Future air-traffic control tower at PTI (copy)

Federal Aviation Administration rendering shows $61 million air traffic control tower to be built at Piedmont Triad International Airport. Officials broke ground Wednesday

Today’s News & Record showed photos of the groundbreaking ceremony for the new $61 million control tower at Piedmont Triad International Airport. Call me naive, but I would have thought we could build a whole new airport for that amount of money.

With all the other pressing needs we have for federal dollars I would suggest that instead of control tower we name it Trump Tower.

Maybe then the president would pay for it using fake loans from fake banks. Sound good?
