Donald Trump was spotted leaving Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday afternoon, shortly after denying a report that he was so frustrated with the way Saturday Night Live mocked him and his presidency that he asked if the Justice Department or other government agency could investigate the show.

The former president called the report in The Daily Beast 'fake news.'

The 75-year-old was pictured leaving his Manhattan residence in a suit and tie, laden with Louis Vuitton luggage and Gucci shopping bags.

For the past 14 years, Gucci has leased 48,667 feet at the base of Trump Tower, making it the building’s biggest commercial tenant. In 2020 Gucci renegotiated a reduced rent and agreed to extend its lease beyond 2026.

A man who dangled himself off the 16th floor balcony of Trump Tower in Chicago and threatened to cut his rope unless he could speak to the president has been taken into custody after more than 13 hours. The man, who is in his 20s and identified himself as a Black Lives Matter protester, had been hanging off a 16th-floor balcony of the tower since around 5:30pm Sunday. He had been requesting to speak directly with the president and to get his message to the media, CPD spokesman Tom Ahern said.

Person seems to hang from side of Trump Tower in Chicago while a few other oversee the person. It is unclear why they are on the side of the building.

Trump is spending the summer at his Bedminster golf course in New Jersey, having relocated from Florida for the summer.

The suspect who allegedly robbed a Gucci bag at Trump Tower . The suspect walked into the 5th Avenue store at about 5:20 p.m. on Oct. 2 and nimbly pocketed the pricey bag , authorities said. Surveillance cameras caught him on video as he walked out, cops said. The thief is described as man with a bowl haircut, who was last seen wearing dark glasses.

After Trump took office as president in 2017, fans signed a petition urging him to sell the apartment, saying "high-profile celebrities like Ronaldo have a duty to take a stand" against the controversial commander-in-chief. Property details for Ronaldo's listing make no mention that the apartment is in Trump Tower . The home features floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of Central Park and the New York skyline, a posh master bedroom with its own dressing area and marble bath, burnished koa paneling and 18th century Parquet de Versailles floors.

The move was in part to escape the swampy Florida heat - Mar-a-Lago, where he lives, closes during the summer and the Palm Beach area empties as the wealthy second homeowners leave.

It was also designed to allow him closer oversight of the Trump Organization, headquartered in Trump Tower, and the subject of two criminal investigations - one from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, and the other from the New York Attorney General, Letitia James.

Trump's relocation also puts him in closer proximity to New York's powerbrokers as he mulls a 2024 presidential run.

On Tuesday Trump was once more hitting back against critical news stories - labelling as entirely false a report that he was enraged by SNL.

Trump Wanted His Justice Department to Stop ‘SNL’ From Teasing Him

  Trump Wanted His Justice Department to Stop ‘SNL’ From Teasing Him It was the middle of Donald Trump’s presidency, and he was—yet again—mad at Saturday Night Live. And he wanted the federal government to help him settle the score. In March 2019, the then-president of the United States had just watched an episode of the long-running, liberal-leaning NBC sketch comedy series (it wasn’t even a new episode, it was a rerun), and grew immediately incensed that the show was gently mocking him. “It’s truly incredibleIn March 2019, the then-president of the United States had just watched an episode of the long-running, liberal-leaning NBC sketch comedy series (it wasn’t even a new episode, it was a rerun), and grew immediately incensed that the show was gently mocking him.

In a stunning reversal, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort will plead guilty to two criminal charges and will cooperate with Robert Mueller's Russia investigation after all.

Trump Tower has rocketed to the top of the list of tourist stops in Manhattan. The crowds – and the robust security measures sparked by President-elect Donald Trump 's presence in the 58-story glass building – have created a surreal, carnival-like atmosphere on Fifth They could buy Trump campaign T-shirts, and check out the gold-bordered window displays for Trump Kids clothing and Ivanka Trump jewelry .

'The story that I asked the Department of Justice to go after ratings-challenged (without Trump!) Saturday Night Live, and other late-night Losers, is total Fake News.

'It was fabricated, there were no sources, and yet the Lamestream Media goes with it,' Trump said in a statement.

He did get in a shot at actor Alec Baldwin, who portrayed him on the show.

'I did say, however, that Alec Baldwin has no talent, certainly when it comes to imitating me. The one who had what it took was Darrell Hammond,' he added.

Trump also repeated his argument that satire programs - such as the late night comedy shows - should be considered political contributions.

