantee that it is in your interest to honor this request.”
As Reuters reported, the man used suction cups to make his way up the 58-story building for two hours before being pulled inside by police.
“The reason I climbed your tower was to get your attention,” he says in the video. “If I had sought this through conventional means, I would be much less likely to have success, because you are a busy man with many responsibilities. I’ll get my contact information to your campaign so that if you are interested, you can respond.”
The one-minute video concludes with “Thumps” saying, “Be sure to get out and vote for Mr. Trump in the 2016 election.”
