Man hanging off side of Trump Tower demanding to speak to president
A man who is hanging off the side of Trump Tower from a rope Sunday evening is demanding to speak to President Donald Trump.
The man, who is in his 20s, has been dangling from tower’s lower rooftop deck since about 5:15 p.m., asking to speak to the president and trying to get his message to the media, according to Chicago Police spokesman Tom Ahern. A negotiator is currently on the deck trying to get the man down.
Police have blocked off traffic around Trump Tower, which overlooks the Chicago River at 401 N. Wabash Ave. A crowd of onlookers gathered across from the tower, some wondering if it was part of a stunt for the upcoming Batman movie, which has been shooting in the city recently.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
