A man hurled eggs at Trump Tower in Manhattan Sunday night.

Police told WPIX Massachusetts tourist Travis Moonschein egged Trump Towers at around 10:40 p.m.

An NYPD spokesman said the 36-year-old Moonschein was not considered a threat to President Trump, but law enforcement stopped him after he threw several eggs against the building. Trump was not inside the building at the time.

Moonschein, reportedly an artist, was later charged with criminal tampering and littering.

The Trump Tower incident happened in the wake of vandals who destroyed the greens at Trump’s golf course in Palos Verdes, California, Sunday morning.

Closer to home, an intruder was arrested late Friday night after he scaled the perimeter fence of the White House. Trump was on site at the time, but the suspect was immediately apprehended by Secret Service.

“The Service did a fantastic job. It was a troubled person. It was very sad,” Trump told reporters Saturday afternoon during a meeting with Cabinet members.
