Trump did dabble in building demolition to build Trump tower and destroyed art work that he promised to save. Until it became inconvenient.
And the promise to preserve the grillwork and reliefs? "On his orders, the demolition workers cut up the grillwork with acetylene torches," Crews "jackhammered the friezes, dislodged them with crowbars, and pushed the remains inside the building, where they fell to the floor and shattered in a million pieces."
The Trump Organization disputed these claims through a spokesperson named John Baron.
