NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump's business has been fined $10,000 for installing two kiosks in, and removing a bench from, the lobby of Trump Tower. The city Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings released Hearing Officer Clive Morrick's Aug. 12 decision Wednesday.
For months, city buildings inspectors have sought to enforce a unique permit governing Trump's Manhattan skyscraper. Trump was given special permission to build his Fifth Avenue building bigger in exchange for making the atrium open to the public daily. But buildings officials found the Republican presidential nominee violated those rules by removing the 22-foot marble bench and installing kiosks selling Trump merchandise.
The kiosks have since been removed, and city officials confirmed the bench was reinstalled Aug. 3. The Trump campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
