City Council Says ‘So Long’ To Donald Trump Street Sign

The Chicago City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to remove a Trump Plaza sign located outside the Republican nominee's 98-story skyscraper.

Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd Ward) introduced an ordinance to remove the sign after Donald Trump characterized Chicago as a “war-torn country” in the first presidential debate.

“After all of the comments that Mr. Trump has made, we feel that repealing that sign is appropriate, that there is no reason to honor him in our great city,” said Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno (1st Ward) at a City Council meeting last month.

Before the measure could be voted on, police said a second honorary Trump sign was stolen last month.
