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 the tower’s 16th-floor balcony since about 5:30 p.m., asking to speak to the president and trying to get his message to the media, according to Chicago Police spokesman Tom Ahern. Police officers at the scene said they believe the man is using a climbing harness.
The man has threatened to kill himself, Chicago police said. A negotiator is currently on the deck trying to get the man down, according to Ahern.
On Friday, the United Steelworkers had ‘shine a ‘Biden-Harris’ projection on Trump Tower in Chicago.‘
The “bat light” endorsement also made an appearance on Wrigley Field, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Theatre during its time in the city.
