Trump Tower apparently doesn’t have as many floors as Republican presidential nominee Donald TrumpDonald TrumpTrump: McConnell 'helpless' to stop Biden from packing court Romney on NRSC awarding Trump: Not 'my preference' McConnell sidesteps Trump calling him 'dumb son of a b----' MORE has claimed. 


According to an Associated Press report, Trump Organization marketing materials claim the building has 68 floors. But databases list the building as having 58. 

The most recent certificate of occupancy from the Department of Buildings, from 2003, also lists Trump Tower as 58 stories. 

Trump told The New York Times in 2003 that he skipped 10 numbers when labeling the residential floors because the ceilings on the lower floors were so tall. 

“It was all approved,” the billionaire said. “I brought it before the various agencies and got them to agree that I could start the building at Floor 30, because it equated to approximately 300 feet above ground.” 

The Times also reported that some condominium buyers in Trump’s other buildings had to sign documents acknowledging that their residences were on floors lower than the ones listed on elevator buttons.