'With all of that being said, however, I do believe that the 100% one-sided shows should be considered an illegal campaign contribution from the Democrat Party, hard to believe I got 75 million votes (the most of any sitting President) despite all of that, together with a very Fraudulent Election.

'2024 or before!,' he concluded.

The Daily Beast report claimed, that in early 2019, the then-president asked his advisers for options after watching an SNL episode that made fun of him.

More than half of exemptions to leave Australia are being rejected

  More than half of exemptions to leave Australia are being rejected Australia's Border Force approved just 11,867 applications out of 25,233 lodged in May, with no timeline in place for the lifting of the nation's hard border.Australia's Border Force approved just 11,867 applications out of 25,233 lodged in May, with no timeline in place for the lifting of the nation's hard border.

Two people familiar with the matter told The Daily Beast that Trump asked advisers and lawyers about what the Federal Communications Commission, the courts systems, or the Department of Justice could do to investigate SNL, Jimmy Kimmel, and other late-night comedians.

'It was more annoying than alarming, to be honest with you,' one of these sources told the news outlet.

The other source said they told Trump the Justice Department doesn't handle these matters.

The person told Daily Beast that Trump inquired: 'Can something else be done about it?'

They responded: 'I'll look into it.'

The person clarified they did not look into the matter.

In early 2019, Trump frequently tweeted complaints about SNL and Alec Baldwin, who portrayed him on the NBC satire.

'Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!' Trump tweeted in February 2019.

'Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!'

Trump continued his complaints the next month. And it was during that time, according to the Daily Beast report, he asked aides what could be done about the show.

NSW COVID-19 exposure sites: NSW Parliament shuts doors after MP contracts virus while dining in Paddington

  NSW COVID-19 exposure sites: NSW Parliament shuts doors after MP contracts virus while dining in Paddington Sydney's list of COVID-19 exposure sites continues to grow, with the heart of NSW's government now being added as a potential hotspot after a senior MP contracted the virus ahead of the state budget. Parliament House on Macquarie Street has shut its doors after NSW Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall revealed he tested positive for the virus after dining with colleagues at a restaurant in Paddington on Monday night.He was one of four Nationals MP — alongside Trevor Khan, Steph Cooke and Ben Franklin — who went into isolation yesterday after attending at Christo's Pizzeria in Paddington.

'It's truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of 'the other side.' Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows,' he wrote on Twitter in March of 2019.

And he added: 'Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this? There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News. Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA'

The late night sketch-comedy show was in repeats at the time but it didn't dampen Trump's anger.

That episode featured a parody of 'It's a Wonderful Life' with Trump shown imagining his life if he had never been elected president.

The program long used Trump as a punching bag with Baldwin lampooning him as a fumbling, incompetent commander in chief.

But presidents, no matter their party, are often mocked by the show - as are other prominent political figures, such as Hillary Clinton.

At the time Trump questioned whether the Federal Election Commission or Federal Communications Commission should investigate.

The FEC examines improper campaign contributions while the FCC originated the fairness doctrine - a regulation that requires the news give equal time to both sides.

However the doctrine was discontinued in 1987 and is no longer on the books.

Additionally, when it was used by the FCC as a method of distributing television and radio licenses, it was found not to apply to elected officials.

William Barr Speaks

  William Barr Speaks In the final months of the administration, the doggedly loyal attorney general finally had enough.In a series of interviews with me this spring, Barr spoke, for the first time, about the events surrounding his break with Trump. I have also spoken with other senior officials in the Trump White House and Justice Department, who provided additional details about Barr’s actions and the former president’s explosive response. Barr and those close to him have a reason to tell his version of this story. He has been widely seen as a Trump lackey who politicized the Justice Department.

Furthermore, Saturday Night Live is a comedy show and its satire is protected free speech.

In the days since he left the White House, reports have revealed how Trump sought to use the Justice Department as a way to punish his political enemies.

Democrats long accused Trump of politicizing the Justice Department and using it as a weapon against those who disagreed with him.

Emails released earlier this month by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee showed how Trump and his allies attempted to pressure the DoJ to investigate unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Trump's Justice Department also subpoenaed Apple for data from at least two Democrats who served on the House Intelligence Committee, as well as aides and their family members.

It also subpoenaed data from CNN and New York Times reporters, trying to uncover their sources.

Additionally, Trump had his Justice Department go after Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former aide to Melania Trump, for writing a book about the then-first lady.

The DoJ tried to seize profits from books written by Winston Wolkoff and by former Trump adviser John Bolton.

The attempts were dropped when Joe Biden became president.
