135k Signatures To Rename Trump Tower Street After Obama

By Published August 14, 2019

It all began like a joke after Elizabeth Rowin heard a comedian jokingly suggesting that one way to anger President Trump would be to rename the street in front of his signature property after his former President Barrack Obama.

Elizabeth Rowin then started an online petition which has now been signed by 135,000 people who land their signature to the petition.

“I started the petition as a joke after I saw a comedian joke about how it would make Trump so mad if it was named after former President Obama and I thought why not.”

Ms Rowin wrote on her online petition: “The City of Los Angeles recently honoured former President Barack Obama by renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway near Downtown LA in his honour.”

She then went on to point out some of the achievements of Barack Obama: “We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandalous free terms in office; and taking out Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3000 New Yorkers.”

While the online petition has received a great number of supporters, it may be short lived as Newsweek reports that a person must have been dead for at least two years before a city can rename a street after a public figure.

However, Ms Rowin, clearly ecstatic with the overwhelming support received on her petition is reasonably confident that Mr Obama will take his place as Mr Trump’s neighbor: “I’m sure the conditions can be changed. There are two streets in LA named after the former President Obama. These laws are arbitrary and can be worked around.”
