Trump Reacts to Three-Alarm Fire in New York Tower: ‘Well Built Building’

As firefighters responded to the three alarm fire that erupted inside Trump Tower in New York on Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to announce the blaze had been extinguished.

The president thanked the “Firemen (and women)” for their work, and in a Trumpian flair, boasted that the fire was “confined” because his trademark tower is a “well built building.”

The cause of the fire on the 50th floor of Trump Tower was not immediately clear. The fire department said on Twitter that no one was injured in the blaze, but police shut the block down in order to work on putting it out.
