One man was drawing a huge police response as he attempted to scale Trump Tower using giant suction cups.
An unidentified long-haired man in baseball cap and climbing gear was spotted Wednesday evening scaling Trump’s highest-profile property and where the headquarters of his presidential campaign is located.
Law enforcement broke windows, raised a ladder and cut through a vent in attempts to stop the climber.
Police hope the climber would become tired before reaching the top of the building, reports CNN.
Officers also inflated a giant cushion on the street and an elevated level of the building.
The climber’s journey was captured on social media and climbed up to the 21st floor.

Trump was not in the building at the time of the climb, but campaigning in Virginia.
