A 19-year-old college student was busted coming into Trump Tower with a bag full of weapons, NY Daily News reports.
Alexander Wang a finance student at Baruch College said he’s a Trump supporter who likes to study in the building
Wang entered Trump Tower Monday evening. His bag set off a metal detector and the Secret Service asked him to open it.
Inside was a hunting knife, an M-100 firework, a Swiss Army knife, a flashlight, handcuffs, an 8-foot black rope, a clear water gun, a laptop and a strangulation wire called a garrote.
Wang was arrested by the NYPD for unlawful possession of fireworks and two counts of weapons possession.
He said he’d taken the bag into the building about ten times previously with no problems, including after Election Day.
Wang said he’s a survivalist and martial arts enthusiast. He said he enjoys shooting fireworks on a pier along the East River.
On his recommendation, police investigated his dorm room on the Upper East Side. There they found more fireworks but no guns. They have yet to tie Wang to any terrorist organization.
