When a person is elevated from his party’s presidential nominee to president-elect, his safety concerns are also elevated.
So it was with Donald Trump, and it’s not just the Secret Service — the Federal Aviation Administration is pulling its weight also, according to the celebrity website TMZ.
To keep the area where Trump lives and works safe from a 9/11-style terrorist attack repeat, the FAA has established a 2-mile radius no-fly zone around Manhattan’s Trump Tower.
We’re told the FAA imposed the restriction almost immediately after Trump was declared the winner. No doubt the tragedy down the road on Sept. 11, 2001 weighed in on the FAA’s decision. The restrictions apply until January 21, 2017, the day after Inauguration.
Same goes for Veep Mike Pence’s home in Indiana … there’s now a 1-nautical mile radius airspace restriction.
In addition, because the president-elect tools around the country in his own Boeing 757, the FAA and Secret Service have jointly established special airport restrictions during his aircraft’s departures and arrivals.
The specifics of those restrictions remain classified, however.
