Trump towers


Just when you thought the World Trade Center site in New York could not become any more of a mess, in walks everyone's favourite American business mogul, Donald Trump.

Last week, Ivana's billionaire ex-husband stepped into the row with some constructive architectural criticism. Daniel Libeskind's plans are 'the worst pile of crap architecture I've ever seen in my life', said the man with the most intriguing hairdo in the business world. According to reports, Trump wants landowner Larry Silverstein to rebuild the old twin towers design as an exact replica, apart from one subtle change: the pair of towers will be one foot higher. Oh, the symbolism. 'If we rebuild the World Trade Centre in the form of a skeleton, the terrorists win, ' claimed Trump. In Astragal's opinion he should stick to hosting reality TV shows.
