Trump Tower was also the setting for Trump's reality TV show, "The Apprentice", and the headquarters of his presidential campaign. Residential condominiums comprise floors 30 through 68.

The Fifth Avenue building has hit the headlines since Trump took office over the amount spent on security for the president's trips to the tower and his time living there prior to moving into the White House.
