Trump Diplomacy

Donald Trump has some New Yorkers, such as Walter Cronkite, up in arms with his proposal to build a 90-story skyscraper near the United Nations (in Walter’s very own neighborhood.) U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan has complained that the tower would cast a “colossal shadow” over Manhattan’s ‘s East Side, something the city should never have allowed — which, in turn, prompted Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to snap back and criticize Annan. (Hizzoner doesn’t take kindly to bad notices.) The mayor said he was most angered that Annan “never bothered to check” how the city approves skyscrapers before making his comments.
