Trump can’t rent riverfront space in Chicago — with or without his name

Published

on

President Donald Trump continues to fail at renting the first three floors of Trump Tower in Chicago,” Crain’s Chicago Business reports.

The 64,000-square-foot riverfront space has sat mostly empty since the property opened a decade ago, though the Trump Organization and its brokers have rebooted their marketing efforts multiple times to attract tenants,” Crain’s noted.

The last attempt at marketing the space removed Trump’s name from the brochure.

“Earlier this year, the name was conspicuously absent from a marketing brochure for the largely vacant commercial space in Donald Trump’s 92-story skyscraper along the Chicago River, “Crain’s noted. “The yuge (sic) TRUMP sign on the side of the building was even missing from photos in the brochure, which identified the property simply by its address, 401 N. Wabash Ave.”

“But a new brochure for the riverfront space leaves no doubt who built the high-rise, identifying it clearly as Trump International Hotel & Tower,” Crain’s reported. “That big, screaming sign? It’s there in the photos, too.”

“It’s not clear that the new brochure will help brokers generate interest in the commercial space on the lower three floors of the building,” Crain’s added.

It has also raised concerns Trump sought to strong-arm Ukraine into providing damaging information on the president's possible 2020 challenger, which would represent dangerous foreign meddling in the US election -- similar to the interference blamed on Russia in 2016, when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

angry Brett Kavanaugh

Old wounds were reopened this week when a New York Times article, written by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, focused on Deborah Ramirez — one of the women who, in 2018, accused U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. And Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, in a USA Today op-ed published on Friday, argued that Kavanaugh wasn’t adequately vetted as he should have been.

Published

Masses of children skipped school Friday to join a global strike against climate change that teen activist Greta Thunberg said was "only the beginning" in the fight against environmental disaster.

Some four million people filled city streets around the world, organizers said, in what was billed as the biggest ever protest against the threat posed to the planet by rising temperatures.

Youngsters and adults alike chanted slogans and waved placards in demonstrations that started in Asia and the Pacific, spread across Africa, Europe and Latin America, before culminating in the United States where Thunberg rallied.
