Trump Tower evacuated due to suspicious package
27 December, 2016
The lobby of Trump Tower has reportedly been evacuated due to a suspicious package, the New York Police Department has said. President-elect Donald Trump is not on the premises.
The New York City police and fire departments are on the scene.
While the evacuation and investigation were underway in New York, Trump sent an unrelated tweet out about the election.
The area where the bag was found in Trump Tower is in the public space. This is not where inside the protected perimeter or living area.
The all-clear was given about 40 minutes after the evacuation began, the NYPD tweeted.
President Obama campaigned hard (and personally) in the very important swing states, and lost.The voters wanted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
