The Trump administration has been obsessed with building up architecture as a way to improve the U.S. economy, but now, with the election of President Donald Trump, that obsession is becoming a problem.
In 2017, Trump declared that “architecture is our country,” and he has made his vision for building the country’s future an overarching theme of his presidency.
He wants to see skyscrapers, parks, museums, and shopping malls as well as the nation’s bridges, railways, and airports rebuilt and expanded.
His administration has taken the lead on this project, with new construction, tax incentives, and subsidies aimed at the nation.
But as we’ve seen with Trump’s infrastructure plans, there’s a major problem with Trump Tower being the best place to build a new skyscraper: it’s just not built right.
The Trump administration is building only four of the world’s most expensive and most luxurious buildings, according to an analysis of government records by architecture critic Ben Davenport at the Center for Architecture & Urban Research.
Only six of the towers Trump wants to demolish, along with a handful of others, are actually built.
That’s just a fraction of the buildings Trump has said he wants to build.
That means that while the Trump administration wants to tear down buildings that are already obsolete, it doesn’t have the infrastructure to do so, according the Center’s analysis.
“The Trump Administration is planning a massive infrastructure spending spree that will take years to complete, and will ultimately be the undoing of decades of hard-fought urban planning and infrastructure projects in the United States,” Davenports wrote in a letter to The Washington Post.
Trump wants to make building more attractive for people of all backgrounds, including Latinos and African Americans.
He’s also proposing to eliminate the Federal Buildings Act, a law that protects heritage buildings, which allows local governments to demolishes historic buildings to make way for new development.
Trump also has proposed a massive tax break to attract investment to his proposed wall along the U-S-Mexico border, but that plan is being opposed by many Republican lawmakers, who are concerned that it will create a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
The White House did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post’s request for comment.
The Trump Tower isn’t the only Trump-branded building that isn’t built.
In 2018, the Trump Organization’s tax returns showed that it received more than $4.9 million in charitable contributions from foreign nationals.
This included more than 1,000 contributions from countries with ties to Saudi Arabia and Russia, and more than 800 from nations with a history of terrorism.
Trump has been accused of benefiting from these contributions in the past, and he denies any wrongdoing.
“This was not a donation to support me.
This was a donation from a foreign government,” he told CNN in a 2016 interview.
Even though Trump has pledged to build the world in the future, many experts believe that the building will never be completed, according with the New York Times.
“Trump Tower is a major piece of his vision.
It is part of the building, and that is the building that he wants us to look forward to building,” Davison wrote in his letter.
“But it is not the building.
It’s not what Trump wants it to be.
The building is not a building.”
