Signs Of The Time, Part 115

This “Signs Of The Time” post is actually about signage.

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s honorary street signs in downtown Chicago.

The Chicago Tribune reported this afternoon:

After much fanfare from Chicago aldermen over the righteousness of tearing down President-elect Donald Trump’s honorary street signs, city workers quietly removed the placards over the weekend.

A city sign shop crew pulled down the remaining two street signs on Wabash Avenue near Trump Tower at 8 a.m. Sunday, according to Chicago Department of Transportation spokesman Michael Claffey. A third Trump sign was stolen months ago…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Regular readers of Survival And Prosperity may remember me blogging about this decision by Chicago’s City Council last month. I wrote in a November 11 post entitled “Chicago Could Lose Billions In Federal Funding Under Trump Administration”:

Finally, there’s this little bit of political grandstanding more characteristic of the ruler(s) of some “Banana Republic.” Fran Spielman reported on the Chicago Sun-Times website back on November 1:

Chicago may well have earned Donald Trump’s unflattering ‘war zone’ label after piling up 17 homicides last weekend and 633 already this year.

But don’t tell that to a City Council filled with Democrats.

On Tuesday, the Council followed through on its promise to strip the Republican presidential nominee of an ego tribute he covets: the honorary ‘Trump Plaza’ designation outside the 96-story Trump International Hotel & Tower on the Chicago River that bears his name in huge, white letters

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

If rabid opposition and Sanctuary City-status didn’t already motivate U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to steer federal funds to other areas of the country, it’s a pretty good bet this stunt was the icing on the cake.

Trump tweet forthcoming?
