A man with a backpack is climbing Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan. Police and firefighters have been trying to reach him for over an hour. Officers broke out a window in an attempt to communicate with the man.
FOX News is reporting that the man may have a parachute in his backpack. Of course, it’s always possible he has a bomb.
Trump’s campaign headquarters are located in the tower. It’s being reported that Trump is not in the building.
The man apparently made a video prior to climbing the tower. In it he explains why he is doing it. He appears to be on drugs, or possibly deranged. Watch.

One Twitter user joked that the climber is probably Ted Cruz.
