The aluminum tarp that Trump’s administration has removed from his buildings is actually a scrap metal removal.
Trump’s office said Tuesday that the aluminum, which was part of his $400 million purchase of Trump University, was a part of the aluminum company that made it.
Trump has not yet released the exact location of the scrap metal, but a spokesperson told CNN that it was in the same area of the building where aluminum is manufactured.
The scrap metal is in a landfill at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. The location is part of a $10 million project to remove the aluminum from the tower that Trump used to build his hotel and to build the new Trump International Golf Club in Atlantic City.
Trump and his team have been touting the aluminum removal effort as a boon for the environment and the economy.
They have also claimed that the removal will create jobs.
However, it’s not clear if the aluminum removed from the Trump Tower is part, if any, of that aluminum.
Trump, who was elected in November, has said he will donate $10 billion to clean up the nation’s air and water.
