The Trump tower climber, who the authorities later identified as Stephen Rogata, has been the center of attention since Aug. 10. The young man from Virginia climbed the said tower using only suction cups.
His aim was to reach the top of the 60-storey skyscraper. However, the NYPD Crisis Response Team shut him down by pulling him off on the 48th floor.
The media revealed that Rogata is a supporter of the presidential candidate Donald Trump. As a result, some of the people went on to comment that Trump’s supporters are “crazy people.”
However, those who wanted to keep the issue light noticed that the Trump tower climber is the spitting image of One Direction member Harry Styles. Rogata has fair skin and sports curly shoulder-length hair.
While his uncanny resemblance to the boyband member-turned-solo artist is quite obvious, many were concerned about his real intentions. According to the Washington Times, Rogata wanted to get Trump’s attention.
Meanwhile, someone who did not identify himself as the Trump tower climber posted a video on YouTube. The man wearing a hoodie stated that he wants to call the aspiring president for an important matter.
“I am an independent researcher seeking a private audience with you to discuss an important matter. I guarantee that it is in your interest to honor this request. If my purpose was not significant, I would not risk my life pursuing it,” the man said in the video.
Signed under the name “Leven Thumps,” he asked the watchers to vote for Mr. Donald Trump on the upcoming 2016 U.S. presidential elections. On the other hand, Harry Styles would want to say something about this Trump tower climber, wouldn’t he?
Hollywood Life compiled the best and funniest reactions on Twitter. Aside from being a Harry Styles lookalike, you might be surprised about what the public thinks.

If Trump can’t keep people from climbing his tower, how’s he gonna keep them from climbing his wall? https://t.co/QLvqJAq1c8

If only Trump Tower was climb proof as the infamous Trump Wall.

You know what Trump Tower needs? A wall. A big, beautiful, suction-proof wall.

Shouts out to the Trump Tower suction cup guy for being the second craziest person to ascend that building.

To be fair, the 48th floor of Trump Tower is a much sought-after Pokemon Go gym.
