Gold capital letters spelling the president-elect's last name were removed from a high-rise condominium complex in Manhattan Wednesday after hundreds of people signed a petition to have the building drop the moniker.
Crews were seen removing the gold-blazoned name on the facade of the building near Lincoln Square formerly known as Trump Place.
