Trump ordered braille removed from elevators in his building

Political Wire = “President Trump in the early 1980s asked an architect to remove Braille from planned residential elevators in Trump Tower in New York, the Washington Post reports.

Barbara Res, a former vice president in charge of construction, made the allegation in a New York Daily News op-ed.

“According to Res’s account, ...Trump told the architect to ‘get rid of it,’ and the architect resisted, saying doing so would be against the law.”

Said Trump: “Get rid of the fucking Braille. No blind people are going to live in Trump Tower. Just do it.”
