Over 100K people have signed a petition to have the block where the Trump Tower is located renamed after former president, Barack Obama.
According to reports, the petition is requesting that all the buildings between 56th and 57th Streets on Fifth Avenue change their addresses and if the petiion turns out successful Trump Tower's new address would be: "725 President Barack H. Obama Avenue, New York, NY 10022."
“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 scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3,000 New Yorkers," creator Elizabeth Rowin wrote.
The petition was created back in December. What are your thoughts on this?

"Last year, across every race, across every age group in America, incomes rose and poverty fell. The typical household income grew by about $2,800—which is the single-biggest one-year increase on record. We lifted 3.5 million people out of poverty, the largest one-year drop since 1968." —President Obama
