Attention turns to security at Trump-branded global properties

Some Trump-branded hotels and luxury apartments around the world boosted security measures during and after the US election cycle, according to staff at international properties connected to the president-elect.

“We have taken additional precautionary measures and people are aware,” said Jitesh Talesara, a sales manager with Panchshil Realty, the developer behind Trump Towers in Pune, India. Talesara said the luxury apartment project has received more enquiries following Trump’s win.

“There are always going to be two sets of people — for Trump and against Trump. There are also people in India who are for and against him,” he told BuzzFeed News.

Talesara said he believed security at the hotel has been solid, so they are not concerned about things like terrorist attacks. “Any Tom, Dick and Harry cannot walk onto the property,” he said, citing the property’s 24/7 security system.
