Petition Seeks To Rename Street In Front Of Trump Tower After Barack Obama

Although Donald Trump has been President for a while, people still refuse to face that fact and would rather continue to acknowledge Barack Obama as the President of the United States.

Folks out in New York are taking their love and support of the former President to the next level by signing an online petition to rename a block of a Manhattan Avenue after him – a block that just so happens to be the home of Trump Tower.

Over 100,000 people have signed the petition on The MoveOn.org. The site states that it’s asking Mayor de Blasio and the NYC City Council that Fifth Avenue, between 56th and 57th streets, be officially renamed “President Barack H. Obama Avenue.” Now, if this were to happen, any building addresses along that block “should be changed accordingly,” the petition says, which would change Trump Tower’s address to 725 President Barack H. Obama Ave.

While this seems like an amazing idea, Pix11 says to rename a street in New York City after a person, they must be dead. However, the creator of the petition, Elizabeth Rowen believes the rules can be changed.

“I am sure the conditions can be changed,” Rowin told Newsweek. “there are two streets in LA named after former President Obama. These laws are arbitrary and can be worked around,” she said.
