Donald Trump is having no luck with the winds of the Windy City.
With gusts of up to 40 m.p.h. on Sunday morning, the helicopter installation of the spire atop the 92-story Trump Tower in Chicago was canceled for the second time in as many days. The timing of another try is uncertain, leaving skyline watchers in suspense over the final aesthetic flourish for the skyscraper, the tallest in America since the 1974 completion of Sears Tower.
"The ironworkers made the call," said a Chicago police officer standing at East Wacker Drive and Wabash Avenue, across the Chicago River from the light-blue, glass-faced hotel and condominium skyscraper.
