News leaked last month that the Trump organization, headed by Trump's sons, wanted to erect an new building in the North Minnesota city of Uptheriver that would completely block the view of the city's lake, Lake Serene. Residents quickly formed a coalition against the planned building and sent a letter to the Sixth District Court of Northern Minnesota.

"I promised my sons they could build the tallest building in North Min."
Trump then threatened to sign an executive order to drain Lake Seren for environmental reasons unless the city relented from their "unfair demands".
Don Jr. and Eric Trump first visited Uptheriver, (Pronounced Up-the-riv-er) in April and approached the City Council with their plan to erect a Trump Tower on the bank of Lake Serene. Thinking they would look like Minnesotans, the two were dressed in white shirts and bib overalls. City officials worried that their planned building would block the complete lakefront from view, causing a loss of boaters and tourists. City Attorney Pat Magroin argued the building's height would also be detrimental to flying geese.
Informants told OFF THE WALL news the reason behind Trumps wanting the building is to have their own resort to use when snipe hunting.
