Pretty much everyone who lives in or around New York City hates midtown (except for the frat boys that rent there). Now, New Yorkers will have one more reason to avoid everything between 20th and 60th street: Melania and Barron Trump will be continuing to live at Trump Tower and not at the White House.
The news comes from an insider over at The New York Post who says that “Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign ... The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum.”
“[Trump Tower] is going to become the White House of New York,” added Jim Reese, a former Delta Force commander and president of TigerSwan, a global security company based in North Carolina. “The Secret Service is going to have to keep that whole area cordoned off so that some wacko can’t get close and detonate a car bomb.”
I might have been joking before about this being a nuisance for residents, but the traffic and security concerns for the city are real. “[The Secret Service] may consider going as far as wanting to shut down Fifth avenue in that block,” a police source toldThe Post.
"This is a big challenge and an unprecedented challenge, but we are committed to making it work," Mayor Bill de Blasio said. "The number one imperative here is safety and security."
Yes, that's right, an entire city will be made less safe because of the bond between Melania and her 10-year-old son.
Just another day in Trump's America!
