Trump Sets His Sights on Israel’s Skyline

Developer/reality television star Donald Trump announced last week that he is planning to build a new tower in Israel.

The 70-story edifice, which is to be built on the Ramat Gan site now occupied by the Elite candy company, would be the country’s tallest — a distinction that, since 2003, has belonged to Ramat Gan’s City Gate skyscraper.

“We are developing a signature landmark property so impressive that it will set a new standard for luxury condominium living in Israel,” Trump said with characteristic modesty. “I am confident that Israel’s future can only go one direction, and that is up.”
