This is what Donald Trump's proposed World Trade Center design looks like: Pretty much like the old one. The Daily News points out that Trump's model was on MSNBC last week, and that engineer Ken Gardner and architect Harry Belton's model and plans can be seen at MakeNYNYAgain.com. No joke, Trump is serious about hating Freedom Tower. Gardner is a Trump crony from plnning his tower in Chicago. Gothamist is reeling from this Trump chestnut: "Why are we building this monstrous 'skeleton' known as Freedom Tower? If Freedom Tower is built, the terrorists win." UGH. What a cheap way to rile up people, because the terrorists win when capitalists act stupid, okay?
In their exclusive, NY Post has excerpts of a letter that original Freedom Tower architect Daniel Libeskind wrote to Trump, taking potshots at Trump's hair and explaining who (Libey or David Childs) designed what parts of the pro-terrorist Freedom Tower. We'd like a Libeskind-Trump cage match, please.
