Chicago mayor isn't thrilled by Trump sign

Donald Trump is going to Chicago to see his name in lights. "I want to see it," the billionaire developer told the Associated Press on Friday of his visit, planned in about two weeks, to view the 20-foot-tall letters that spell T-R-U-M-P on his skyscraper along the Chicago River. "People are loving it and I am going to look at it." Trump has been in a spat with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel over the installation of the giant sign, with the mayor calling it "architecturally tasteless" and Trump saying the "world-class sign" is a valuable addition to the Chicago skyline. Ever since the letters started going up this month, drawing criticism from Emanuel and a newspaper architecture critic, Trump and his sign have been the topic of national news reports and were even the subject of a report on The Daily Show.
