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.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."

Maxine Waters calls for Trump’s Cabinet initiate the 25th Amendment ‘before this would-be dictator takes us all down’

Published

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for Donald Trump to be removed from office on Friday.

"Is there one brave member of Trump’s cabinet who would move to initiate the 25th Amendment to remove him from office?" Waters asked on the president's favorite social networking platform.

The 25th Amendment would allow Vice President Mike Pence to ascend to the presidency if a majority of Trump's cabinet declares "the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

"Now is the time to save our country before this would-be dictator takes us all down!" Waters warned.
