Someone renamed Donald Trump’s midtown Manhattan building to “Dump Trump” on Google Maps.
Last week, Google Maps announced new features that will allow users to determine how busy a place is in real time. In addition, Google Maps added a new feature called “Areas of Interest”. On the Maps application users will now see “hot spots”. These are popular areas, calculated by Google’s algorithm. Since the 2016 Presidential election, one of the most popular areas in New York City is the Trump Tower.
But on Saturday, Google Map users discovered the Trump Tower had a new name. In fact, the Fifth Avenue Midtown Manhattan building was now called “Dump Tower”.

Google later corrected the “Dump Trump” name and changed it back to “Trump Tower”.
Trump Tower is a 58-story skyscraper located on Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. At the moment, Trump Tower is the headquarters for the Trump Organization and residence of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. Trump Tower broke ground in 1979 and was completed four years later. Now, the Trump Tower features 13 office floors, 60 stories, and 40 condominium floors. Some of the world’s biggest celebrities, stores and athletes reside in the Trump Tower including: Bruce Willis, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Gucci’s flagship store. In addition, several famous celebrities used to live in the Trump tower such as Michael Jackson.
Since the 2016 presidential election results, the Trump Tower has become a focal point for protests against President-elect Donald Trump. Many celebrities including Madonna, Cher and Lady Gaga took part in protests against Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has not commented on “Dump Trump” but, recently focused his attention on the the pending Presidential election recount. Green Party’s Jill Stein announced a plan to review ballots in three swing states. Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced they would support Stein’s recount. Trump went on Twitter dismissing the recount.
