Trump-drawn NYC sketch heads to auction

A 2005 sketch drawn by President Trump of the New York City skyline is expected to fetch at least $9,000 at auction.

The simple depiction of Manhattan’s famous skyline — complete with Trump Tower front and center — was created by the New York real estate mogul as part of a charity event, according to Nate D. Sanders Auctions.
