I don't see why there is a picture of Donald Trump.

How about a picture of the building? Or the guy who was responsible for making sure there is no falling lumber? Or the truck that it landed on? Maybe the postal worker?

I can pretty much guarantee that Donald Trump isn't up there staking up the lumber.

Oh I get it. He is an icon and you are attempting to sensationalize this otherwise routine news.

But of course. Could we expect anything less from the media.

At that level of business being sued is just as cost of operating. You really thing he is involved in the day to day operation of what goes on at a construction site?

Once again Trump trumped the media. He got a freebe picture in the media with his god awful hair style. The construction company must be bonded and insured and the city inspectors are on top of this construction project what more could we ask for?
The inspectors are getting paid so they must be doing their job.

This project has been a problem since they started. It may be the "cost of doing business" but that does nto excuse sloppiness. There have been 4 reported incidents, and a few other unofficial incidents. People are logically concerned that at some point someone is going be killed by debris. Typical of NY contractors coming in and doing a project in CT. Even the Mayor admitted so last week.

Probably not,but it is his building being put up.But after four incidents at the site,I would probably make an appearence and find out what the hell is going on.Whether your Donald Trump or Joe Public,it is in the end YOUR building and your responsibility.He is putting up the money for it after all.Just because hes worth billions,doesnt mean he should shrug it off and chalk it up to day to day operations.
