Who is the man who was arrested climbing Trump Tower?

On Wednesday a man was arrested for climbing Trump Tower.

  • The man got on the building from the 5th floor.

  • He was using a suction cup device it appears that he made.

  • A video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday claims to be the man responsible for climbing Trump Tower.

  • The climb lasted for over 2-hours.

Right now multiple media outlets are livestreaming a man climbing Trump Tower with a contraption he appears to have made out of suction cups.

The climb has been going on for over 2-hours now, as police continue to make attempts to trap the renegade climber. Police do not feel at this time there is any reason to believe the man is armed. Police believe the man to be a stunt guy.

As people around the country watch the climb, many are wondering who this guy is, and why is he climbing Trump Tower. A video on YouTube may explain that.

A YouTube user by the name Leven Thumps uploaded a video to his channel titled, “Message to Mr. Trump (why I climbed your tower).”

The video starts with a man in a hoodie who says, “Hello Mr. Trump.” He goes on to apologize for his appearance since he “will not know how many people will watch this,” and he did not want to be “recognizable.”

The man claims to be an “independent researcher.” He claims to want to have a discussion with the presidential candidate over a serious matter.

“The reason I climbed your tower was to get your attention. If I had sought this via conventional means, I would be much less likely to have success because you are a busy man with many responsibilities.”

The man then offers his contact information to Trump’s campaign managers and ends the video with a vote for Trump endorsement.

The man was finally arrested, but police have yet to release his identity. Police removed windows from Trump Tower so that they could bring the man in as he climbed past.
