President returns to Tower for only the THIRD time since taking office ...

Donald has returned to the iconic Manhattan skyscraper that served as the backdrop for his reality TV shows and the launch of his ground-breaking presidential bid for only his third time since taking office.

President is staying in his penthouse suite at Tower this week as he and the first lady attend the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday. 

He arrived in lower Manhattan in spectacular style, disembarking Marina One with security ready and a slick black limousine prepared to transport him to his luxury accommodation.

The billionaire president spent the night in New York in August of 2017 during a working vacation but hasn't been back in a year. His last stay at Tower was during the 2017 gathering of the UN's 193 member nations.

I think the fact that their parade, they didn't show off nuclear weapons for the first time is a major accomplishment,' U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley told CNN on Sunday. 

'But, look, we are far from reaching the end of this. And I think what we want to focus on is denuclearization with verification.
