Should Donald Trump win the election tomorrow, he'll have to abandon his much loved New York City residence, the penthouse at Trump Tower. According to the New York Post, the midtown building is "a security nightmare," as residents, their guests, and the public can come and go freely.
"It's definitely a strong concern that he doesn't stay there, because it would be a lot harder to protect him there, a lot harder to secure,'' said the paper's source. "It's not like Camp David, where no one can get to it.''

Sure, if he's elected, the job does come with its own accommodations, one 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but we're not so sure Trump is going to want to give up his NYC abode, the 66th floor apartment that comes with views of Central Park and is reportedly worth $100 million.
The property implemented increased security protocols when Trump won the GOP nomination-checking IDs of everyone entering the building and requiring applications for all visitors-but it's not enough.
"He's not liked," one source told the Post. "So there's the concern of someone taking a shot at him."
Of course, Trump hasn't clinched the presidency just yet, so perhaps he'll cross that bridge if he gets to it.
