Terrible tragedy.

I see Trump is as classy as ever. Not a word about the person that died, but a shout out to himself and the quality of the building. Yuck.

One death now at the tower of terror. Lying Trump said it was a well built building. Then how come fire/smoke detectors and sprinkler systems did not detect and suppress this fire, and alert authorities before someone was killed and at least one unit destroyed?

"Fire at Trump Tower is out. Very confined (well built building). Firemen (and women) did a great job. THANK YOU!" Trump tweeted.

Is DT going to Tweet for every fires in the US from now on or only related businesses?

Give it time, I know you don’t like the President so much, but relax and give it time. Quality-wise the building is as sound as every other giant high rise in NYC.

One death now at the tower of terror.

You mean, Tower of London.

Lying Trump said it was a well built building.

747 and 787 are well built planes and yet, they have problems from time to time and since we’re human, the things we make can have flaws here and there.

Then how come fire/smoke detectors and sprinkler systems did not detect and suppress this fire, and alert authorities before someone was killed and at least one unit destroyed?

Maybe there was a problem with the people that do the maintenance. Sad, but that does happen.

Todd Brassner, 67 art dealer, bankrupt (2015), behind on his $2.5 million mortgage.

No sprinkler system in the tower block but it held well against the fire and the building wasn't evacuated.

No mention of the victim though.

Sizable donation needed to the NYFD.

Typical, trump and his Twitter responses!

There wasn't any mention of a victim by Prez because it wasn't known at the time.

But I have to wonder, is an accidental fire, in a private apartment, outside Japan, really news for this site?

The Trump Tower did not have a sprinkler system. Trump fought against the bill to require it, then claimed he would spend three million to install a system, then never did install one. This is the second fire there this year.
