Aides insisted that the story was meaningless.But in reality, this was the week when Trump was confronted in brutal fashion by the limits of his power, or even his ability to project that power.Tuesday saw him boasting in front of the United Nations about what he called a historic peak in American military and economic might.Yet diplomats in the UN hall were all too … [Read more...] about Embattled Trump Leaves New York Angry, Bitter

POLITICS 04/21/2018 06:00 am ET The high-rise with the stunning views of Central Park has become a money trap for some residents. For one man, it became a fire trap, too. By S.V. Date NEW YORK ― It’s been almost two decades, but Jerome Rose still remembers his one and only brush with Donald Trump like it was yesterday. A fire in Rose’s South Park Tower apartment building had just killed four of his neighbors. He was visiting the owners of the Upper West Side high-rise to invite them to a memorial service for the victims when the phone rang. “I overheard that Trump was on the line,” Rose said recently.

That event, which was reported by The New York Times last July, has since moved to the center of investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the presidential campaign. In the interview conducted by Senate committee staffers, Trump Jr. left open the possibility that his father might have … [Read more...] about Trump Jr. Left Open Possibility That Dad Knew Of Trump Tower Meeting At The Time
POLITICS 06/28/2018 05:45 am ET Properties owned by the families of President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner rank among the biggest contributors to the city's carbon footprint. By Alexander C. Kaufman The 90-floor tower nicknamed the “Oligarch’s Erection” is the gaudy centerpiece of Manhattan’s Billionaire’s Row ― a place where a corrupt Nigerian oil tycoon set a $51 million record for the biggest foreclosure in the city’s history in 2017 and a Silicon Valley tech mogul bought the most expensive home ever sold in New York for $100.5 million in 2018. But 157 West 57th Street is part of another, equally exclusive club that includes Trump Tower, the Trump International Hotel & Tower, the Kushner family’s 666 Fifth Avenue, the ritzy Baccarat Hotel and Residences and 15 Central Park West, where Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein lives. That club is the biggest contributors to carbon dioxide pollution in New York, where … [Read more...] about 2 Percent Of New York City’s Buildings Emit Half Its CO2 Pollution. They’re Luxury Towers.
