No matter what your opinion is on Donald Trump, the fact of the matter is that he’s going to be the new President of the United States come January. With the surprise election result, there has been widespread uncertainty and apprehension throughout the US, including various riots and protests that wouldn’t exactly be described as peaceful. No one seems quite sure on how Trump’s victory will affect the global economy, immigration and, of course, the border with Mexico.

One thing that is certain, however, is that an elevator has now taken centre stage following the election. The news has been filled for weeks by presidential debates, Trump’s outlandish policies and a certain amount of fear that World War 3 is just around the corner- however these have now all been replaced by constant footage of, that’s right, an elevator.

American television network C-SPAN have positioned cameras directly opposite the golden elevator doors at the base of Trump Tower. They have been supplying a constant live feed into their news network so that they can keep an eye on who is coming and going, providing a live update on who has been meeting with the President-elect.

Of course, this means that most of the footage is of the elevator going up and down, and you can’t help but feel that it is starting to steal a little of Trump’s thunder. It really is a gorgeous contraption- one that we’re sure he’d love to take with him to the White House!

So far, Trump seems to have been entertaining various television stars and various politicians, and the elevator is literally serving as a passage to a new presidential era. Once someone gets off the lift, you can hear reporters asking for them to answer a few questions- at which point the news will cut to them.

The elevator is proving a popular topic of discussion over in America, as watchers remain captivated by the excitement of who is going to emerge once the doors open. Well, it may not be the fastest or tallest lift in the world, but the elevator in Trump Tower is certainly the most famous right now.
