(NAT OF POLICE OFFICER SAYING, "WE'VE GOT TO FREE THIS AREA UP. YOU'VE GOT TO MOVE.") People are flocking to the Trump Tower in New York, in hopes of catching a glimpse of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump entering his Manhattan office. Whether they like him or not, local and tourists are gathering at the iconic skyscraper. (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) TOURIST ERIKA BITAR, SAYING: It's a historic landmark now that he's running for president and we like Trump. Just to see him, whether he is or isn't president, it's a person they (motioning to her children) can go home and tell their friends that they saw." Visitors take photos outside, go inside the Atrium, and of course, visit the Trump store. But the charm is lost on some local residents. (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) RESIDENT MONICA LANTRY, SAYING: "It's like a mob scene, you can't walk down the sidewalk, you have to walk in the street." It's a problem that's not likely to go away, unless Trump loses in November.
