New York City residents have launched a war to remove Republican nominee Donald Trump’s name from Trump Place.
Almost 81 residents living at the apartment complex have signed a petition to remove Trump’s name from the building, reports the New York Post.
“He’s a jerk. I don’t respect him. I don’t want to be in a building that’s blaring his name. His name used to be gold — but now its fools gold,” Robert Stern, a resident at the high-rise complex, told the New York Post.
The petition, named “Dump The TRUMP Name,” states that residents are “embarrassed” to live in a building with Trump’s name on it.
“Trump’s appalling treatment of women, his history of racism, his attacks on immigrants, his mockery of the disabled, his tax avoidance, his outright lying — all are antithetical to the values we and our families believe in,” the petition reads.
Because of Trump’s actions, the petition urges Equity Residential to take back its leasing agreement with Trump.
“Just as celebrities have their endorsements rescinded for bad behavior, Equity Residential should rescind its leasing arrangement with Donald Trump, whose behavior has surely tarnished the Equity Residential brand,” the petition demands.
An unnamed woman said she was mortified to live in the building now.
“It’s embarrassing to live in the building. I’ve had lots of friends make comments about it. My kids are so disgusted with Donald Trump that they find it viscerally uncomfortable to live in a building that has his name on it,” the woman said.
