The Conservative Tribune reports, The federal government issued a massive restriction on Trump Tower early this morning. No one saw this coming, but extreme times call for extreme measures.
The skies above Trump Tower are now a little more secure.
The Federal Aviation Administration declared an immediate no-fly zone over the Midtown Manhattan skyscraper where President-elect Donald Trump works and lives with his family.
The security measure at the Fifth Ave. building will be in place until Jan. 21, 2017, the day Trump will be sworn into the White House.
The FAA’s official orders designates “VIP Movement” as the reason for securing the 2,999-foot high and 2-mile raid zone above the Trump Tower, according to a release from the FAA.
Some aircraft are excluded from the no-fly zone, including those operated by the U.S. Secret Service, law enforcement and emergency response officials, according to the FAA.
The FAA routinely puts no-fly zones in place during high-security events in Manhattan, including when the United Nations General Assembly convenes in Midtown.
Sources told the Daily News that securing the towering building will be a nightmare due to the constant influx of tourists to the Manhattan attraction.
“Obviously, Trump Tower is not like a house in the suburbs or the country,” one source told the News.
The Secret Service would not immediately comment on matters of security.
