Award-winning Architectual Critic on Trump Tower sign

It appears Donald Trump’s 20-foot-high sign on his Trump Tower is here to stay.

Mayor Emanuel calls it tasteless.

Trump calls it magnificent.

But what matters, is that the sign was approved by city zoning officials, and by the Trump Tower’s Alderman.

The Mayor’s office is looking at legislation to outlaw any more giant signs on the city’s skyline.

Blair Kamin, the Pulitzer Prize winning architectural critic for the Chicago Tribune, has been very vocal about his distaste for the Trump Sign.

He joins the team over the phone to speak on the topic

    There are plenty of signs around Chicago that you can point fingers at. This story is a lot about nothing.
    Maybe someone should thank Trump for investing in Chicago. He can very easily go somewhere else and not be critized by our locals.

    I honestly don't care what an "award-winning" architect thinks. I like it and I think people should find something else to complain about as John said.

    The fact that Trump is critical of the Obama administration and Rahm is the former White House Secretary under Obama has nothing to do with it, of course. Legislate, ban, and control everything you don't like out of existence and forget that America is a free country.
